A 200×200 Miles Square is Enough to Power ALL of Humanity!

A bit of an old post but one I think should be distributed to all; Fred Dupont just reminded me about it on twitter.

It is basically from an article from GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations ) and if correct, a 200 miles square collects sufficient solar energy to power ALL human activity.

More detail and some numbers can be found here on Fred’s blog but it is pretty amazing and surely something that we all should be looking at especially when it is do able “today” with the technology / resources we currently have!!
