Re: “Sierra Club touts benefits of solar power

It is also funny to me that they claim that most states have rejected paying net metering customers less than what their original rules may have allowed. I believe this may be just the opposite in fact. And why is it so politically incorrect to have a real and honest discussion about the negative aspects of solar farming? No one ever seems to raise concerns over the amount of land that is laid barren to house these massive solar facilities and what kind of impact that has on the species living in the area. Or what these facilities do to natural water ways when they are allowed to be built with little to no supervision or guidelines. Or what these people are required to do with the panels when they stop being efficient and have to be replaced. They obviously cannot go to the landfill like regular garbage. And what about the chemicals that are used to produce the panels? How toxic are they and how are they being handled? People talk about solar as if it the earth's energy solution to the polluting fossil fuels as if there is nothing negative about solar energy development, but I don't believe there is anything that is truly the perfect energy system that does not have negative consequences whether you see them now or in 100 years.
