Obama plan: Paint roofs white to save world
Suggests light colors would reduce global warming
Steven Chu, who directed the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and was professor of physics and molecular and cell biology at the University of California before being appointed by President Obama to be the U.S. Energy Secretary, says white paint is what’s needed to fix global warming.
Chu, who according to the federal agency’s website, successfully applied the techniques he developed in atomic physics to molecular biology and recently led the lab in pursuit of new alternative and renewable energies, has told the London Times that by making paved surfaces and roofs lighter in color, the world would reduce carbon emissions by as much as parking all the cars in the world for 11 years.
You’ve got to be shitting me. The ONLY way in the fucking WORLD I would paint my roof some hideous shade of white is if Barack Hussein HIMSELF climbed his scrawny ass up a ladder and painted it his own damned self. Besides, wouldn’t one think – since darker colours attract and retain heat much better than LIGHTER colours – that this would cause much more energy use come the cold months of winter? How much energy are those ecogeeks going to waste trying to stay warm.
If they painted highways white – all of the bloodsmears from those idiots driving those cupcake ecogeek cars involved in accidents with a REAL car would be visible for months! It would just be a reminder to the rest of us WHY those cars aren’t worth a shit.
