So news out of Washington, DC today is that the Obama Administration has decided to return solar panels to the roof of the White House. Deja vu all over again. Google “solar panels Jimmy Carter” for details. I live all of 60 some miles from that den of inequity and perhaps I can describe the climate in this area; wind, rain, overcast skies, more rain, more overcast skies, fog, snow, more snow, and then the occasional sunny day. The panels take a beating from sun, wind, and rain, yank at the roof substructure, and fail miserably years before you’ve saved one f*cking miserable ton of carbon dioxide.
He who does not learn from history is destined to annoy me.
