“Instead of using the buried treasure savings account of fossil fuels, we can live off our income of solar, wind, and other alternative and renewable energy sources. The amount of sunlight that hits Spaceship Earth every hour can supply all our energy needs for a day. In a radically different, retrofitted Spaceship Earth, we can create extra energy every day. Our daily energy income can be greater than our use of it; we can accumulate unused energy, every day, and not release any emissions at all.”

“Climate change poses a significant challenge for the United States and the world at large. As greenhouse gas emissions increase, sea levels are rising, average global temperatures are increasing, and severe weather patterns are accelerating. Climate change may exacerbate water scarcity and lead to sharp increases in food costs. The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world. These effects are threat multipliers that will aggravate stressors such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions – conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence.”
