Fossil energy fueled the Industrial Revolution, a period of enormous economic growth and improvements in living standards, providing substantial benefits to the developed nations during the 19th and 20th centuries. However, in the 21st century, as other nations seek to emulate the economic success of their neighbors, attempting to provide a means to reduce poverty and achieve economic growth, it is becoming abundantly clear that the fossil energy approach is unsustainable. We simply must develop alternative, renewable energy resources if our civilization is to continue to flourish.
Terrestrial solar and wind will become important energy sources, but they are unfortunately intermittent. Space Solar Power can deliver energy 24 hours per day. Mankins' book puts forth a viable plan for how we can establish Space Solar Power as a viable cornerstone for our renewable energy future.
Note to author - I see you want to promote SPS - consider teaming up with another author to make a more enjoyable version of the book.
