Solar energy conversion has its place, but we are becoming obsessive about it. Clearing a field of all its greenery and turning it into a solar farm may not be the most productive use of a scarce resource ( fertile land). It wold be far better to site the solar farm on desert land close to the sea, and use the solar energy to create hydrogen to transport to energy hungry cities. Hydrogen is a clean and efficent power source.

So many people seem to think they are saving the world by installing a couple of solar panels, and buying an electric car. They don't look at the total picture, and cut down trees and hedges in their gardens, pump themselves full of antibiotics and other drugs, and spray weedkiller over the barren parking lots they have created where their gardens used to be. They then use petrol leaf blowers to drive surface detritus out into the road to be washed down the public drains. They throw their litter onto the streets and into the environment, where much of it finds its way into the rivers and seas.

The governments don't help either. They introduce taxes and restrictions to suck money from consumers, and to force them to replace good efficient products with fashionable alternatives. This seems to benefit the bankers who own the manufacturing units and the resource mines, rather than the environment. For example there are massive restrictions on emissions from personal transport, but no restrictions on civil or military aviation. The burnt and unburnt fuel from air transport is pumped directly into the upper atmosphere, and there is no attempt to reduce any of the pollutants in the emissions. In fact some fuel still contains lead, which is banned in most transport fuels.

Solar energy will not save the planet at this point.

   The future of the planet is clear - it will die.
Solar energy may not safe our planet, but definitely may prolongate its life. Just like recycling and electric cars.
   Whatever made for saving the planet I'm voting for!

I think of this kind of topics more and more now. Have a quote stuck into my since since I was a kid which goes something like that: 'We haven't inherited the earth by our ancestors, we borrowed it from our children'.

My city isn't at all concerned about recycling so I separate my garbage, plastics, batteries etc. and look for a private companies to pass it on. I have a house outside of town as well and when I ran the numbers the wind turbine was better investment then solar panels. Although I guess it depends of the region too. If it is windier put the wind turbine, if it is sunnier then solar panels make more sense.

I don't think we can destroy the planet. Humans are adaptive and smart, yet so fragile. We need food, water, air, certain temperature. We could be wiped out in a blink of an eye. Maybe even more advanced civilizations were on this planet but when things go bad we will be gone first.
