With Bush you just never know

So is this a photo-op or is this a sign that the Bush folks are really starting to get that we need to wean ourselves off of oil?
According to a recent article in the Guardian, President Bush announced that the torch on the Statue of Liberty is to be lit exclusively by wind power.
Pepco Energy Services has won the three-year contract to provide power primarily from wind farms in Pennsylvania and New York state.
"An even more prominent commitment to alternative energy had been promised in an early design for Daniel Libeskind's rebuilding of Ground Zero, which was to have included 30 windmills at the top of the centrepiece Freedom Tower."
Of course, the environmentalist are leary and want to know if it is just the same old oil guy doing a photo op as in the past.
