15. Perhaps not much economic Payback on the White House But the symbolic payback would have been HUGE!

It would have perhaps stimulated more investment into this at a time that we could have really limited a lot of the harmful effects that global warming have wrought since then.

And also note that when Bush took office he slashed the investment in solar and renewable energy programs by more than HALF (from $376 million to $186 million!). There's the cost of "oil men" in the White House! The SLIME! This was done at a time even when California was having its energy crisis!
