Solar’s Dirty, Heavy Metal Secret

In yet another startling example of the hypocrisy of radical environmentalists, a new study from Environmental Progress found that “solar panels create 300 times more toxic waste per unit of energy than do nuclear power plants.” Because they use heavy metals and known carcinogens like lead, cadmium, and chromium that are known to leak into the environment and cause incredible damage to people, solar panels are a looming environmental disaster.

Outside of Europe, there is no required disposal method. In fact, in some countries, people burn the discarded panels to get to the valuable copper wiring, which causes further damage to the environment.

So not only do solar panels incinerate birds, but they also pose a health risk to humans. When it comes down to it, “environmentalists” care only about their agenda, no matter what the facts are.
