Insulation is Still Sexy!

October 8, 2010

About 10 months ago, Obama gave his “insulation is sexy” speech at a Home Depot in Virginia.  Shortly thereafter, the computer trolls in the catacombs of the GreenHomes complex, who apparently had too much time on their hands, went to work on this high production quality video.  We all got a laugh over it, and then it sat for many months in its dark electronic corner gathering dust.  Fortunately–or unfortunately as the case may be with this particular gem–an offhand comment on a quiet Friday afternoon caused it to reappear.  So now it’s posted–and we’d all better get back to work!

Obama: “Insulation is sexy”

December 15, 2009

In an event at a Northern Virginia Home Depot today, the President talked about energy efficiency in homes.  “Insulation is sexy stuff” said Obama.  “Here’s what’s sexy about it: saving money.”  And it creates jobs we need to rebuild not just our homes but also our economy.

Big kudos to Congressman Peter Welch who earlier this year introduced legislation that closely parallels exactly what the President was discussing.

President Obama speaks on weatherizing homes and creating jobs.
