Earth's Power Needs

by: ccmcgowen

How much energy does the Earth use? How much energy is required to sustain the global economy through the year 2100? What green technologies can deliver these amounts of energy and how long to they take to put in place? We need to know the answers to these questions in order "pick the right strategy" to solve global warming. See for the answers.

  1. 1

    Environmental Carbon Dioxide is

  2. 2

    Where does the bulk of environmental carbon dioxide come from?

  3. 3

    If we solved 100% of ALL transportation related carbon dioxide emission problems what percentage of the total problem will we have corrected?

  4. 4

    Since 1800 the oceans have absorbed over 120 Billion TONS of carbon dioxide resulting in

  5. 5

    Currently the global power consumption is between 14-16 trillion watts. In 2100 how many watts would be required to stablized Earth's atmosphere at TWO TIMES pre-industrial revolutionary levels?

  6. 6

    Stablizing Earth's atmosphere at TWO times pre-industrial revolutionary levels in 2100 will require about 40 Terrawatts. That's how many times 2006 Total Global Wind Generator Capacities?

  7. 7

    What happens to wind generators if the wind stops blowing?

  8. 8

    Terrestrial Solar Power is

  9. 9

    A significant factor in the costs associated with space based installations is overcoming Earth's gravity. These costs can be significantly reduced

  10. 10

    One solar power platform designed to deliver 10 Gigawatts of power would replace how many terrestrial power generation facilities, thereby eliminating the CO2 they produce?

  11. 11

    Extracting carbon dioxide from hydrocarbon based power plants today

  12. 12

    Space based power

  13. 13

    In the context of question 5

  14. 14

    Space elevators

  15. 15

    In the mid to early 70's a group of businesses asked the US Congress to allow them to purchase a shuttle orbiter and lease back facilities to pursue commercialization of space. Congress said no
