Solar Panels Drain the Sun’s Energy, Experts Say

<National Report>This week, a scientific research facility in Wyoming made a startling discovery that is certain to change the way millions of Americans look at the environmentalism movement, after they found conclusive evidence that solar panels not only convert the sun’s energy into usable energy, but that they are also draining the sun of its own energy, possibly with catastrophic consequences far worse than global warming.

Scientists at the Wyoming Institute of Technology, a privately-owned think tank located in Cheyenne, Wyoming, discovered that energy radiated from the sun isn’t merely captured in solar panels, but that energy is directly physically drawn from the sun by those panels, in a process they refer to as “forced photovoltaic drainage.”

“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.”

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.”

The study was commissioned in August 2011 by the Halliburton corporation, who wanted to learn if the energy giant should start manufacturing and selling solar panels domestically and internationally.  Halliburton’s executives wanted to know more about the sustainability of solar energy and how photovoltaic technology might evolve over the next ten years.  But based on the findings of WIT’s research in the field, Halliburton revealed on Friday that they will not be entering the solar energy market.

“Solar panels destroying the sun could potentially be the worst man-made climate disaster in the history of the world, and Halliburton will not be taking part in that,” the company stated in a press release issued Friday morning.  “It’s obvious, based on the findings of this neutral scientific research group, that humans needs to become more dependent on fossil fuels like oil and coal, not less.  Because these so-called `green technologies’ are far more dangerous to the Earth than any hydrofracking operation or deep-water drilling station.  What good is clean air when our very sun is no longer functional?”

    this is just some trash talk from those people earning insane money from fossil fuels and are afraid that one day nobody’s gonna use their shit anymore coz of new alternatives same as these renewable energy resources.

  2. Jessica H. says:

    I’m sure that their decision to not get into solar panels has NOTHING to do with the fact that it would cannibalize the sector of their business that deals with drilling and oil. Calling BS on this “study”.

    Dear Matt Rock. Next time you feel the urge to write an article even remotely related to science, please take a deep breath, count from 1 to 10 then choose another subject. Or ask a friend who likes science about his opinion. Or ask Google.
    As an example: please read about the Kardashev scale. According to this scale, a civilization able to harness ALL the energy of a star (like our sun is) is a Type II civilization. Humanity is still a Type 0 (zero). Wikipedia has a very nice and detailed article about that scale.

    If my answer contains any spelling errors, please excuse me. I have answered from my phone.

      By now, you will have realized that the article is satirical, as have many of the other 1800 or so comments.

      I have a problem with the definition of a Type II civilization. If they harnessed ALL their star’s energy, there wouldn’t be any left over for light and heat.

      Unless, of course, some of that harnessing goes into light and heat.

      • Cosmin N. says:

        Yes, I did realize. Well, a bit too subtle for my style :)
        About the Type II civ, the classification doesn’t say they do harness a star’s energy, just that they are able. That is, they have the technology and resources. Most likely if they have that kind of technology, they surely have mastered fusion and other energy resources.
        And by then purchasing a safe portable nuclear reactor would be like buying batteries for the remote control today :)

    I am sure if everybody look at the sun in the same moment we could shut off the sun! lol…

  5. Hello,I come to your blog for the first time and information about Solar Panels Drain the Sun’s Energy its realli intersing .

    Shame on you for publishing such rubbish. Being on the teet of big oil has made you a mindless slave. I renounce your nonsense and encourage any and all reading this to use critical thinking and common sense. The whole thing reek of snake oil.

    There are lots of bright sparks at Wit and quite a few among the wits posting to this blog. On the same basis, I’m wondering if WIT have examined the effects of ranks of vacuum cleaners on hurricanes and typhoons. Could be something in that.

      Scotti:
      Excellent thought, but it doesn’t have to be a vacuum cleaner. Any adequately large fan and ducting system would work. However, the intake should be adequately far away from the discharge. An elbow would be required to vent the fan vertically. When a tornado passed over the discharge elbow, the blast of air would satisfy the vacuum within the tornado funnel, collapsing the vacuum, and thereby killing the tornado. Oklahoma has a lot of problems with Tornados in Tornado Alley. The State of Oklahoma could erect an array of such “Tornado Killers” perpendicular to Tornado Alley, on the State Line, preventing Tornados from entering the state. Failsafe sensors could be set up say 1 minute upstream of the Tornado Killers, and when they got ripped out of the ground by a tornado, this would start up the three fans (the one whose sensors got ripped out, and one on each side of it, in case the tornado veered a bit off course) and allow them to get up to speed by the time the tornado arrived. This is necessary to minimize power costs. There is no point on turning on the fans unless they are needed to kill a tornado. Considering that the people of Oklahoma have suffered tremendous loss in the past, I hereby assign all Patent Rights to the State of Oklahoma. The Tornado Killer array could be financed by the insurance premiums that the Oklahoma Residents didn’t have to pay in the future.
      Best wishes to the People of Oklahoma!!
