When Environmentalists Collide

From Thursday's San Jose Mercury News, Sunnyvale Homeowners Told To Cut Redwoods That Block Solar Panels:

In a case with statewide significance, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office is pursuing a Sunnyvale couple under a little-known California law because redwood trees in their backyard cast a shadow over their neighbor's solar panels.

So it appears that California law states that if you put up solar panels in the shade of your neighbor's tree, your neighbor has to cut down the tree or pay a $1000.00 per day fine.  Wow, that's insane.
