National Review - solar panels drain the sun's energy, experts say. Ermagerd!:
“Put into laymen’s terms, the solar panels capture the sun’s energy, but pull on the sun over time, forcing more energy to be released than the sun is actually producing,” WIT claims in a scientific white paper published on Wednesday. “Imagine a waterfall, dumping water. But you aren’t catching the water in buckets, but rather sucking it in with a vacuum cleaner. Eventually, you’re going to suck in so much water that you drain the river above that waterfall completely.”Suck on that, Brent Cook! With your "global warming" enviro conspiracy talk and all!
WIT is adamant that there’s no immediate danger, however. “Currently, solar panels are an energy niche, and do not pose a serious risk to the sun. But if we converted our grids to solar energy in a big way, with panels on domestic homes and commercial businesses, and paving our parking lots with panels, we’d start seeing very serious problems over time. If every home in the world had solar panels on their roofs, global temperatures would drop by as much as thirty degrees over twenty years, and the sun could die out within three hundred to four hundred years.”
Yeah no actually, this came from a joke site. There is no real "Wyoming Institute of Technology", though there is a website.
Right now, by the way, the website is claiming that an American Ebola epidemic is imminent.
(I haven't yet checked to see if the US Ebola epidemic story has made it to Zerohedge. Should I?)
Guess I should go buy me some gold. If the Ebola don't get me, the sun going out will defs be totes amazeballs for the gold price, no?
