I usually don't do Earth sciences as for the most part they are not my forte so to speak. But sometime not saying anything is paramount to agreeing or supporting crackpot ideas. For example....
A recent town meeting in Woodland North Carolina heard comments on a proposed solar energy plant.
What was surprising was the number of people who spoke out against the solar farm including a retired science teacher named Jane Mann. One of Mz Mann's concerns was that the array would suck up all the sun energy leaving none for the plants to conduct photosynthesis. Also she was concerned about the jump in cancer deaths in the area, might be attributed to the solar power plant.
Bobby Mann also agreed but went on to say that with the solar farm sucking up all the energy, new businesses would be disinclined to locate in Woodland. The array would kill the town and young people would then move away.
I am sorry, I don't even have to try, this stuff writes itself!
