What Happens When There’s a Huge Solar Energy Spill?

April 2nd, 2012 by

This is a wonderful billboard from Vote Solar that I ran across the other day on Facebook. Of course, I reshared it, and I think it could have been my most popular share ever. For good reason, too, it’s a simple yet important point expressed in an ingenius way. Enjoy, and share it with friends! ๐Ÿ˜€

(If you can’t read the billboard in the picture for some odd reason, it says: “When there’s a huge solar energy spill, it’s just called a ‘nice day’.”

    Probably the funniest 2:47 I’ve seen in a long time. However, I’ll bet that there are some people who will believe stuff like this. What a hoot! Nice call Luke….

    LOL good one. In a totally opposite way, It reminds me of an Onion video where the coal lobby says that solar is causing ‘the sun to run out’ and that using wind ‘will blow the planet out of orbit’.

    Nice post Zachary.

      That made me really laugh out loud. ๐Ÿ˜€ If you have that link, would love to repost that. If not, I’ll try to search for it. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Great satire again from America’s most reliable news source! ๐Ÿ˜€
