How green is solar energy really?

More and more solar panels are popping up all over the world – and it’s easy to see why: They provide clean energy at falling prices. Awesome, right? Well actually, there are also some not-so-green sides to this technology. We’ll take a closer look at three big criticisms solar energy faces and check out just how much of a problem they are.

We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.
