When will light bulb come on for politicians?

Editor:

Here's the one question I'd like to ask politicians this election: Could we get on with it and adopt solar energy en masse?

It's 54 years since Guy Plecash stood up to tell our Grade 6 teacher, Mr. Nanson, about a trick he'd mail-ordered from the back pages of a comic book: a kit whose bulb lit up when exposed to light.

Mr. Nanson, excited, asked Guy to bring it to class. He did. And as promised, Guy's bulb lit up when exposed to light: solar power. We'd just seen our first demonstration of solar power -- 54 years ago. And it was an old idea even then, one as old as the universe.

So, politicians, when are we going to get on with using it en masse instead of blah-blahing about it?
