The White House recently announced that a new set of solar panels will be installed on the White House roof. I agree with 350.org founder Bill McKibben when he applauded the Obama administration by saying, “Better late than never — in truth, no one should ever have taken down the panels Jimmy Carter put on the roof way back in 1979 … It’s very good to know that once again the country’s most powerful address will be drawing some of that power from the sun.”
Perhaps another good sign that the administration is preparing to reject the Keystone XL pipeline? After all, how can the president, install clean energy solar panels on his roof and then put a dirty, leaky pipeline in America’s backyard?
Seems to me the installation ceremony for the new panels would be the perfect place for the president to announce he’s rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline.
