The town of Woodland, North Carolina is in the spotlight this week after rejecting a proposal to rezone a section of land just outside its borders for the use of a solar farm.

I can understand criticism about "eyesore" (well - roads are an eyesore, too - but we've got used to those over time ... can't see anyone refusing road-building on that basis!!!) BUT .... the other comments?

And these are elected decision-makers?

I find it hard to believe some of the ignorance coming from the mouths of some of the "leaders" in the US today! If these were illiterate village chiefs somewhere in a third world country, one could understand how they don't (yet) know better, but .... solar panels will suck up the sun's energy???? Pyramids were built as granaries ???? From (presumably) educated decision-makers in the US ????

:>(

Thanks, Rebecca ... I even checked if it were a hoax!!!

This is possibly the dumbest thing i've ever heard--at least in a long time. It's so stupid that it's almost comical.

2nd crazy statement was made by a retired science teacher: also concerned that photosynthesis would slow due to the solar panels, stopping the plants from growing in the solar farm fields.

That town has some nutty people.
Thanks Rebecca

Idiots. Unfortunately this isn't the only town run by the escaped inmates of an asylum. Thanx Rebecca.
