Bill McKibben, author of best-selling The End of Nature and an expert on global warming, is heading to Washington with one of the solar panels originally installed at the White House in 1979.

His goal — to present it to Obama and urge him to reinstall it on the roof, thereby inspiring millions of like-minded citizens to go greener.

To tout clean energy bona fides, President Jimmy Carter had 32 panels installed, which the Reagan administration took down and stowed away in a government warehouse.
