The most secular, rational, environmentally conscious places in the US are in the North East states and the Pacific NW: rainy, overcast, cloudy, dark places. The Bible Belt has the sunniest weather of anywhere. The craziest place of all, Florida, well, that's 'The Sunshine State', 'nuff said.
Then think of all those loony Islamic theocracies, out there in the Sahara Desert, and you can only reach one conclusion: sunshine is bad for you.
Stay out of the sun, for god's sakes.
