14. I get the anger. But if we want green energy.

Hundreds of thousands of acres of land will need to be covered with solar panels. No getting around it.

Which ecosystem would you prefer being destroyed. Because green energy will not be environmentally neutral. We have to accept that fact.

Even if every home and office building is gathering solar energy we will still need huge swaths of solar farms. In my mind there is no worthless ecosystem. They all have value.

So something has to be ecologically taken out of the natural system. And ever area has its defenders.

I support green energy. But we must be honest about its cost.
