25. Opportunity Cost.

Continue to use fossil fuels, well probably decimate more of the planet.

Move to more wind and solar, probably decimate less of the planet.

Plus side, in California, they are shoving these things in on every roof they can find and over every parking lot as well.

But you will still see sections of desert still covered with Solar Panels. Where I'm at, they've been doing them in 2-5 acre lots. Our power demands are pretty high.

For example, at one town council in a rural suburb, a newly elected member brought forth the idea of putting in street lights. He was very surprised at the negative reaction that followed. Turns out, the small town doesn't like light pollution at night and enjoys seeing the stars.
