This text is about how and why solar power has entered the white House. Since September 2003 167 solar panels have been put on the roof of White House. This shows how sustainable development has entered political consciousness. Solar energy reduces the energy consumption by keeping the White House warm and also heating its water. That installation may seem to be like an anecdote but itís a model for other States (California for example). Of course, the world wont change just because the White House uses solar panels, but it may give some people motivation to do he same.
Finally, it seems to me that it is fundamentalthat politicians act in a way to show that sustainable development is for everybody and everywhere. And even they do use it!
