For years, the Left and Green Lobby have been pushing solar panels as the best way “cleanest” way of producing energy. They say that it is sustainable, clean and efficient, but all three of these assertions are wrong. A new report shows that solar panels are actually 300 times more toxic in the long-run than nuclear power.
The materials used to make the solar panels create deadly toxins and need fairly constant replacement. Billions of dollars in taxpayer money have been used to subsidize and research solar power, and it was all for nothing.
No industry that requires $50 billion in subsidy should ever be called a success. This is a clear example of special interest groups pushing an agenda that they knew to be damaging. Added to the shocking costs (and arguable results) of the Paris Climate Accord, the West has been sleepwalking into an energy crisis fueled by ideology. It’s time to start looking at real energy independence.
As reported in Young Conservatives:
Liberals are always pushing the nation toward solar power because, they imagine, it is “cleaner” than any other power source. However, a new study finds that solar panels generate 300 times more toxic waste than nuclear reactors!
The new study by the group Environmental Progress finds that the manufacturing of solar panels is fraught with toxic materials, Daily Caller reported.
The report found that solar panels use heavy metals, including lead, chromium and cadmium, which can harm the environment. The hazards of nuclear waste are well known and can be planned for, but very little has been done to mitigate solar waste issues.
