Italy plans on building a 200ft tall statue of Padre Pio, a religious heavyweight canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. This isn’t that spectacular in itself, but what makes this statue a little more green than most in the vast papal realm, is the fact that it will have magical, god-like energy producing powers.

“The statue will be coated in a special photovoltaic paint which will enable it to trap the sun’s heat and produce solar energy, making it an “ecological” religious icon.”

I’m sure he could have done more, I say.  {insert sarcasm here}
