Environmentalist Warns Of Next Big Eco-Threat — Toxic Solar Panels?

Why do so many Leftist solutions to pressing problems tend to backfire?

We don’t just mean the economic solutions, the kind that has oil-rich Venezuela eating stray cats off the streets.

We don’t just mean social problems like schools in Democrat strongholds failing those who have the misfortune of living there:

nly 5 percent of Detroit public-school eighth graders were proficient or better in math. Only 7 percent were proficient or better in reading.

In the Cleveland public schools, only 11 percent of eight graders were proficient or better in math and only 10 percent were proficient or better in reading.

In the Baltimore public schools, only 11 percent were proficient or better in math and only 13 percent were proficient or better in reading. — Source CNS

One of their biggest crisis-event causes is Environmentalism.

That’s a big word that used to mean people who wanted clean air, clean water, and no litter.

Now it means “carbon footprints” and global cooling Wait, no… Global warming No, that’s not it either.

Climate Change. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

The solution? Green energy.

Oh, wait.

Michael Shellenberger — the president of Environmental Progress, a nonprofit organization working to promote clean energy — detailed the real life impacts of discarded solar installation. Solar technology typically contains cadmium, lead and other toxic chemicals that can’t be extracted without taking apart the whole panel, resulting in entire solar panels being considered hazardous, Shellenberger noted in a Wednesday Forbes article.

More specifically, these toxic chemicals become an environmental threat when solar panels reach their end-of-life stage and need to be disposed. Panels left in landfills may break apart and release toxic waste into the ground or even enter bodies of water. Solar panel disposal in “regular landfills [is] not recommended in case modules break and toxic materials leach into the soil,” Electric Power Research Institute determined in a 2016 study.

There is growing concern over the possibility of rainwater washing cadmium out of panels and into the environment. In Virginia, for example, a group of locals are pushing back against a proposal to construct a 6,350 acre solar farm in Spotsylvania County.

Why should that surprise us? The tried to force those stupid toxic, mercury-filled spiral ‘compact fluorescent’ bulbs down our throats.

And besides that there’s the small matter of the batteries such energy are stored in. They tend to use the rare earth, Lithium.

If the solar panels weren’t enough to make you rethink the environmental claims of ‘green energy’, maybe the mining of Lithium will. Look it up. The pictures alone are devastating.

It might make for an interesting conversation the next time a sanctimonious hybrid driver tries to chew you out for driving a real car or even (gasp!) a truck.

One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.

Conveniently available in Both Ladies…

AND Men’s versions.

Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.

They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!

They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.

Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Ladies, get yours here.

Bros, click here, instead.

Will CNN be reporting on this?

Probably not.

CNN — all the news that’s fit to flush.

Are you tired of the fake news that spews forth from CNN and the lame-stream media? Well, you don’t have to put up with their crap any more! Clash Daily is proud to release a very special brand of toilet paper!

Send to your liberal friends so that they can wipe their minds clear of the waste produced by the Communist News Network!

Get yours here!
