@hankg Oh it's not rhetoric. It really was a question. That is a subject I master, far from it. Of course, it all depends on the purpose. If it's about replacing coil plants by solar panels, I suppose it's a good thing. But if these solar panel are here to produce more energy, then, it's probably not beneficial 🤔
@AugierLe42e @hankg To go further about your good intuition:
"Increasing the share of renewable energy will not make us any less dependent on fossil fuels as long as total energy consumption keeps rising."
@hankg @AugierLe42e But lie is the enemy of good and very good for rejection. Solar panels are not clean. It causes less greenhouse gas emissions than some other things, but it also produces way more some other ecological problems. Moreover it is less independent, because there is not always enough sun, but electricity is wanted always, so more devices are needed (batteries, etc.). We could prefer solar panels to some other things, but no need to falsify reality for that.
