The point is....that even though Solar Power has come a long way, there are still major issues (that the article convenientlydoes not mention) with being able to consistenly generate the levels of energy needed as well as the major need to store energy to cover those periods where solar cannot generate the levels needed.
In short, the issue is that (as usual) those pesky little things called "facts" completely escape you.
Ever heard of "weaning?"
We're never gonna get off the oil companies' *** if we don't start gradually transitioning to alternative forms of energy. No one is saying, "100% solar energy now!" But if a country is capable of generating half it's energy demand for any amount of time without using fossil fuels, then it's a victory.
Jeez, it's such a common trope in the Tinderbox. Literally half the issues on here, the negative position is "If we can't fix everything at once, let's do nothing."
Gun debate - "We can't stop gun crimes, so let's do nothing."
Redskins name - "Native Americans have lots of other problems they should be worried about, so let's do nothing."
Solar energy - "You can't completely replace fossil fuels at once, so let's do nothing."
Gay marriage - "This is still a Christian country and I believe in traditional marriage, so let's do nothing."
People try so hard to keep things the way they are; rationalizing the status quo. It's like they fail to realize that change is the nature of all things. Even the universe is expanding.
