A massive satellite that harvests the power in solar wind could meet the energy needs of all humanity and then some.
Solar Or Wind Power? Why Not Both? : Discovery News
The only reason scientists are even imagining such a megalomaniacal scheme as an orbiting "solar sail" is because the human population keeps on growing and needing more elecricity for an ever-growing economy and its ever-growing profits, as though the Earth could support 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 billion people. Instead, wildfires, drought and flood are spreading around the World as the biosphere is pushed into crisis by the growing mass of industrial pollution. The "solar sail" is a fantastic boondoggle and I hope the government doesn't squander any money on it.
