Solar power and environmental theology

I ponder the question of why solar energy can be described as green while housing, parking lots and development can be described, by the same person, as environmentally damaging. Why is covering square miles of land with highly reflective, waterproof sheets of glass, taking away farmland, creating stormwater drainage problems, and destroying animal habitat better than pavement and rooftops?

Perhaps because the theology of climate change has triumphed. The preference is not rational; the preference is closer to a theological expression than a rational articulation.
