There are some rrrrealy bright people out there

A town has rejected solar panels for some, er, unusual reasons.
Here is a part of it:

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.

Unfortunately we live in a world that is becoming too complex for a larger proportion of the population. While we look at this and think they are stupid, the general understanding of a lot of things is frightening. Even economists are having a hard time grasping how economies work. I think most people don't have a clue about how effective technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are.
