A message for President-elect Barack Obama — look to space-based solar energy platforms to source our planet’s energy needs after oil runs out and nuclear power proves too expensive. That is the message of a sharp video which promotes space-based solar energy as THE alternative energy solution.
The video runs less than five minutes and says oil will run out, all other combinations of fossil, nuclear and alternative energy currently in play will only supply one third of Earth’s energy needs by 2100. But the 24/7 nature of solar panels in space-based platforms uses existing technology to deliver twice as much energy without the environmental hazards posed by large desert solar panels.
