I agree that solar energy is going to be the future source of power for nearly all things we use. I mentioned in the story that solar - along with other renewables needs to be leveraged to create more reliable, resilient and independent grids in places that have none of those things. We must remember that the sun also drives the wind and partially the tides. We can use their energy as well to power the industries of the future.
We need to start thinking more as a global community as opposed to individual countries. The terms of national economies, but global ecology are incompatible. We must consider it one coherent system if we are to be make it a more equitable world without making our climate situation worse.
