Sun may hold answers


In his book, “The Next 100 Years,” private intelligence forecaster George Friedman writes about Solar Space Power (SSP), a program being researched by NASA.

SSP is a vast number of photovoltaic cells, placed in geostationary orbit, designed to convert solar energy into electricity. The electricity is converted to microwaves, transmitted to receivers (in remote areas due to intense microwave radiation), and then reconverted to electricity for distribution on the existing and expanded electrical grid. SSP is much less intrusive and much less risky than nuclear reactors and hydrocarbon extraction.

Mother Earth is in a perilous state. We need help, and SSP may be the solution to our crisis. Please contact your representative.
