Town votes down solar-panel farm due to fears it would 'suck up the sun'
I thought it was a fake story til I checked snopes. How sad that some people could be so scientifically illiterate. Then again, that's the USA for you >_>

The article Wrote:Jane Mann, a retired science teacher, said she was concerned the panels would prevent plants in the area from photosynthesizing, stopping them from growing.

Ms Mann said she had seen areas near solar panels where plants are brown and dead because they did not get enough sunlight.

She also questioned the high number of cancer deaths in the area, saying no one could tell her solar panels didn't cause cancer.

I'm sure as fuck glad she's retired. Facepalm

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

As long as you leave the solar panels open during the night too the sun has a chance to get back out.

But you never really know. A little bit of it might get caught, and ya know .... it all adds up. And then one day .... "Where did the sun go ?"

Those people are right. They are too stupid to be around electricity of any kind. They should be kicked off the grid.

Let them live like the Amish.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

The problem with underestimating idiots is that idiots will continually surprise you with the previously unknown depths that stupid can reach.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

It would be funny, unless you've dated a man who thought windmills were solar powered. Drinking Beverage
