When the BioMass Hits the Wind Turbine

088 - Solar Pollution

October 11, 2020

Solar energy is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide.  It currently produces about 2% of the US electricity - but is anticipated to generate as much as 30% within a decade.  And as is true with any large industry - it will create its share of problems.

Join Annie and Jay Warmke of Blue Rock Station for a discussion of the environmental problems the growth of solar energy will generate for our planet - from mineral extraction, to pollution during manufacturing, to how to deal with the waste stream when the systems grow old and fail.
