(Before It's News)

Forget how many birds are fried when getting too close to a solar panel, including Bald Eagles, now we hear that a byproduct of solar panels causes even more problems. All of this over the cause of so-called “Climate Change” the existence of which has been in effect since the beginning of the earth apparently. Here tis:

New federal data shows a potent greenhouse gas — that’s also a byproduct of solar panel construction — is on the rise.

Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) is a key chemical agent used to manufacture photovoltaic cells for solar panels, suggesting government subsidies and tax credits for solar panels may be a driving factor behind the 1,057 percent in NF3 over the last 25 years. In comparison, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions only rose by about 5 percent during the same time period.

NF3 emissions are 17,200 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas over a 100 year time period.

The research was financially supported by the Technology Foundation STW, which is a governmental agency of the European Commission.
