Mass produced solar energy is a joke and a scheme to prey on the ignorance of tree huggers and the political correctness of government officials. Today’s solar eclipse proves it.
I’m not bashing solar energy as a whole. If one chooses to install panels on your property to supplement your electricity usage – knock yourself out. If it doesn’t break my leg or pick my pocket, I don’t care how anyone spends their own money. In other words – if what you do doesn’t harm me or confiscate my money, why should I care?
But there in lies the problem. The solar energy scam does both. It harms us all by creating a fallacy that we are endangering the Earth by the use of fossil fuels and that the cure is “renewable” energy like solar. Then the creators of this hoax con governments into confiscating our tax dollars and redistributing them to the solar industry by way of subsidies. Actually they don’t even need to “con” governments, for many of the renewable energy wackos work in government.
The left is predictable in their response. Well, they say, big oil and gas also receive massive government subsidies – so there. This is a disingenuous argument at best. It’s comparing apples to oranges.
