Solving Africa’s Energy Poverty – Part 3 Solar Power

Why SOLAR Power is a poor choice for developing countries

The main practical problem with solar panels is that they produce power intermittently and variably depending on the latitude, the time of day, the season, and weather events such as clouds, rain, and windblown dust that block sunlight. Another factor that affects output of solar panels is heat, which further reduces output and lifetime. That is why most rooftop solar panels are mounted on supports above the roof surface. In hotter climates, it may be necessary to provide cooling water to maintain efficiency, all of which reduces photovoltaic efficacy. They do not provide power at night and so there must be a reliable backup power source such as banks of batteries. Present battery technology is not feasible for this purpose except for single home systems, so thermal and hydroelectric energy must be used.

Solar panels are inefficient by their nature. Single junction panels are based on high-tech silicon wafers and the more efficient multi junction types require silicon wafers layered with exotic metals such as gallium, indium, phosphorus, gallium arsenide, and germanium to broaden their power spectrum and enhance output. The sun provides roughly 1 kW power per square meter at vertical and solar panels or mirrors provide only a fraction of that. Typical efficiency of solar photovoltaic cells is from typically 15 percent up to a possible 30 percent.

Peak output occurs only when the panel is pointed directly at the sun so computer-driven tracking mechanisms would be needed to maintain peak power throughout each day. At higher latitudes, the sun is never directly overhead, so the sun would be at an angle from the vertical and power would be reduced by the greater depth of the atmosphere even with compensating angled support. This varies with season by up to 23.5 degrees above and below the equatorial plane because of the tilt of the earth’s axis. So in winter, the angle could be 47 degrees or more from vertical, depending on the latitude. Even near the equator, only near the equinox will the sun be directly overhead at noon and could be as much as 23.5 from the vertical. Many solar arrays use fixed panels so that they operate outside peak performance most of the time.

All of these factors will reduce average output considerably. Maintenance teams are needed to maintain the tracking mechanisms and water cooling circulation systems, as well as for regular cleaning of the panels.

The next hurdle is the lifetime of the solar panel. Efficiency decreases with age and typical solar panels will last only twenty years with typically 1 percent loss in efficiency per year. Then you have to factor in how much energy is expended in manufacturing, installing, and maintaining units. This can be a significant percentage of the typical output over time. It will usually take about a year to recoup the energy balance. With short lifetimes, high-tech materials, low efficiency, intermittency, and maintenance requirements, it is clear that solar power through photovoltaic panels is totally unsustainable. Never mind that the power source, the sun, provides renewable power, the panel itself makes this method totally unsustainable.

Solar power using mirrors is a bit more reliable since it eliminates exotic materials and high-tech manufacturing. However, it has most of the same limitations as Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. These limitations include no night power production as well as weather, and latitude reductions in efficiency. Some now use molten salt as a heat reservoir to supply supplemental power at night. Maintenance teams are needed to keep the mirrors free from dust. A major problem with mirror systems is that many mirrors must surround and be aimed at a central steam generator to produce the kind of heat needed to produce the steam for a turbine. The heat from these systems can kill birds in flight, and the glare can blind airline pilots.

Both types of solar arrays require a large expanse of land to produce a reasonable amount of power. This necessarily disrupts the environment. Rooftops of warehouses, where available, can be used for PV panels, but the mirror arrays cannot because they must be aimed at a central tower containing a generator at the top. Fires on rooftop PV arrays are all too common from breakthrough shorts and wiring issues.

From this, it seems all too obvious that solar power is inadequate even for home use in poor countries and can only be a temporary “Band-Aid” to assuage the consciences for feel-good well-heeled environmentalists in Western countries. Climate agreements envision solar panels on huts, not reliable, long term power as provided by fossil fuel, hydroelectric, geothermal or nuclear power grids. International organizations invest only in wind and solar while discouraging or prohibiting these more reliable power sources that could support infrastructure development, industrial investment, hospitals, schools, provide jobs that can raise the economy and improve health and longevity.

