When is Obama gonna put the solar panels on the White House?

LIKE HE SAID


Reagan is dead and gone
do what President Carter did.



At least show some what we can do
in the people's house.

1. When Hell freezes over

Not a postpartisan move - Fox and Rush would say mean things.

7. I know the White House is Off the Grid

in more ways than one, due to national security.

Put it could be a show case to the populous
on alternative energy even in its apparent
needs and hypocrisy.

It still could be a show case on what is available, working, saving , with the latest American technology and innovation.

It is the people's house .

5. Never.

He would be too criticized for it and maybe there is a security concern with having outside workers coming in and out of the White House. He is being threatened more than any recent President just because of the color of his skin.

6. They spent millions on some kind of underground bunker

I guess for the people's house security.

LOOK IT UP if you don't believe me.

Make that house as an example on alternative energy..... It costs so little
and the nation needs to set examples.

8. I don't particularly care

Symbolism doesn't work when everyone is aware it's just symbolism.

14. Maybe

But I think most people are aware of the need to develop alt energy in the abstract. People don't get climate change because human brain isn't wired for long term thinking. Don't know how to fix this.

10. Solar panels would be nice, but I actually think this is nicer:



You still have to be fairly well off to afford solar panels, but the White House Kitchen Garden is something really good that most people can do, on whatever scale space allows. How many other first ladies have harvested sweet potatoes at the WH?

13. Why don't we start an email campaign to get Mr. Obama to put up solar Panels?

Both PV and heating!
