Town Bans Solar Panels For “Sucking Up All The Energy Of The Sun”

Solar panels are a great step in renewable energy. They are constantly being upgraded, from absorbing new areas of the light spectrum to being made see-through. Companies and governments are understanding their importance and role they could play in renewable energy, France has even made it a legal requirement to use them if your building a new office. MIT recently said that solar panels could power the planet’s energy requirements alone, and with the steps they are making that means fewer panels for the same amount of energy, doing away with things like nuclear or coal stations. The reason we don’t see more solar panels? Fear and recently Woodland, North Carolina, proved this by voting to not only stop development on a solar farm but also to ban all future solar farms.

Woodland Town Council recently voted to stop a rezoning application that would have allowed the development of a solar farm. Retired science Teacher Jane Mann told Roanoke-Chowan News Herald that she had witnessed plants around the solar panels going brown and dying because they didn’t get enough solar energy. She went on to question the number of cancer deaths in the area saying no one could tell that solar panels didn’t cause cancer.

Bobby Mann, a local, stated that he had watched communities dry up when the I-95 was built and that solar panels would do the same to Woodland. He continued to say that solar farms would “suck up all the energy from the sun”.

The development of a newly renamed “solar vacuums” are on hold as we wonder what education and scientific principle were used to ban solar farms, while not perfect they are environmentally friendly and to go so far as voting on a moratorium on future solar farms with these “facts”, we hope they rethink the issue through soon.

Do you have solar panels? How have you found them? Do you like the idea of a solar farm outside your local area to help power the community or are you afraid of the effects the new technology may have?

    And this is why you should have to pass an I.Q. test before being allowed to breed.

    Was this a repost from The Onion? Or is it the “Deliverance” factor?

    There is a glaring typo in the story. “Retired science Teacher Jane Mann” You misspelled “Retarded”. Fortunately I fixed it for you, so you won’t have to issue any fake apologies. I wonder how much the koch brothers paid her. Maybe they gave her a shiny new house with plenty of windows to lick.

    Solar farms are horrible for the enviroment, it has been proven time and time again even by treehuggers. The government wants solar for some reason, and it makes no sense. Go around a solar farm, you’ll encounter dead animals left and right. The process for mining and refining REM’s are worse for the environment in the long run than drilling an oil well, and using diesel and gasoline.

    Only in America would such retarded bullshit be taken seriously but then they are descended from religious nutjobs we booted out of england centuries back lol

    stopped by a SCIENCE teacher…… wow glad I was not taught by her , If I had been I would probably would not be typing this because of death rays from the internet …

      Science is a word in some parts south of the MD line that does not mean what you think it means !

    At last limits of human iq have been can go as high as Einstein’s iq and as low as the iq of science Teacher Jane Mann
