Re: The White House won't reinstall Carter era solar panels

The author Bill McKibben continues on this campaign. I guess that's what you do when you are the head of a Advocacy Group that needs funds.

He's calling for acts of civil disobedience at the White House now.

"Which is why, with other environmental leaders, we recently issued a call for ideas about a campaign of civil disobedience next spring — at power plants and coal mines but at White Houses too, if they don't turn at least a little green."

Re: The White House won't reinstall Carter era solar panels

Hmm, sounds like a classic case of saying one thing and doing another as far as energy policy goes?

Re: The White House won't reinstall Carter era solar panels

I wonder who would get the federal tax credit?

Re: The White House won't reinstall Carter era solar panels

I heard the story back in 1981, was the White House roof needed repairs and it was not considered cost-effective to remove then reinstall the solar panels...so it may not have been the picture opportunity to discredit Jimmy Carter as believed.
