It takes more oil to produce a solar panel than it will likely ever generate.
"It takes more oil to produce a solar panel than it will likely ever generate."
What? What the hell are you trying to say?? Yes, in a very strange way, you are right. Solar panels do not generate oil....duh.
My wife has lasted for 30 Looong years and still going. I wish I could harness her nagging power
What's it like to be so wrong?
Sounds like a nice cut but totally untrue and anyone who thinks knows. So what IS your agenda ? Status quo ?
This is, of course, not true. You ust wonder at the motives of somebody writing such rubbish.
Solar panels don't generate oil.
And some of us travel through most if not all of those stages during our lifetime. The main thing is the destination - Solar power to (and for) the PEOPLE!
solar panels don't produce oil.
At the risk of feeding the tolls... I'll bite. Just how much energy (you pick the form; oil, electricity, pandas) does it take to produce one solar panel? And where do you get your information (references)? Give me facts and I'll belive you - otherwise you're either mis-informed, mis-guided, trolling, or some other waste of my time.
The only source in the link you posted is to an article from 2001 - that's 10 years old. Modern solar panels are much more energy efficient than those from 10 years ago. It sounds to me like you heard something quoted as fact once, totally bought into it and are now spewing that nonsense everywhere you get the chance.
So prove him wrong. Where are your facts? Or did you just hear something someone quoted as fact, totally bought into it but were too lazy to go learn any more about it and would rather sit there and be smugly self-righteous about the one tiny little aspect of this issue you learned about while you were waiting for Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me to start on NPR?
Depending on the sun characteristics where you live, normal silicon solar panels usually must be used full time for 10-20 years to generate the amount of electricity that it takes to produce them. That's why they're so expensive. No agenda, just like being an informed consumer. If you live in Arizona, it probably makes sense. Portland - not so much.
Ummm, yeah. I'm pretty sure solar panels produce electricity, not oil...
