4,000 acres of solar panels were destroyed in one Texas hail storm. Locals are now worried about groundwater poisoning.

Here's the "green" tech they're telling us we need to adopt 100% by 2035 to avoid environmental catastrophe:

Yep. That was from a single storm.

The 4,000-acre solar farm called Fighting J's near [Needville, Texas] took a beating during hailstorms on March 16.

"My concern is the hail damage that came through and busted these panels we now have some highly toxic chemicals that could be potentially leaking into our water tables," said Kaminski

"There's numerous makeup in the chemicals on this thing," Fugua said. "The majority of them are cancer-causing."

Green energy boosters finding out that solar panels have cancer-causing chemicals in them:

It's true though! A sample of the toxic chemicals in those bad boys:

[A]dmium telluride, copper indium selenide, cadmium gallium (di)selenide, copper indium gallium (di)selenide, hexafluoroethane, lead, and polyvinyl fluoride.

Yep. And here's what those toxic-containing panels looked like after that hailstorm:

Hoo boy.

The concerns about groundwater are not without data to back them up. The toxic chemicals used in panel production have leaked into the water supply before. In 2022, Popular Science reported on 4 solar farms that violated the Clean Water Act. In 2021, journalist Michael Shellenberger wrote an article for Forbes where he warned that solar panels produce 300 times more toxic waste than nuclear fuel. While the International Energy Agency reported that heavy-metal leeching into groundwater is below the level of concern per World Health Organization guidelines, one has to wonder how that changes when the toxic parts are shattered and broken over 4,000 acres!

There's a reason the massive dumps filled with electronics near the coast of Africa are polluted wastelands.

The potential for catastrophe in this case in Texas is, to put it mildly, very big:

"I have a family two children and a wife," he said. "My neighbors have kids and a lot of other residents in the area who are on well water are concerned that the chemicals are now leaking into our water tables."

"We've got livestock that have to drink it. We have to bath, drink, all that good stuff," said Fugua. "It's a big concern."

So are the water and ground contaminated after the disaster? Well:

Test results on the soil and water are pending.

Good luck, Needville.
