The clock is ticking

Consumer tax credits ($500) are set to expire December 31, for homeowners who install energy-saving products such as high efficiency furnaces, water heaters, windows, and insulation. The good news is that solar upgrade tax credits ($2000) will be available until December 2008. Question is: why aren't these credits made permanent? Politicians talk a good deal about the environment but don't follow through with incentives for consumers to go green, and for eco-friendly start-ups to flourish. I'm a fan of anything 'old school', but fossil fuels have been done to death. Let's move on.
