White House Spurns Carter Solar Panels

The White House has reportedly said thanks but no thanks to the offer, reported here, by Bill McKibben and to return one of the solar panels installed on the White House roof during the Carter administration 35 years ago. No explanation was given (that I know of). One can think that it might be because McKibben was harshly critical of President Obama's role at the Copenhagen meeting last year, but that's only conjecture. It does seem to be a missed opportunity for some good press, which the administration needs just now.
