We need white roofs and light-colored cars to cool our overheating planet , says Energy Secretary Chu. What next, white streets ?

Well, why not? According to Agence France-Presse:

Making roads and roofs a paler colour could have the equivalent effect of taking every car in the world off the road for 11 years, Chu said.

Fhyre, we salute you. And beg forgiveness for our old-time snarkfest. And -- heck, dang -- on with the paint party!
