Do you remember when, in an act of slap-in-the-face cynicism (that American Environmentalists accepted with little protest) Ronald Regan took the previously deployed (and largely symbolic) solar panels off of the roof of the white house?

Bill Clinton did not restore them. Bush … well, whatever. And Obama has not restored them either.

Time to put them back. Here’s a petition you can sign.

    Why the hell would Reagan remove them? Dislike the guy all you want I just can’t see how that would be helpful. Anyone who would rejoice at less environmentalism would already have voted for him.

    Not to mention, how does a fiscal conservative justify spending money to remove an already installed system that is currently only saving money?

    Not that Reagan was ever actually a fiscal conservative. Like most conservatives of the last 40/50 years, he saw the government as a handy tool to funnel money from the middle class to the wealthy.
