It's happening again! The international community is pledging an end to burning fossil fuel, while the residents of Holbrook, in their infinite wisdom, are opposing a plan to build a solar energy farm ["Not sold on solar," News, June 9].

One of the residents' concerns is electromagnetic waves. This reminds me of the arguments against cell towers, that they would cause brain cancer and other such maladies.

Wake up, people! If you want cheaper energy, we all have to make a commitment!
