    Did they actually check her credentials or just take her word for it?

    The original story is just click bait. On another board, someone posted the entire story.

    Two people in town complained (one was the ex-teacher) but the reason the town rejected the solar farm was because three other solar farms were in the process of being built and the town was upset that they would not benefit economically from any of these solar farms. There were also claims (true or not) that the solar farms were lowering the property values in the area. The decision was 100% economically based and had nothing to do with what the ex-teacher said.

    Where is the link?

    On another board, someone posted the real story. It was muslims trying to setup a jihadi solar facility to harness the power of Allah but the NRA came in and pointed guns at everyone in the town, until the town voted against it.

    I saw the original story, but, missed the SCIENCE teacher part. Good catch.

    She is retired. She could also be suffering from any number of illnesses that are affecting her grasp of the basics. It happens.

    Although as described it sounds more like unfamiliarity than anything else. The town may not benefit much from local agribusiness either (not much of a local payroll anymore), but, they are familiar with it. Counties and small towns can be starved for tax revenue these days even if a lot of economic value is taking place-- the revenue may be booked elsewhere.

    You forgot the part where the solar facility was going to power a new abortion on demand clinic.
