Because whatever your convictions on the subject -- whether you believe them to be pure bunk, science fact or science fiction -- they are a fixture of pop culture and popular culture often provides the spark for flights of imagination and future innovation in technology, not to mention future careers in engineering and science. And besides, speculation is fun. Why don't people claim to see these things near renewable energy facilities? And, if they do, why isn't ther...
