I don't know.  It is not that expensive a project because after it
gets started, the profits from selling power satellites finances the
expansion out to displacing all fossil fuels.  We recently spent
twenty times the startup cost on the Iraq war.

Besides that, it would no longer be a failing system.

Are you so certain about the future that you would have me and all the
other people who are trying to solve the problems give up?
