Finite fossil fuel
Why isn't it enough that fossil fuels are a finite resource? That alone provides good reason to reduce our dependence on them. The way I see it we have two options:

1. Do nothing until we can no longer extract the fuel we need to run our society. This will certainly lead to catastrophe.
2. Use the fuel we are extracting now to build infrastructure that will reduce our long term dependence on fossil fuels. This will ensure sustainability for future generations.

It's a no brainer and requires zero reference to climate change. So why isn't that enough?

Re: Finite fossil fuel
What do you get for $25k? Batteries and everything? It's only 6k-ish to have a 5kw system fully installed here(no batteries). I don't know how much it would be without govt subsidies though.
