What are the uses of Tellurium?

Tellurium is used to make solar panels. We need solar panels because it is green energy. Scientists are saying things about global warming and natural gas running out.

It is also used to make lead stronger. We need leads to be strong because we use lead for pencils. We need pencils to write.
