Will.i.Am on Energy, Environment & Global Warming
Will.i.Am talked about his actions in relation to energy, environment and climate change at the Green Inaugural Ball during President Obama's inaugural events last winter. His take:
"The technology is there. [He said that after he puts solar panels on his house later this year] "I'll be completely off the grid. There's a lot we can do."Did Will put up those solar panels? Send us pictures Will and we will post them. Ummm. But I am told that you will probably keep that grid hookup on your house for the cloudy days and nighttime electricity use.
Will said he owns a Tesla all electric sports car, which costs about $100,000. His comment:
"Crazy torque."He also owns a Bentley. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is $329,990. And it gets only 9 miles a gallon in the city, and 15 miles a gallon on the highway. So we guess Will is splitting the difference. That's okay with me. Sure would like a ride in both of Will's cars. And I bet he has other cars and more than one house too. Ah America. You CAN have it all. (Wash Post, 1/27/09)
