This can not be true

Today at the Environmental Republican Scott has a story coming out of California that is so ridiculous, it can’t be true. Here is the actual story so I found it and it appears truer than true.

But is it possible?????

Here is just the headline:

Sunnyvale homeowners told to cut redwoods that block solar panels
LAW: TREES BLOCKING NEIGHBOR’S SOLAR PANELS MUST BE CUT

then:

they were in violation of California’s Solar Shade Control Act and that if they didn’t “abate the violation” within 30 days, they would face fines of up to $1,000 a day.
Obscure law
The law, signed by former Gov. Jerry Brown in 1978, is rarely used. But county prosecutors say Treanor and Bissett are breaking it.

Ps the homeowner wanting the trees cut down moved in after they were planted.
