Op-ed: Biden administration’s “green energy” schemes AREN’T AS GREEN as they seem
07/02/2024 // Olivia Cook // Views

The Biden administration's "green energy" policies that have received support from some states aren't as green as they seem – and can even lead to a potential collapse of the power grid.

Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) President Craig Rucker made this remark in an op-ed published on Inside Sources. According to him, President Joe Biden's energy policies cause a huge rise in electricity demand. In contrast, these same green mandates cut down on the U.S.'s power generation capacity.

The White House is mandating Americans to switch from fossil fuel-based appliances – like gas furnaces, stoves and water heaters – to all-electric versions. Additionally, vehicles with engines that run on gasoline and diesel fuel – including cars, trains and trucks – are being phased out in favor of battery-powered models. (Related: Study finds electric vehicles pollute the environment 1,850 times more than gas-powered cars.)

These drastic measures are expected to significantly increase electricity demand. Meanwhile, other regulations are reducing energy production by shutting down reliable coal, gas, hydropower and nuclear power plants. These are being replaced by costly and inconsistent wind and solar projects that depend on the weather and only produce 30 percent to 40 percent electricity.

Rucker also outlined several issues with this approach. One major concern is the massive cost of this "green transformation," which could exceed $100 trillion. Another concern he mentioned was the impact of natural events.

For example, in March, severe thunderstorms destroyed 3,500 acres of solar panels near Houston. Before the storm, these panels could power 62,000 homes for eight to nine hours on a sunny day. Now, with many panels shattered, their output is much lower.

Disposing renewable energy products also poses problems

Despite this, Rucker said the U.S. Department of the Interior plans to install solar panels on 22 million acres of public lands in 11 Western states – an area almost as large as Indiana. This translates to 22 billion panels if installed at 1,000 panels per acre, not including those on rooftops or private lands. Even without damage, these panels can only last between 20 and 30 years.

Unfortunately, damaged solar panels can't be recycled – raising questions about disposal logistics, costs and responsibilities. They can't be recycled and must be disposed of in special landfills to avoid contamination from heavy metals and other toxic elements.

Wind turbines face similar issues, with onshore turbines lasting 20 to 25 years while off-shore ones having a shorter lifespan. Managing the disposal of thousands of massive off-shore turbines, along with their blades, generators and nacelles (the cover housing all of the generating components of the wind turbine), is a daunting task. The blades alone, which can't be recycled, need to be cut into pieces and landfilled. (Related: Noise pollution from offshore wind turbines could lead to the EXTINCTION OF WHALES.)

Large batteries for power grids, trains and trucks also pose disposal challenges. They create fire hazards that are much more difficult to put out due to the chemicals used for their production. Such batteries also need careful handling during transport to landfills or recycling centers.

In the long run, thousands of wind turbines, billions of solar panels and new transmission lines will cover millions of acres of farmland, wildlife habitats and scenic areas. Keeping large backup batteries charged will require even more wind and solar installations.

America's efforts to reduce carbon emissions could ultimately be overshadowed by the growing fossil fuel use in China and India, Rucker concluded. Instead of focusing solely on carbon emissions, Congress might need to reconsider the current energy transformation plans before natural events cause further damage.
