...SO this town in North Carolina is refusing to put up solar panels... One of the townspeople (a former science teacher) says solar panels may cause cancer, and another person warned they would suck up all of the sun's energy and plants would not be able to grow.

You can't make this stuff up. At first I thought I was reading an article from the Onion!

Woodland.

The main concerns of the folks* in town was declining property values due to HUGE solar panel farms in the area, since they're not very popular. The guy who was afraid the panels would suck up all the energy from the sun started off saying these panels would make the place less attractive, and like I-95 that bypasses the town, would contribute to the general running down of the town. His wife is the retired schoolteacher with the ridiculous unbelievable and incorrect fears about cancer. She also said these panels would stop photosynthesis.

It is so sad that there is such ignorance in the world. These people have real fears because their town is falling apart, or more accurately being passed by, but when they jump out the window with actually stupid claims, it's hard to be on their side.

Now let's move this to the other forum.

These are a group of inbred - idiotic hillbillies. Unbelievable. The panels would bring value to the shit land they are on, and benefit the townsfolk.

My lord.

Until all the science has been done dont you think it makes sense to be cautious? This planet cant survive without its sun so we need to wait on solar power until we know for sure that solar panels arent sucking it dry. The moon isnt bright or hot enough to keep the planet warm on its own.

Two teachers from North Carolina were talking, the first one said "We suck, our students placed 49th in math" the second teacher asks "Who was 40 tenth?"

Sad thing is how true it is.
