I bet Sanders'll go fight Chewbacca.
That's why I'm voting for him.

Solar power, devalues homes, drives off young people, stops photosynthesis, and causes cancer. Choose clean coal for a better future!

Quote:

Mary Hobbs has been living in Woodland for 50 years and said she has watched it slowly becoming a ghost town with no job opportunities for young people.

She said her home is surrounded by solar farms and is no longer worth its value because of those facilities.


Quote:

Jane Mann said she is a local native and is concerned about the plants that make the community beautiful.

She is a retired Northampton science teacher and is concerned that photosynthesis, which depends upon sunlight, would not happen and would keep the plants from growing. She said she has observed areas near solar panels where the 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 that solar panels didn’t cause cancer.


Quote:

Bobby Mann said he watched communities dry up when I-95 came along and warned that would happen to Woodland because of the solar farms.

“You’re killing your town,” he said. “All the young people are going to move out.”

He said the solar farms would suck up all the energy from the sun and businesses would not come to Woodland.

Although I am appalled that a science teacher would make a statement like that... not exactly how it all works.

Dumb yokels will say anything for that promise of a fat check that makes them not have to yokel any more.

I swear the whole 30 Rock "Tracy must constantly act insane in order to maintain media attention/his persona" thing is barely satire.
