LOL: Made in China Solar Panels Create 3X MORE Carbon Than Burning Natural Gas

America, specifically, and Western civilization, generally, is getting rolled by Communist China in every possible way. It’s almost funny in a sick sort of way. The way that China lies, steals, and cheats in every situation is kind of hilarious when you take two steps back. They’re truly brazen. Take, for example, the way that China has convinced Western governments to lie about how much carbon dioxide it pumps into the atmosphere to create solar panels, even as China has captured 75% of the global photovoltaic (PV) module production.

Globalist agencies like the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), both of which are UN scam groups, will tell you that switching to power production from solar panels is a “net zero” proposition. Solar panels are so good, and fossil fuels like natural gas are so double-plus not good that only sane people will use solar panels. Natural gas is bad, and it will make the weather fatal 150 years from now. But solar panels are good, and they will save you from dying.

These lies—and bribes from interested parties—are why even red states like Texas are now relying on fickle and unreliable “green” energy sources like solar panels and windmills.

An Italian researcher named Enrico Mariutti noticed something odd about the IPCC’s energy production numbers when it came to China’s photovoltaic production. Namely, the IPCC has no data at all from China to track how much energy it’s expending to build Joe Biden’s “net zero” solar panels. Despite having no data at all from them, the IPCC claims that China expends 48 gCO2/kWh (48 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt hour) to produce solar panels.

Mariutti wondered how the IPCC came to that figure when they had no data at all from China. Based on his calculations, he has proven that China is actually expending somewhere between 170 and 250 gCO2/kWh to produce solar panels.

Meanwhile, simply burning natural gas for energy expends 50 gCO2/kWh. In plain English, China’s solar panel production causes 3X to 5X more carbon production in the atmosphere than simply burning natural gas.

Everybody knows how Communist China came to be the world’s #1 producer of solar panels. It’s the same way that they do everything else. They don’t have an inventive bone in their collective bodies, but they sure do know how to enthusiastically steal from other countries. Once upon a time, German companies were the world’s leaders in the production of solar panels. They all went broke and went out of business after the commies in the CCP stole their designs and started using slave labor to pump out solar panels much more cheaply.

As the group Environmental Progress has reported, “The modelers are estimating the carbon emissions of solar production as if the panels are still made mostly in the West, grossly underestimating their carbon intensity, even as governments rush to draft and implement net zero policy based around the very same flawed data.”

Translation: You’d have to be crazy or not actually believe in the fake theory of global warming to think that buying solar panels from China will be good for the environment.

Solar panel production is so inefficient when it comes to releasing carbon dioxide that Mariutti estimates the EU is underestimating its carbon output from solar panels by 5.4 to 7.6 metric tons per year. That’s hilarious! That is the equivalent of putting an additional 3.4 to 4.8 million cars on the road every year.

The lesson, as always, is never to listen to the climate zealots. They are wrong about everything, and Communist China will exploit their stupid naivete to the max every time.
