Camel With A Solar Panel (1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here. Sometimes modern technology and the Old World make strange bedfellows, like solar energy and a camel? When I come back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

In the New York Times was a picture of a man in desert robes and turban leading a camel behind him. But there was something rather high-tech about what the camel was carrying on his back. It was a large solar panel, above a box.

The man and his camel were a traveling medical clinic, which used the energy of the sun, via the camel's solar panel, to supply electricity. This is what kept the portable refrigerator running, also on the camel's back, so that the vaccines inside the refrigerator stayed cold. Wow! A solar panel bumping around on top of a camel's humps, on top of his refrigerator.

The camel has a look on his face that says he couldn't care less, but I say whatever works.

That's all from the solar camel desk.
