Satellites and other Parasites of Solar Energy

Over the next six years a vast array of satellites will be launched the largest proportion will be communication. Starlink alone will be sending somewhere between 12.000 to 42.000 into space and the numbers will be accelerating as more commercial outfits muscle in on the internet and communication. After they have finished working, these items of space junk will decay in their orbits until gravity drags them down to the ground or sea. But this will take a minimum of twenty-five years for those that comply with regulations, however, most will not because they do not have to so more and more junk litters the sky becoming a danger to many other collectors of information.

One problem that has not been looked at is that all these objects will operate like a curtain between the earth and outer space preventing solar energy from reaching the surface of the earth. But how much? if it was just the satellites not such a big problem but they all have giant solar arrays of huge panels to collect energy to drive the people’s desire to talk endlessly and take stupid videos. On this basis how much heat and energy will be prevented by these internet monster from reaching the ground? what will be the effect on sea surface temperatures? will a new ice age begin and earth turn into a giant snowball. Today we talk about global warming and climate change because of greenhouse gases. But what will happen if you place a curtain around the earth, a curtain of electronic junk, cutting of the energy, the heat and the light from space or impairing it to such a degree you destroy life on earth?

To make matters worse energy companies are laying out thousands of Hectares of solar panels absorbing vast quantities of sunlight and preventing it from reaching the earth’s surface. When you add to this the millions of wind turbines taking energy out of the weather systems globally, which initially will seem like a small effect, how could these machines reduce the energy and heat within the earth? you ask, but eventually the cumulative effect becomes overwhelming. The question used to be how could coal fired generators alter the worlds weather, but that question was answered some while ago. Today the world and sun alone does not have an infinite ability to satisfy humanities lust for energy nothing comes for free, there is always a cost, there is no such thing as a free meal and that includes perpetual motion. We are always told that wind power is there to help the environment and to and keep the planet healthy, but the first wind turbines are being decommissioned as we speak. What American companies are doing is dismantling the machines cutting up the blades into manageable pieces and then digging giant holes and burying them. These blades are made of fibre glass and all they need to do is run them through a line of crushing rollers until all the resin is turned dust which can be recycled and the glass weave put into the furnaces but big money is not interested, “destroy the world” that is their moto.

In the 1950’s pollution had become so bad that even the politicians decided it was time to bring in some form of regulation people were dying of pulmonary diseases on a record scale. It was safer to smoke cigarettes, you only took in tar and nicotine. Crossing the road was a major exercise in safety, as cars lorries and buses appeared out of nowhere. We could not even enjoy the benefits of the new social entity the old age pension, they were killing us off so fast. So they turned their attention to the coal industry. Every house had a coal fire, all that smoke being produced meant smog, and so the clean air act was passed in parliament and the major visible form of pollution started to vanish. Smog became a thing of the past and we were just left with the invisible poisons that entered our lungs, destroyed brain cells plus killing the children’s future at the same time.

One plus of the twentieth century was the electric bus or more commonly known as the Trolleybus. These looked like conventional buses which drew electricity from overhead cables, a fairly simple infrastructure system no tracks were needed like trams or street cars and they had a battery system which allowed movement when not connected to the overhead cables. The first trolleybuses were in use in 1911 starting in Bradford and Leeds, then in London in 1912. These systems were quite widespread in the UK, and trolleybuses are still in use in many places around the world where it is a clean and efficient means of transport that can use the existing roads with only slung cables to provide power. There is no vast infrastructure to pay for, unfortunately these no longer exist in the UK we have “Diesel.”
The petrol companies and automotive industries hold great sway in Britain, they make sure their interests are looked after whilst poisoning us with lead to get better performance from poorly made engines. But today we are told the air that comes out of cars is cleaner than what goes in. Why are we are so gullible? we believe anything the advertisers tell us and so the death knell of the Trolleybus in Britain was decided in the early Sixties. They were removed from the streets of Britain and the Diesel won and pollution poured forth silent insidious and poisonous filling our lungs and killing the children.   Today we have diesel buses and diesel taxis which fill our cities with silent deadly poison. There is a haze above every city in the world a greenish yellow haze full of particulates and brake dust.

However, today we have the technology to build cars, lorries and buses that do not need large engines to power them and the braking system puts power back into batteries rather than producing dust to kill us.

So what is stopping this transformation? why are our cities not clean and healthy conurbations of clean air? for this answer we have to ask the politicians. Are they still in the pockets of the oil industry? in Madrid the pollution is so bad they restrict vehicles into the city which is madness considering the technology already exists to prevent this.
I know this cannot happen tomorrow it takes some time but the time has now come to invest in the future, it is time to get ahead of this great problem. Rules need to be changed today financial incentives can be used to direct peoples purchasing decisions.

You see the longer these decisions are delayed the greater the danger to our health and long term wellbeing of the Planet.

 

After all it is only money that needs to be spent and we waste billions every day, so lets do something useful for a change. As you can see from these pictures Electric cars look the business. Plus with  Electric buses and taxis are now being produced why aren’t cities around the world purchasing fleets of them?
