“Used solar panels are piling up all around the world with no efficient means to recycle the very toxic substances used in those panels.”
Toxic waste from solar panels
“Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”! Lyrics from a Who song. That’s how I view the world of energy!
While the GND and global warming nuts try to blame fossil fuels for all our environmental problems, not a one of them will discuss the potential environmental problems with solar and wind, not even a whisper!
We know that wind generators use a disproportionate amount of energy to build, have limits lifespans, have disposal issues and cause similar destruction of wildlife, killing birds that the same ‘greenie’s’ would use as reasons to halt fossil fuel use.
A study done by Univ. of Calif. Berkley of all places, indicated that those used solar panels are piling up all around the world with no efficient means to recycle the very toxic substances used in those panels, and that if stacked on end would greatly exceed the amount of nuclear waste in existence. They won’t tell you that if those solar panels are broken apart, we’d have toxic waste leaching into our soil and water all around the world! No, they won’t talk about any of the dangers, they just advocate how wonderful it is ….. these are true hypocrites and really do reflect those lyrics.
Fossil fuels have their issues, but we’ve learned how to make them as clean as possible, and they are still relatively plentiful.
