The reality is that the energy comes from the sun, batteries are a  
storage mechanism

Yes they are as that is what charges them

I'll give it ago and disconnect my solar panels from the batteries and  
see how long this chemical reaction lasts, actually I know it will be 5  
days. Than I will recharge them from the sun.

If you want to play that game, hydroelectric power is only a
storage mechanism for solar energy.  Wind energy is only a
storage machanism for solar energy.    Burning anything (wood,
coal, oil, natural gas, ethanol, whatever) is only a storage
mechanism for solar energy. From science's explanation of how
suns and planets are formed, even nuclear energy is only a
storage mechanism for solar energy.

Any source of electricity will charge batteries.  I charge the
batteries in my wireless computer mouse by plugging the mouse
into a USB port, which draws power from my computer which is
plugged into an outlet that receives power from my friendly
regional electric utility, which gets its electricity from
who knows where.  Battery power is not solar power no matter
how much you want to rationalize it.>

During those five days you will get your electricity from a
chemical reaction, not from the sun.

Or you could recharge your batteries from a gas-powered generator,
or you could hook up a car generator to a windmill and use the wind
to charge your batteries, or connect that generator to a stationary
bicycle and pedal away until your batteries are charged.  However
you charge your batteries, when you draw power from those batteries
it is not solar power, it is chemical energy.

Of course solar is the source of power for the batteries. Thanks for a  
new but inane argument

A chemical reaction that got it's power from being recharged by the sun

Are wind power is an excellent renewable energy source

My emergency radio works like that

If you're happy with that inanity so be it

If you can talk science you'll know all about the GHG properties of  
certain molecules, I'm sure you've kept up with the science as it's been  
known since the 1800s. You'll also understand that these molecules don't  
change their properties from the lab to the atmosphere.
I'll do my bit while at the same time saving money and ensuring  
reliability esp during bush-fires and other natural disasters.
