When a photovoltaic cell collects energy from a Photon, is does not absorb the whole photon, it only increases it's wavelength and re-emits it; basically converting regular light into infrared light.

While the regular light bouncing of a simple white roof could leave the atmosphere, taking it's excess energy with it, the now infrared light gets trapped by the greenhouse effect, heating the atmosphere.

It's 'free' electricity for the owner, excess heat for everyone else.

Or maybe have a relationship with Mexico as good as we used to have with Canada, and eliminate the threat of global terrorism; instead of trump's plan to stuff our ears with cotton, shove our head in the sand, pay the Mexicans to build a wall, and let Russian nibble it's way towards Europe/Arctic oil reserves?