 

Solving Africa’s Energy Poverty, Part 2

Why Wind Power is a poor choice for developing countries
Wind turbines share pastures with native herdsmen

In an energy starved developing country an all-of-the-above approach is best, combining fossil fuel, hydroelectric, geothermal, and nuclear, where available, and possibly supplemented by wind and solar “renewable” and “sustainable” methods which are recommended and allowed by environmentalists, but which are the worst possible alternatives.

Wind power relies on huge wind turbines on towers to generate electricity in a narrow range of wind speeds.  The amount of power generated is both unpredictable and intermittent because wind is not constant and wind speed unpredictably varies widely from none to gale-force levels that would damage the system if not switched off. Another power source must be available to supply backup power. Fossil fuel power plants require hours to start up due to the time required to heat water to steam. Such a process is both time consuming and expensive. Therefore, they must be kept at the ready constantly to provide backup power more quickly. Wind power, at best, can be only a supplemental source. Here are a few other negative facts:

  • Wind turbines require expensive regular maintenance and replacement, and their efficiency declines with age. Estimated to last twenty to twenty-five years, more typically they require frequent repair over ten to fifteen years of life.
  • Most wind turbines require large rare earth magnets (neodymium and dysprosium) obtained from Mongolia by a mining and refining process that results in mountains of toxic and radioactive solid wastes and contaminated lakes. The rare earth elements are called that because they are not found in rich veins like other ores, but are diffusely dispersed, so they produce huge amounts of wastes, including radioactive elements such as uranium and thorium, when refined. Since neodymium/dysprosium magnets are ten times stronger than conventional magnets, they are needed to convert the slow rotation of the rotor into useful electricity; otherwise complex gears would be needed to achieve the 1500 RPM generation speeds necessary with conventional magnets. Rare earth metals are used in small amounts in catalytic converters, display screens, audio speakers and miniaturized electronics, but the amounts are tiny compared to the hundreds or thousands of pounds needed for a single turbine.
  • Wind turbines kill large numbers of birds and bats, including endangered raptors. Birds and bats are needed to reduce populations of insects such as mosquitoes. Insect eating species of bats can eat one thousand insects an hour, or five to six thousand each night. While the environmental activists claim to be protecting wildlife, they don’t seem to be concerned about wind turbines killing bats and birds, especially large predators.
  • Wind turbines produce low frequency sound, including infrasound that our ears cannot detect. However, infrasound can cause unsettling and harmful physical symptoms such as “nausea and confusion, blurred vision, vertigo, headaches, tachycardia, heightened blood pressure, pain and ringing in the ears, difficulties with memory and concentration, anxiety, depression, irritability, and panic attacks.”[1] If the sound of wind turbines does that to us, what is it doing to animals, especially those that use infrasound like elephants and whales? More research is needed.

Solving Africa’s Energy Poverty Problem, Part 1

Gathering wood for cooking in Africa

Based on an assumed need to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2), climate change advocates and international agreements generally provide investment funding and technical support only for so-called sustainable renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, both of which are unreliable, intermittent, and unsustainable, while they discourage or prohibit development of power plants based on abundant fossil fuel (coal, oil, and natural gas), hydroelectric, geothermal, or nuclear energy. It is well documented that environmentalists have stopped or prevented the construction of more than two hundred hydroelectric dams in Africa[1], although it is the cleanest, most reliable and safest energy source available, and uses conventional materials and proven technologies. Hydroelectric power is also “sustainable” over time and returns the water used to the environment. Power in the form of electricity, natural gas, and petroleum products are essential for economic development, industry, transportation and medical infrastructure as well as home cooking, heating and refrigeration, which are needed to provide a safe, clean food supply and to reduce deadly indoor air pollution from bio-fueled cooking and heating fires.

Without adequate power, the continent’s health and economy cannot improve as it should. The answer to Africa’s energy poverty is an all-of-the-above solution. Environmentalists from developed countries and international governmental and non-governmental organizations have no business denying African nations the chance to better their citizens through the same means that developed countries used in the past to raise themselves out of energy poverty for their own development. (They have an “I got mine, to hell with you” attitude.) Coal, oil, and natural gas electricity generation must be allowed to continue and grow for the foreseeable future until other means such as hydroelectric, geothermal and nuclear facilities can be built.

