My jaw dropped when I heard this claim the other day: George W. Bush's custom-built ranch home in Crawford, Texas has passive solar features, rainwater collection, wastewater recycling, and geothermal heating and cooling. I wanted to make sure this was a credible claim, so I looked for multiple independent references. I give you three to evaluate here, here and here.
Does anybody really need me to point out the irony?
