Massive solar farms threaten environment, human health, and acquifers | Eastern North Carolina Now

Solar farms, like wind farms require a lot of land to produce power, much, much more than conventional power sources for a similar amount of power.  They also dominate the land they are placed upon and contain quite a few toxic substances.  Counties in North Carolina are given regulatory powers over wind and solar farms, but Beaufort County has only a weak solar farm ordinance and no wind farm ordinance at all.  We are largely at the mercy of the conniving developers.

In California, where the push for wind and solar started sooner and has been more intensive,  it is already becoming apparent that solar farms are devastating the environment, threatening wildlife, threatening human health, and even threatening water supplies.  Both the right and left seem to be recognizing the insanity of this. Far left filmmaker Michael Moore produced a documentary, "Planet of the Humans" that exposed the dangers of wind and solar power production.  President Trump has pointed out the negative impact of wind turbines.  Now the conservatiive Epoch Times has written an article also exposing the dangers of solar farms:

North Carolina needs to get ready for all of this, because blowing up their coal plants and using wind and solar instead has been the wet dream of "woke" electric monopoly Duke Energy for some time, and now that their pet RINOs in the legislature like Phil Berger and Jim Perry and Timmy Moore have pushed through NC's Green New Deal, HB951, we are about to have this shoved down out throats.

Germany's center-left government has recently approved expanding the area used for wind and solar power from 0.75% of Germany's land area to 1.5%.  While they are pushing laws requiring farmers to abandon some of their fields to return land to nature, they are clearcutting ancient forests to put up mostly Chinese made wind turbines and solar panels.  Local environmentalists are in court now trying to save the ancient Reinhartswald forest, the setting of the Grimm's Fairy Tales from being destroyed to put up wind turbines.  This is where North Carolina is headed with this idiot wind / solar push by the left, the woke, and the corrupt RINOs.

A recent poll found that almost 80% of Germans oppose the center-left government's "net zero CO2" agenda, but nonetheless, the government is doubling down on it.

Another danger, solar farm after a hurricane:

The fact that too often, the only goods on offer in stores are from China is not a good thing but one that does not have the strategic importance of handing them control of our energy, as Bolshevik Bob wants with wind and solar. The importance of not letting China control critical segments of our economy like energy and medicine is light years more important than whether we can find a hammer or beach chair made in the US or at least somewhere other than China. The fact that Bolshevik Bob tries to equate the two is a good indicator that he / she is a Chinese troll.

So its is OK for you to shop in China but not others? You getting a special deal? Are you a Chicom? I bet that's it. You're a spy working undercover for the Chinese. Its the only possible conclusion.

It is not about money going to China from Walmart. It is about being dependent on a major enemy for our energy. Wind and solar makes us far more dependent on your friends the ChiComs for our energy than oil ever did on the Arabs, and China is much more a geopolitical adversary.

As to the SW, the El Nino / La Nina cycle goes back and forth every few years, and this year happens to be a strong El Nino year, and that happens in that part of the world in a strong El Nino year. Strong El Nino years have happened from time to time as long as people have lived in that area.

That's not how it works BD, and probably explains why some fall for every crackpot theory posted on the internet.
BYW: No problem with conservatives, white supremist and the Christian Taliban, them I got problems with.
And that does not make me a Marxist. Again you form conclusions that are not valid.

CV, you shop at Walmart and send your money tp China most everyday. Willing to bet your house is filled with stuff made in China. Give it a rest or stop sending them your money.

"To come to a conclusion one must look at the positive and negatives of each process" Just looking at pluses and minuses will vary depending on whether one is an American conservative or an American Marxists. It is right vs wrong that SHOULD to be reasoned PRIOR to conclusion.

Nobody is going to "cook". The Earth has been through these centrueis long warm periods repreatedly. which alternate with cooling periods. The last one, the Medieival Warm Period was warmer than today and a period of prosperiy. Your Climate Scientology pagan religious cult is just wrong, and part of the globalist totalitarian movement.

China is helping fund the globalists' push for wind and solar because they are making money hand over fist both from selling the equipment to us and from making our industry less efficient and competive with theirs. But then you seem to be a cheerleader for everything China wants to do, Little Bobbie. You are one of their trolls. Are you based out of Beijing or some other city?

So you think that because China is doing it, we should all do it? China will cook just like the rest of us. Better hope they figure it out.

As usual, Bolshevik Bob likes what Red China is selling, namely wind and solar energy equipment. Curiously, China uses mostly coal to power their own energy, building scores of new coal power plants, while they want to pawn expensive and unrealiable wind and solar off on western countries. Wonder why?

No, I mean you took a set of somewhat factual, or sometimes complexly factual statements and came to an untrue conclusion.
Fact: All energy production on earth causes pollution.
Are some forms of energy production better than others? It depends. To come to a conclusion one must look at the positives and negatives of each process.
Anyone not doing that is selling something. I'm not buying. And neither should you.
