More Delicious Irony

Apparently solar panels cause global warming. The weather gods have found yet another way to mock Al Gore.
".......a greenhouse gas emitted during the production of solar panels and HDTVs, nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) that is used for cleaning some parts of the gadgets, is about 17,000 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide."

The link to the wiki page on NF3 though says that it is typically broken down in the production process and therefore does not add much to total greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
