Re John's giant car rooftop solar panels, there is a crowdfunding
proposal to lay solar panels on every road surface in America. So no
need for car roof panels.


I could believe in parking lots, driveways, playgrounds and sidewalks,

The problems of traction, wear, dirt and mud and rubber deposit could
be difficult to solve. But if it works, it is a brilliant idea.

(I bet a friend of Obama gets that government contract!).
