America's smartest President shocked the scientific community when he announced that he would solve the world's energy crisis by building 3 million wind-turbines on the Moon.
He stated that the Moon had been chosen for this radical project, because of the NIMBY attitude of the American public to having the noisy and environmentally unfriendly windmills built in their towns and cities.
Obama went on to explain that since nobody lived on the Moon, there would be no opposition from noise pollution activists - and because there was no life on the lunar surface, there could be no environmental impact.
Doubts were raised, however, by smart people from America's top Universities, as to how the wind farms would work, seeing that there was no wind on the Moon.
Similar anxieties were raised by ace engineers, as to how the electrical power could be sent back to Earth.
Unfazed by any of these petty details, Obama reminded the American people that he was in charge of the planet and that whatever he did must be correct.
Obama dispelled any further doubts of his plans as he reflected later that evening on the lawn of his White House home.
He confided to his pet dog, Bo that he feared for the future of the USA, when there was nobody as smart as himself.
'Has nobody heard of solar wind, he sobbed - and can running a bit of wire from the Moon to Planet Earth be so hard?'
