Even more evidence that “green energy” is bad for the planet. According to the bbc, the move from coal-fired power stations to “mixed sources of power including wind, solar, and gas” has major environmental downsides. It has led to a rise in the number of electrical switches and circuit breakers “needed to prevent serious accidents.” Turns out the switchgear necessary to avoid electrical overloads and fires in power stations due to the increased use of green energy requires huge amounts of a synthetic greenhouse gas: sulfur hexafluoride, or sf6.
Greenies should be turning red, because sf6 just happens to have the highest global warming potential of any known substance — 23,500 times greater than co2. Oops. A study from the University of Cardiff found that the impact of sf6 used in Europe in 2017 alone equaled the emissions from 1.3 million extra cars on the road. And the gas remains in the atmosphere for at least 1,000 years. Blame gasbags like Algore flying around the world in private jets, raking in the greenbacks.
