Alright, now I'm feeling pretty hopeful about what power satellites
can do for us. Thanks for sharing!

I'm less optimistic about the chance of convincing politicians 
in the West to support something like this. Fossil fuel companies 
would porbably oppose such a plan vociferously. The best chance 
might be to persuade government people in a developing country 
that has more to lose from climate change.

That's not to say it couldn't be done... look at the Chinese
government, investing far more in wind power than the United 
States in spite of their dependence on coal.

I wonder how much support could be gained from companies that
foresee a future in space tourism or asteroid mining?

Does the National Space Society have any plans to try to pitch
this to anybody?
