A Town Rejects Solar Power Because They’re Afraid It’ll Take All the Sunlight
A town in North Carolina called Woodland just rejected a proposal to rezone some area for a solar power farm. And the reason some of the people were against it was, they’re afraid it would suck up all the light from the sun. A woman named Janet Mann spoke at the city council meeting, and said solar panels would steal all the sunlight from the plants, so they’d go brown and die. Oh, and she used to be a science teacher. Her husband Bobby also said the solar panels would suck up all the energy from the sun, and that would keep businesses from coming to town. Obviously it doesn’t work that way. There’s an unlimited amount of sun to go around, even if all of us had solar panels. But other people were suspicious of the solar farm too, and some of them thought it would discourage people from moving to the town, although it’s not clear why. So the city council eventually gave in and voted it down. Get more here.
