Here is the long and short of it, we have no choice but to switch our energy sources. Fossil fuels are not renewable, but the sun, wind, geothermal, etc are. There should be no other reason but the fact that fossil fuels WILL run out. The logical choice is to focus our energy on cleaner, renewable ones.
Now I am not saying that it is easy to switch up, we have all become accustomed to a way of life that revolves around fossil fuels and money. What I am saying once again, we have no choice but to stop doing what is not going to work for the long haul. Another logical assumption would be if we keep pumping chemicals into the atmosphere AND the ground, we will soon not have a clean, inhabitable place to continue make this mistake. Maybe not in our lifetime, but in the lifetime of the younger generation. For anyone with kids this should be your first and most important reason.
We must make our move now, time is running out. If you doubt that, please do your own investigative research about the history of the planet, the temperatures relative to the atmospheric composition and the ocean chemistry and so forth. You will see that humans have made a footprint, a bigfoot print. We have to start walking a little lighter.

Wind, Solar, Geo-thermal, bio-fuel, and all the other alternative energy we can think of.
The bottom line is that dirty energy is polluting our planet. We can do better than that.
