Obama Thinks its About More than the F***ing Lightbulbs

We’ve covered our opinion on CFLs  previously and though we think you can save energy with them they are on tactic not the strategy. People get so caught up in the green marketing that they don’t want to get busted and not have an answer if someone poses the question; what have you done that is green? 

Apparently it happened to Obama on the campaign trail. Newsweek reported that Obama was caught by a live mic saying, “I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, ‘You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.’ So when Brian Williams is askingme about what’s a personal thing that you’ve done [that’s green], and I say, you know, ‘Well, I planted a bunch of trees.’ And he says, ‘I’m talking about personal.’ What I’m thinking in my head is, ‘Well, the truth is, Brian, we can’t solve global warming because I f—ing changed light bulbs in my house. It’s because of something collective’.”

I wish he’d said it. I know it was a landside but that would have been worth votes. Plus it says what we are all thinking, this is not about lightbulbs. It’s change in the way we act and interact with our world. It is ours to save.
