Solar Power Is Dirty Power

by CJ Orach - peopleneedpower
The crystal matrices in solar panels are produced by using high temperatures to bake the silicon that the solar panels are all made from. These ovens create CO2 emissions like you would not believe. What makes matters worse if  “Youre heartsick about global warming, so youve just paid $25,000 to put a solar system on the roof of your home. How do you respond to news that it was manufactured with a chemical that is 17,000 times more potent than CO2 as a cause of global warming.”

Moreover, the dopants used are so toxic recycling solar panels is a nightmare even with the lead solder switched to silver which adds to the cost of manufacturing.
An alternative to silicon based solar panels , copper solar panels, are being touted as panacea for all of the above issues with silicon.  However, copper solar panels are less efficient than silicon and the process for manufacturing them cheaply may take years to develop.
In the mean time, Germany has discovered their enormous investment in Solar power has not paid off as expected. The bottome line: When the sky’s are overcast blocking the Sun’s rays scant power is produced. 
“Germany is cutting solar-power subsidies because they are expensive and inefficient.” Bjorn Lomborg

According to Der Spiegel, “even members of Chancellor Angela Merkels staff are now describing the policy as a massive money pit. Philipp Rösler, Germanys minister of economics and technology, has called the spiraling solar subsidies a threat to the economy.”
