Unwelcome ‘Treat’: Tonnes of Toxic Solar Panels Already Headed For A Landfill Near You

Solar panels were meant to be all sunshine and lollipops, with nothing but tingly virtuous feelings for their subsidised owners. With an effective economic lifespan of little more than a decade – after 12 years in service their output is nothing like their original capacity and at the 15-year mark, it becomes a pointless fraction, […]

Dream On: Finite Mineral Resources Mean Grand Wind & Solar Transition Must Inevitably Fail

As the grand delusion of an all-wind and sun-powered future unravels in Europe, rational thinkers are turning to the insatiable demand for minerals that comes with the ‘inevitable transition’ and pointing out that what’s contemplated is not only impossible, but simply ludicrous. The volumes of high-value minerals such as copper and aluminium required in every […]

Californian Covers Water Supply Channels With Solar Panels – Laden With Toxic Gunk

Solar panels are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals. Ground up and dumped in their millions into landfills, it’s not difficult to imagine the effect on water supplies, the environment and human health as their poisonous entrails leach into the water table over the coming […]

Renewable Energy Madness: Why Net-Zero CO2 Targets Herald New Miserable Dark Age

Wisdom comes with experience: people soon wise up to the reality of the wind and solar ‘transition’ once they’ve spent time freezing or boiling in the dark. Over time, the experience will be shared by more of our compatriots on planet Earth. Obsessive, indeed maniacal, renewable energy policies are a guarantee of crippling power bills […]

Filthy Future: Wind & Solar’s Toxic Waste Legacy Problem For Next Generation

Wind and solar acolytes show their true colours when it comes to the toxic waste legacy being generated by wind turbines and solar panels. In a case of out of sight, out of mind, the fact that thousands of wind turbine blades are already being dumped in landfills and millions of solar panels are headed […]

Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Mountains of Toxic Rubbish Dumped in Local Landfills

The millions of solar panels headed for landfill are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium, and heavy earth material. Then there’s the landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic Turbine […]

Toxic Heavy Metal Cocktail: What’s Really Inside Solar Panels

The RE acolyte is all care and no responsibility, which helps to explain his obsession with solar power. With millions of solar panels already at the end of their useful lives and off to be crushed and dumped in local landfills, it’s probably a good time to find out precisely what’s inside them. For the […]

Why Everything You’ve Heard About Solar Is Wrong: What the Media Don’t Want You to Know

The mainstream press would have you believe that we’re already being exclusively powered by wind and solar, and that neither of them have any downside, at all. Michael Shellenberger knows otherwise. Michael, with his properly reasoned support for nuclear power, draws plenty of heat from the pro-unreliables hacks in the MSM for his equally reasoned […]

Solar’s Toxic Legacy: When the Panels Wear Out, Who Cleans Up the ‘Green’ Energy Mess?

Because solar panels can’t be economically recycled, millions upon millions of them are headed for landfill. Around the globe, countless millions of panels have already reached their use by dates. Over the next decade millions of tonnes of them are headed for the dump. Each panel is a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, […]

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Counting the Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar’s Toxic Legacy

Behind every smug Tesla driving show pony, there’s literally a toxic lake of sludge building up somewhere in another part of the world. Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of […]
