In your back yard not mine. Interesting that individuals who would not live next to these wind and solar aberrations are in favor of these destructive entities. Windmills not only slaughter migrating fowl but birds which habitat locally. The toxic containment in solar panels is slightly more the Argon and krypton found between panes of glass in your windows. These two gasses are inert, odorless, colorless and nontoxic, unless of course, you inject the gas into your body by needle. This certainly is not recommended.
On the other hand, solar panels contain highly toxic hazardous cadium telluride, copper indium selenide, cadmium gallium (DI) selenide, copper indium gallium (DI) selenide, hexafluoroethane, lead, and polyvinyl fluoride. Perhaps we could place the lead recouped after the life of the panel is exhausted, or through forces of nature, large hail, tornado or high winds, into our paints.
One of my greatest aspirations would be to see my home and property values plunge and to have the serenity of the countryside destroyed by the these obsene towers cutting through the flesh of our feathered friends. Our wildlife would be destroyed, but why should the city dwellers care? They would receive the benefit and we of the rural areas would receive the carnage.
If this concept is so viable, why are we subsidizing wind and solar. Why should we pay more through higher prices of electricity if wind and solar are so efficient? Why do we need so many thousands of acres to pollute and destroy nature?
We must protect our children’s heritage from gluttonous promoting investors living in mansions, flying private gas guzzling jets who would destroy the beauty and peacefulness of our farmlands.
