  • All modern technology including “renewable” energy depends on the non-renewable resources that make it possible
  • The only “renewable” materials consumed in PV production are obtained by deforestation – for wood chips,
    and by burning vast areas of tropical rainforest for charcoal used as a source of carbon for silicon smelters
  • Both media and journal claims that solar photovoltaic (PV) can somehow “replace fossil fuels” have not addressed
    the “non-renewable reality” of all the global manufacturing supply chains necessary for the mining, manufacturing,
    and distribution of PV power systems

  • By 2025, with power-hungry servers storing data from billions of smartphones, tablets and internet connected devices,
    some researchers predict that Information Communication Technlogies (ICT) could consume 20% of the entire
    world’s electricity hampering climate change targets and straining grids
  • Other analysts claim ICT could consume 51% of total global electricity and emit upto 23% of greenhouse gases by 2030
  • Smartphones’ CO2 emissions will grow from 4% of total global emissions in 2010 to 11% by 2020
  • Each smartphone includes over 1000 different substances each with its own supply chain

  • If you poison your water, you will die, If you poison the air, you will suffer
  • If you don’t learn that then you can only suffer.
