Solar Farm Rejected Amid Fears It Will ‘Suck Up The Sun’s Energy’

Yes, you read that correctly. North Carolina! I would have guessed West Virginia or Arkansas, but NC seems right. 

A town council in North Carolina rejected plans to rezone land for a solar farm after residents voiced fears it would cause cancer, stop plants from growing and suck up all the energy from the sun.

Two citizens reportedly made the allegations at a Woodland Town Council meeting in Northampton County, northeastern North Carolina, on Wednesday.

Bobby Mann said the farm would “suck up all the energy from the sun and businesses would not come to Woodland,” the Roanoke-Chowan Herald-News reports.

Bobby Mann. Really? Do you suppose Bobby denies global warming? Do you imagine that Bobby thinks President Obama is a Muslim? Would you be surprised if you learned that Bobby believes the Earth is 6,000 years old?

I don’t know Bobby, but I suspect that my guesses are correct. Oh, I also think he shows up regularly at the voting booth each election cycle.
