Apollo, the Greek God of the Sun, was furious, and caused all Greek gyro restaurant owners in the United States to start charging 50 cents for extra tzatziki.
Jimmy Carter, who originally installed solar panels only to see them removed by Ronald Reagan was equally angry and threatened to go negotiate a new peace treaty with North Korea.
Enivros were also unhappy, according to the AP report.
“On we’ll go,” sighed Bill McKibben, founder of the climate activist group 350.org. “One more summer of beautiful, strong sunlight going to waste, just bouncing off the White House roof.”
McKibben and other environmentalists say the failure to meet its own deadline reflects an administration that’s been long on green rhetoric but sometimes disappointingly short on practical accomplishments.

Mrs. Obama, you’ve had two babies, and no solar panels? What’s wrong with you? At least put the damn things up to get Mr. McKibben out of your hair.
