There’s been one little thing needed to complete the Obama/Carter comparison, and if it’s up to President Obama, that ingredient will be forever absent:

A quest to get Barack Obama to shout his commitment to solar power from the roof tops – by re-installing vintage solar panels at the White House – ended in disappointment for environmental campaigners today.

Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, had led a group of environmental activists to Washington in a bio-diesel van hoping to persuade Obama to re-install a set of solar panels originally put up by Jimmy Carter.

Obama’s refusal to re-install Jimmy Carter’s solar panels is merely one of practicality, because the sun simply doesn’t have enough energy to power Obama’s ego and teleprompters.

    A group of wizardly eco-smart folks just this spring brought on-line a 15 acre solar panel field (with gummint funding of course) reclaiming one of my small town`s several closed landfill sites to power 25 average sized homes. That works out to 1-2/3 acres and $2800. (ish) per year / house for several years, not incl. int. and other costs. The laws of deminishing returns were never mentioned……..

    Is the WH 25 times the size of an average sized house ? Is Obummer`s ego the size of NYC`s landfill ? Does TOTUS draw oodlings of power amusing us on a near-daily basis ? And just what did Mr Peanut`s solar panels power – Rosalind`s make-up mirror? – the whole bathroom ? Hhhmmmmm !!!??

    So much to ponder – so little interest !!!

    OOOPPS !!!!!! Should have checked my math !!! 15 acres of solar panels power 25 homes – thats .6 acre per home – $2,800. x 5 yrs. = $12,500. How long before this project begins to pay for itself ??