Africa can’t afford the luxury of skipping these vital steps toward ending energy poverty in order to adopt unreliable solar and wind alone. It would be like giving a dying man an aspirin and expecting him to survive.

Today’s coal fired power plants with modern air cleaning technology are not the dirty, polluting monsters they once were, even though they are still portrayed that way. In developed countries, technology to remove particulates, heavy metals, and sulfates have long been utilized. Emissions consist mostly of carbon dioxide and water vapor. Modern power plants use coal, oil, or natural gas to heat water for steam to turn turbines attached to electrical generators. This steam and hot water are not released directly into streams but are cooled to condense the steam and reduce the water temperature to a level compatible with life in the streams. Some of the hot water is recycled to efficiently produce more steam for power generation. The huge towers seen at power plants are not emitting pollution as environmentalist propaganda suggests. They are cooling towers that are used to cool the water and steam before returning it to its source so that only water vapor is emitted. Similar air cleaning and cooling facilities can be added to any existing power plant in developing countries.

Overpopulation Myth, Environmentalism and Communist Control

The Roots of Environmentalism and Population Control

The roots of modern environmentalism and its link to the population control and eugenics movements go back to the eighteenth century and the overpopulation myth, which was all about limiting the human population to prevent a predicted “Malthusian Catastrophe,” i.e. predicted mass starvation when population would surpass the ability of the land to produce enough food, and eugenics to promote genetic purity, especially control of supposedly genetically inferior groups, for example certain races, cultures, and the chronically poor or ill. These beliefs are supported by the progressive belief in materialism—there is no spiritual side, only the material we can see and touch, and humanism—man is the measure of everything and determines morals to suit his circumstances so that there are no absolute moral principles. From these eighteenth century progressive philosophies grew socialism, Communism, fascism, evolutionary racism, the eugenics movement, the population control movement, and environmentalism; all of them are about controlling the masses by an elite few, and all are basically anti-human, anti-development, and anti-freedom.

Today more enlightened geneticists and the public in general (but apparently not by powerful population control supporters) have rejected the eugenics argument that certain races, cultures, and the poor are genetically inferior. Claims of eminent mass starvation from overpopulation made by population control alarmists have been refuted by vastly improved food production rates and capacities. Unwilling to abandon their aim of reducing population, environmentalism, with its daughter Climate Change, is the latest cause celebre to cover brutal inhumanity to man in the form of forced or coerced population control and denial of vital infrastructure to the poorest countries.

Climate change campaigns have an added benefit for environmentalists because it imposes guilt and fear, not just on the poor but on prosperous people in developed nations as the cause of the supposed problem. As usual for progressives, they wrongly assume that the size of the proverbial economic pie is fixed so that prosperous nations are falsely blamed for the poverty of less developed ones. Developed nations are also presented as the major cause of pollution and warming. This fits in with the communist and socialist, so-called progressive, goals to regress all human progress, defeat Western free market economies and maintain control by an elite few “experts.”

Saving Africa from Lies that Kill – new book coming in October 2018

SAVING AFRICA FROM LIES THAT KILL: HOW MYTHS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND OVERPOPULATION ARE DESTROYING THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES

My new book reveals the abuses of developing countries by international organizations, based on the overpopulation myth and false assumptions about genetic inferiority and environmental damage.  Learn how you can help to end these practices and bring these cultures into the twenty-first century.

 

New book to be published in October, 2018

Back cover:  In Saving Africa From Lies That Kill, Kay Kiser exposes the long-standing crimes committed against developing nations by the United Nations, World Bank, USAID and Planned Parenthood. Under their guise of “aid,” these organizations mire the underprivileged in isolation, poverty, sickness and ignorance.

