    sadly, republicans will find a way to make people hate this, think it is evil and insist that if it doesn`t run on oil it should be disregarded.

    Democrats will continue to be spineless little pussies that cannot stand up for anything and everyone else will fall into one of those two groups and believe whatever they are told too.

    we could have a better world, but there is no money in it right here right now...which means there never will be (you need to use your brain to understand why that is) and thus we will always be doomed to fail unless we change.

    Good idea. In a power outage, these still work.

    I love the idea, but I don`t think the design is very nice. Could be executed better than something I see at Ikea.

    I like it. Very cool. I can see this light influencing the design of the surrounding buildings. I foresee some very cool office parks and college campuses in the near future.

    I saw a very similar concept at Floriade 2012 (flower/environment show they host once a decade. They had two trees a bit like this, hooked up with a car port (parking space with a huge overhang covered in solar panels), with a mitsubishi volt plugged into it. Your very own recharging station where the recharging is free.

    A green tree? Go figure. And what, pray tell, stores the solar energy that`s so green? Capacitors? Batteries? Go green. Oh, and way to attach a car ad to a green movement... wtf is so green about an overpriced Toyota SUV?

    I know it`s not about real trees but after I read the title all I could think is that all trees are solar.
