If it were we would all be driving electric cars and have solar panels on our homes.

It's not a scientific issue. If it were, see sentence #1.

It's not that simple. Electric cars tend to cost more, have a more limited driving range, and far more limited recharging options than conventional cars. Converting to solar also comes at a cost that takes time to recover.
Your assertion is similar to saying that the public doesn't care about the lakes because if they did, they wouldn't fertilize their lawns and rake their leaves to the terrace. But, maybe you believe that too.

Kentucky Coal Mining Museum converts to solar power

Communications Director Brandon Robinson told WYMT, they're hoping to save money by the switch.

The work began Tuesday to power the energy, not by coal, but by the sun.

"It is a little ironic," said Robinson.
