McDonalds Solar Canopies: Is it Enough?


Apparently, McDonald’s is deploying a ton of solar PV in the form of canopies to protect their customers’ cars.  That’s good.  But I’m less sanguine on ridiculous statements like, “We continuously commit to reducing the environmental impact of our restaurants as much as possible….”

McDonald’s itself is an unmitigated disaster for the health of the environment, not to mention for the seven billion people who live in it.  We’re talking about a combination of:

1) deforestation to create cattle yards,

2) dependence on unsustainable farming methods, and

3) products that cause childhood obesity and diabetes.

Three strikes and you’re out.
