Unbelievable BS

But the impact of this orthodoxy has been quite concrete. Are the state subsidies justified? Or a total waste of money? Matter of debate. Here's an example from Germany. Bear in mind that China is now the numero uno producer of solar panels. Which energy source is used to deliver those panels trans global? Here's a clue. It ain't solar:

In fact, all German solar energy systems combined produce less electricity than two nuclear power plants. And even that number is sugarcoated, because solar energy in a relatively cloudy country like Germany has to be backed up with reserve power plants. This leads to a costly, and basically unnecessary, dual structure. Figures indicating the peak performance of solar energy systems are easily misunderstood, a report by the German Physical Society says. "Essentially," the report concludes, "solar energy cannot replace any additional power plants."
