PROPOSAL FOR REDUCTION IN GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE
By Gerald Falbel
TRANSCRIBED FROM MY COMPANY WEBSITE:
The solar products shown in this website are intended to provide alternate energy sources to fossil fuels, which are the predominant cause of global warming and climate change. As is discussed following, even if these products are widely sold and installed, they will produce a negligible reduction in global warming, which currently produces unstable weather throughout the world. Presented following is my proposal to have a significant effect on the emission of CO2 and thereby possibly reduce or slow down global warming. For over 34 years I have been looking for “Sancho Panza’s” to promote this project to “Movers and Shakers” in the USA and internationally, without any success. I look forward to your help in spreading this proposal, or providing rebuttals, if applicable.
1. CLIMATE CHANGE
Unfortunately, the scope of anticipated solar, wind, or other renewable energy projects on the earth in the next 50 years will probably have minimal impact on global warming, now that the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has exceeded 400 PPM. Alternate possible means of reducing global warming are shown in TABLE I below, and also presented in the DETAILS OF PROPOSAL web page herein. The conclusion to be reached from this table is that without returning to the Bronze Age the only practical method of slowing and ultimately reversing global warming is to obtain unlimited solar power from space.
For over 34 years I have proposed the following “free lunch” solution to Global Warming without requiring any increase in US taxes or change in lifestyles. This solution also solves two other structural problems that have appeared in the 21st century.
2. LONG TERM UNEMPLOYMENT AND ECONOMIC STAGNATION
It is patently obvious why the Republicans are against Defense sequestration. This will result in the loss of profits and jobs in the Defense Establishment, a major contributor to the Republican campaign, which was rewarded by Gov. Romney’s proposal for a $2 trillion, ten year defense budget increase. However, they have a realistic point. The only remaining well paying jobs for large numbers of workers left in our slow recovery are in the Defense Establishment, which are presently used for “make work” jobs on weapon systems unsuitable to the War on Terror.
3. THE NATIONAL DEBT AND CONTINUOUS BUDGET DEFICITS
Large, government-funded jobs in infrastructure, transportation, and education are limited by the overhanging National Debt and the Deficit spending that would be necessary to initiate them in the scale of projects conducted during World War II.
My proposed solution treats all of the above issues without any increase in US taxes.
A more suitable use for the Defense sequestration, and more specifically for the un-needed F-35 aircraft, and Atomic warhead upgrading whose projected costs are now expected to exceed $1 trillion, which will be fully paid for, and will ultimately reduce deficits and pay off the National Debt is presented following:
In order to recover from our present malaise, we need a huge infusion of government funds similar to those of World War II, which brought us out of the Great Depression. Eliminating another World War, we can use the Saudi Arabian Model, where its citizens and workers are subsidized generously by the profitable energy receipts of the Saudi government.
The US can achieve this model without increasing taxes or increasing the National Debt, by implementing a proposal I have made to US Movers and Shakers and the Media for over 35 years and specifically to Newt Gingrich on February 25, 1995, without receiving any cogent response or rebuttal, except for Speaker Gingrich who proposed a “pie in the sky” idea for a lunar colony, as a waypoint for a trillion dollar, manned trip to Mars.
My proposal, defined in detail by clicking on the “DETAILS OF PROPOSAL” web page title above, as well as in Chapter 1 in my book, “Solutions”, and is also available on my Facebook page, or on request This proposal would build a solar power station on the moon in ten years in which concentrated solar thermal energy obtained from parabolic concentrators (shown in the DETAILS OF PROPOSAL web page) fabricated from lunar materials is converted to electricity by Stirling Cycle generators invented and developed in the 19th century and operating in current solar systems in California.
This project would be paid for by diverting a portion of the funds from the bloated, already-funded, US Defense Procurement Budget for weapon systems for the F-35 and Atomic warhead upgrading amounting to $1 trillion over ten years. these weapons are useless in wars against ISIS and other Jihadism. These funds would go to the same companies and workers receiving them now, thus preventing large scale layoffs. In addition, this lunar solar program wuuld be funded by the Paris Environmental Agreement authorized $100 billion/year for Climate Change solutions.. As calculated in the Power Point presentation, this power station would beam 21 trillion kilowatt hours/year of totally clean electric energy to the earth 24/7, using the proven technology of microwave power beaming, which passes through cloud cover. This energy would represent only 10% of the yearly world energy use in 2020. At the current average electricity rate of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour, the US Treasury would receive $2.5 trillion per year forever. These funds would eliminate budget deficits, ultimately retire the National Debt, and fund an infrastructure improvement incentive program on steroids, turning the US into a “shining country on a hill”, as well as reducing and ultimately reversing global warming, thus saving $trillions more.
In addition to the above, with unlimited expansion of the above, the US would “corner the market” on world energy, and become a 19th century “Robber Baron” capitalist country, something even the Republicans would approve of.
CURRENTLY PROPOSED EARTH BORNE RENEWABLE SYSTEMS
LUNAR SOLAR COLLECTOR SITUATED AT THE LUNAR EQUATOR FABRICATED FROM LUNAR MATERIAL
BASED UPON THE CURRENT AVERAGE PRICE OF ELECTRICITY OF 12 CENTS/KWATT-HOUR, ONE EQUATORIAL RING OF THESE COLLECTORS CAN GENERATE $632 BILLION RECEIPTS TO THE US TREASURY PER YEAR INDEFINITELY, FOUR RINGS CAN GENERATE $2.5 TRILLION/YEAR, WHILE ONLY AMOUNTING TO 10% OF WORLD ENERGY USAGE IN 2020