In her book, Kiser argues:

    • Poverty, not overpopulation, causes environmental damage.  Higher standards of living and lower infant mortality can improve the environment and stabilize the population.

    • Developing nations need access to reliable electricity in order to end energy poverty. This will, in turn, provide clean water, develop transportation, and power hospitals, homes and industrial investment.

    • Africans aren’t lazy; they’re weakened from malaria, parasites and dysentery. They need insect and disease control for a healthy workforce.

    • The Green Revolution and modern agriculture can feed everyone and end deforestation.

ANTHROPOGENIC “climate change” and the control of carbon dioxide, via the supply of energy, has deep roots in a radical yet gravely misguided campaign to reduce the world’s population.

THE goal was advanced, most notably, by The Club Of Rome (Environmental think-tank and consultants to the UN) – a group of mainly European scientists and academics, who used computer modelling to warn that the world would run out of finite resources if population growth were left unchecked.

Killing Africa – Evil in the name of Good

 

Countries by poverty rate – World Bank, Peter Lonjers
Evil in the name of Good

In my new book I will use Africa as the “poster child” to illustrate the evil that is being continued against the developing world in the name of good. The modern Environmental movement, including Climate Change, is closely associated with and grew out of the overpopulation myth started in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the Population Control and Eugenics movements of the 20th century. Climate Change is just the latest face of Socialist/ Communist philosophy using fear, guilt and shame to control people, and not only keep poor nations poor, but ultimately to bring down Western civilization and its successful free market economic system.

Their agenda is based on an anti-human, anti-freedom, anti-progress de-growth philosophy. They are actually pushing a return to a simpler romanticized life, complete with subsistence farming and shorter lifespans as a way to “save the planet.”  Never mind that the romanticized “good old days” never existed, but were actually brutal and cruel.  How would you like using an unheated outdoor toilet complete with spiders and snakes, chopping wood for heat, carrying water every day from a spring or well, heating water for baths and cooking on a wood burning cook stove in both summer heat and winter cold, scrubbing your clothes on a washboard and hanging them on a clothesline even in freezing weather? I’ve done it and it’s no fun.

Even this is a cut above the life in poor nations where many don’t even have stoves, washtubs, wells and proper toilets, much less electric lights.  This brutal and harsh life is about where the early American settlers were, and it was continued in some isolated areas into the middle of the 20th century.  Life was a daily struggle just to live and feed their families.  Lifespans were short and disease was rampant.  In the 1980s when wood stoves were all the rage, my friends couldn’t understand why I didn’t want one.  I had enough of chopping and carrying in wood and carrying out messy ashes when I had no choice. It might have been an adventure when I was young, but give me modern conveniences any day.

While agenda driven proponents of Environmentalism and its daughter Climate Change, aka Global Warming, claim that Western civilization is to blame (for whatever the cause du jour is), it is actually the most environmentally responsible system in the world. It is also the most generous and the most capable of helping the poor. Because we have the means and the incentive, we are able to care for the environment better, clean the water and the air and protect wildlife and habitats. People in under-developed countries who struggle just to feed their families are the least environmentally responsible by necessity. The romanticized “Noble Savage” never existed.  They do whatever is necessary to survive.  Their homes are drafty and cold or sweltering hot with indoor air pollution from bio-based cooking fires, vermin and disease carrying insects, and poor sanitation even for babies.  Many spend hours each day carrying water from streams, which often contain dangerous bacteria and parasites.

I thank God for:

  • Electricity that can provide light, heat, cooling, cooking, hot water for washing and news and weather reports to avoid immanent dangers; electricity also provides power for many of the items below.
  • Clean central heat and air conditioning, which have saved countless babies, the elderly and the infirm from heat exhaustion or heat stroke in summer and hypothermia in winter;
  • Refrigeration to keep food from spoiling and avoid food poisoning;
  • A clean cooking stove to avoid indoor air pollution and kill pathogens in food;
  • Purified water on tap to avoid water borne diseases, and flush toilets;
  • Plenty of safe, healthy foods for good nutrition and health;
  • A safe place to live for shelter from the weather without disease carrying vermin and insects;
  • Vehicles and good roads to provide access to medical facilities, jobs and markets;
  • Modern medicines, antibiotics and vaccines to cure or control diseases and prolong life;
  • Computers and cell phones for educational purposes and to contact help when needed.

