Last fall President Obama made a promise to have solar panels and solar water heaters installed at the White House by the end of spring. Well, spring has come and gone and I don’t see any solar panels on the roof. Do you?

After the announcement in October, I was immediately thrilled. Finally, we are moving in the right direction and the President is recognizing that we need to divert our dependance on more renewable energy sources,such as solar power.

Today, I am disappointed the White House has not followed through with their promise.

Administration officials say the plan is still active, but do not know when the solar panels will actually be installed. I hope it’s sooner than later. I would love to see some nice shiny panels!

“On we’ll go,” sighed Bill McKibben, founder of the climate activist group “One more summer of beautiful, strong sunlight going to waste, just bouncing off the White House roof.”

If the most powerful and influential person in the United States can’t get solar panels on his roof in eight months, how can the rest of America think that living a more sustainable and environmentally responsible life is important? We follow by example! Now lead, Mr. President, and show us you care about our lovely planet!

My thoughts, not yours, so be nice!

    Solar power is really the only way to go. We all need to do our part to spread the word. It’s just about getting the word out that solar and going green takes “just about the same effort”.

    Interesting, it seems Obama is no different to our British pm. He says a lot of things but sadly their actions don’t match their words, such as the recent cuts in feed in tarrif for home owners going solar in the UK.
