In Nebraska, over 14,000 solar panels were destroyed by hail and sent to a landfill because recycling them was considered too expensive. The image of a wind turbine graveyard in Texas highlights the environmental impact of renewable energy, as by 2030, an estimated 52,000 tonnes of blade waste will need disposal, potentially causing groundwater contamination.
NET ZERO- Over 14,000 solar panels destroyed by hail in Nebraska, were sent to landfill!
Because It’s too expensive to recycle them 🤡
We’re being forced to use the energy sources most vulnerable to climate damage because there’s money in it. Not because it makes sense 💥 pic.twitter.com/CXRoX0NpXb

NET ZERO – This is a wind turbine grave yard in Texas.
By 2030, 52,000 tonnes of blade waste will need to be recycled or buried in the earth, leaching forever chemicals into the ground water.
Shh… look over there! pic.twitter.com/gsBRtx6pbu