Viva la technology that has kept me alive, comfortable and able to contribute to charities that help the down-trodden[1].  I only wish I could do more.  My upcoming book is dedicated to that aim: to raise awareness and prompt others to speak out against the tyranny that is holding poor countries down in the name of “saving the planet.” What hubris to think we could save the planet!  The planet doesn’t care about our puny efforts. It has always been out to kill us. Only our efforts, preferably including technology, keep us alive and well. Meanwhile, the earth, as a self-correcting system that acts in cycles, is just fine.

However, there is a tyranny against poor underdeveloped countries that cries out for readily available solutions. We should strive for that better world I described in my previous blog, Anti-Humanism – Disease, Starvation, Poverty, Sterilization, not just for developed countries, but for ALL.  It is possible. Poor countries are not hopeless, just helpless against forces aimed at keeping them controlled, primitive and poor.  We are within sight of solving these problems, but are being hindered by environmentalists and tyrannical, corrupt governments and international organizations that foster the myths of scarcity, overpopulation and hopelessness.

Then shall they answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto you?  Then shall he answer them, saying, Truly I say unto you, In as much as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not unto me.”  — Matthew 25:42-45

Anti-Humanism – Disease, Starvation, Poverty, Sterilization

Imagine living in a world where all nations and continents are fully developed, prosperous and healthy. Technological developments have been used to eliminate starvation and extreme poverty, and to improve health, and where stewardship of the environment is the norm.   Now imagine you have just discovered an island where none of these things are available.  Wouldn’t you be horrified and enraged that this situation is allowed to continue in a world of abundance?  Then you learn that the powerful would rather manage the situation than end it, and that they give environmental concerns as their reason for keeping the poor people in their disease-ridden, miserable squalor. Then you also learn that many wealthy nations want to keep it that way and actually block trade from poor nations rather than compete in the marketplace or help them grow their economy as a new market in which to sell their own goods. Wouldn’t your outrage and feelings of frustration and helplessness grow exponentially?

Well, that is the actual situation, as it exists today, especially in most areas of Africa, but also India, South America, the Middle East, China, Southeast Asia and Oceana. Because it has been going on for such a long time, we have come to accept it as the norm that can’t be changed.  If this was a new situation, we would want to mobilize to fix it.  There are many internal reasons for the on-going situation such as corrupt governments and primitive customs, but there are also outside forces that have insured that it is perpetuated “for the good of the environment.”  Through propaganda, these same forces have convinced most people in the developed world that it is an unsolvable problem. It is not. It is a deliberate scheme based on false assumptions and concerted efforts to control population in less developed countries.  It is environmental and economic colonialism, meant to suppress those least able to defend themselves in the name of “saving the planet.” When the poor are struggling just to stay alive, they are not capable of caring for the environment.  It would be better for the environment if we raised them out of poverty.

In my second book in the Modern Mythology Series, I use Africa as the “poster child” to illustrate the evil that is being continued in the name of good. The modern Environmental movement, including Climate Change, is closely associated with and grew out of the anti-human overpopulation myth started in the 18th century, and the Population Control and Eugenics movements of the 20th century. Climate Change is just the latest face of anti-human, de-growth and overpopulation myths that are used as a tool of the Socialist/ Communist philosophy.  They use fear, guilt and shame to control people and not only keep poor nations poor, but ultimately to bring down Western civilization and its successful free market economic system.


“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with  the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” (emphasis added)

— The Club of Rome

“My own doubts came when DDT was introduced for civilian use. In Guyana, within two years it had almost eliminated malaria, but at the same time the birth rate had doubled. So my chief quarrel with DDT in hindsight is that it has greatly added to the population problem.”

—Alexander King, cofounder of the Club of Rome, 1990
