Bring back the White House solar panels

A major symbolic setback for the clean energy movement occured when Ronald Reagan took solar panels off the White House. 350.org is launching a petition to put them back on. Sign it here. This would be a good parenter for Michelle Obama's healthy garden, and perhaps will set an example for other folks to follow. If nothing else, it'll at least reduce one building's reliance on fossil fuels.
On 10/10/10, thousands of communities will join together to celebrate climate solutions. All over the world, we’ll be putting up solar panels, installing wind turbines, digging community gardens, and more.
Will you join us? Install solar panels on the roof of the White House, and then get behind policies that make it possible for everyone in the United States to join you in the clean energy future. We need you to act symbolically—and then we need you to act for real.
