Barack Obama Making Plans To Green The White House

In an interview with Barbara Walters this evening, President-elect Barack Obama mentioned that he plans on “greening” the White House. Obama said he plans to sit down with the chief usher for the presidential mansion and do an evaluation of its energy efficiency. He says part of what he wants to do is show the American people that it’s not that hard to go green.

Since he already turns off the lights (and unplugs energy-wasting electronics when not in use) at his current home in Chicago, he feels there’s no reason why the same can’t be done at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Not since President Jimmy Carter threw some solar panels on top of the White House has an incoming President shown such interest in serving as a “green” example to Americans. So refreshing to see a leader actually serve as a role model for a change, isn’t it?

On 54 days, everyone.
