    We on the independent Internet media have to start thinking completely out of the box those with the power to do so put us in. What the dominant media call "pollution" is actually, up to a certain extent we are far from reaching, antiseptic. Before the Industrial Revolution, mankind suffered from plague after plague, including one that killed off half the people of Europe. Get rid of hydrocarbons and that will come back to haunt us.

    Natural "clean" air is saturated with toxic bacteria and viruses, which pollution is far more dangerous to than it is to us. It is the difference between driving on a rough gravel road and a well-paved pretty one that has psychos on the sidewalks throwing heavy rocks at us.

    The motivation of the Eco-freak Trustfundie Treehuggers is the realization that uninhibited development of nature creates class mobility, which is the story of America in a nutshell. It also destroys "heiristocracy," the nobility with no ability.

    Solar Power will enable the Next Industrial Revolution. Indeed, covering all deserts with Solar Cells will increase Global Energy Production about 50 times.

    Hopefully after the Next Industrial Revolution at the end of this Century we will move into Post-Scarcity Economy. Everyone will have resources and there will be no conflict over resources.

    Also in Pre-Industrial World, almost all Wars were fought over material resources. People were executed for theft. Now, mere property is not a matter of life and death.

    In 2019, material resources are still a subject for conflict. Many people are against sharing them with everyone.

    Hopefully, by the end of the century All Humans will have more material resources then an average Middle Class American in 2019.

    By 2100 80% of earth's energy needs will be met with renewables. Just as wood was replaced by fossil fuels (coal, oil, and later natural gas), fossil fuels will be replaced by renewables. If we want to shift away from fossil fuels fast, nuclear is the only current option.

    Definitely. Moreover, massive utilisation of Solar Power will enable a massive expansion in overall energy production. By covering most desert area with solar cells, the Global Power Output will increase by a factor of 50.

    Solar will be collected in space and the energy beamed down.

    Hopefully, this will be the next step in evolution of Solar Power and Humankind. That would enable power consumption at least a hundred times current levels.
