Glass is a wonderful product. Float glass for windows (along with screens)
improves homes and other buildings enormously.
Think about what your home would be without glass. So this is not an essay against glass. It isn’t even an essay against using glass
for solar energy collecting devices whether they are for heating hot air, hot
water or making electricity.
These devices use low iron hardened stippled glass. It is important to understand the components of the energy collecting devices so we don’t designate them with false labels
such as green, renewable or sustainable. This essay looks at the energy, equipment and the economies of scale in
making float glass.
This is an essay challenging business as usual. The earth and those born today can’t take anymore business as usual. Unfortunately, I am not allowed as a new user to link to an essay show in video, charts, pictures and essay just what is involved in making float glass.
