Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

The good people of Woodland, NC, have rejected a solar farm on their town's grounds.

For good reasons! One: Do solar panels create cancer? “Nobody can say they don’t!” Well. I guess if you‘d ask doctors, they probably could, but local woman Jane Mann found nobody who could! Two: “All the young people are going to move out.” Because young people hate solar panels!!! Well known fact! Three: They might plan something! Yes. They! ”Until we can find if anything is going to damage this community, we shouldn’t sign any paper.” And - most important of all: It’s going to use up all the sun!!! “Solar farms would suck up all the energy from the sun and businesses would not come to Woodland.”

After all, sunlight, like wind, is a finite resource!


With all those well thought through and reasonable arguments, I don’t see how anyone could still build solar panels. Get me a nuclear power plant in my backyard and a fracked gas depot under my house any time!

Welcome to the 21st century. And welcome back from Paris.
