The sun is not in the ground. It may not be obvious, but Solar energy requires no invasive surgery on our planet. Every day we look below the Earth’s surface for energy. Why are we drilling and fracking when we know there are huge environmental costs?
BP has spent over $10 Billion on Deep Water Horizon and the checks are still being written.
These are long term liabilities that cause us more then just financial harm. Pollution is preventable disease.
The adolescent failures of the solar industry have zero environmental impact. When Solyndra imploded it didn’t leave a pile of goo and almost kill off an entire ecosystem.
The sun is a clean billion year energy source. Unlike companies, the sun is not susceptible to failure. Solar companies may come and go, but they will not prevent the sun from shining or create an environmental tragedy.
Look up, the sun is shining in the sky.
