I shared this on Twitter and Facebook last week but wanted to post it here on my blog as I think it is such an amazing idea.
Take some time to watch the video and see what you think.
Yes it would cost a lot of money but, as it says, the employment and long-term benefit arguments are persuasive.
All over the world corporations and governments are investing millions into fracking that will drain a little more of the planet’s fossil fuel, but this oil and gas will run out in around 15 years. As the video says, the Sun has a much longer lifespan!

Their Indigogo campaign has already raised nearly $2,000,000 which is $1,000,000 more than their intended goal, so it has momentum.
