Your Questions About Solar Power International

Charles asks…

Preventing the international space station falling…?

Could large blades be used on the international space station such as on a Helicopter to raise the space station again. This could be powered by Solar sun..

ssadmin answers:

There is no wind in space for lift like a helicopter , the shuttle would have to attach some extra boosters to the station.

Donna asks…

If u were president of the US (or elsewhere), what would u do (or not do) about global warming?

This is for a paper for school. Any more ideas? Comments?

So far, this is what I have:
If I were elected president of the U.S. in 2012, I would try to reduce greenhouse emissions for the good of mankind. The main goal of my campaign would be to lower the cost of alternative energy sources for the public. First of all, I would give tax incentives to civilians who purchased fuel efficient or electric cars, with the electric car getting the larger incentive. I would also give tax breaks and additional grants to those companies who researched alternative energy methods, such as solar panels, hydro-power, and wind mills. Furthermore, I would hire scientists to design and build me a luxurious solar powered jet for my international travels. Thus, I would not be hypocritical. Also, funding public awareness of energy savings would be imperative to my campaign. The main focus of this campaign would be how much money a person can save each year through simply unplugging items when they aren’t in use. Any person, business, etcetera would be given an enormous tax incentive if they only updated their homes to be more energy friendly; a few of these upgrades would include energy efficient windows, garden rooftops, and light colored roofing. On the international level, I would speak with other leaders and convince them to follow my lead for a better future. If I were the president, I would strive to decrease our impact on the environment.

K…. not trying 2 start a debate here. lol!
Even if it isn't caused by ppl, there r still things we can do to attempt to help. Better safe than sorry.
Thanks, Jim Z. In fact, I did like what u said. 🙂 Great points.

ssadmin answers:

Since it is for your school I decided to answer you point by point but you aren't going to like it.

If I were elected president of the U.S. In 2012, I would try to reduce greenhouse emissions for the good of mankind. Is that really the job of the president. He is supposed to protect the constitution and our liberties. We expect the president to work in our interests.

The main goal of my campaign would be to lower the cost of alternative energy sources for the public. It is fine and dandy to lower the cost of something. To do that, you need to have a demand for the product. If there is a demand costs will go down. Without it, the costs would climb.

First of all, I would give tax incentives to civilians who purchased fuel efficient or electric cars, with the electric car getting the larger incentive. You give tax incentives. Are you going to reduce the size of the government to account for the those tax incentives or are you going to strap future generations with dept. If you plan to tax others more, than you are going to harm the economy. Typically what happens when the government gives out punishing taxes, they actually recieve less revenue as logic would dictate.

I would also give tax breaks and additional grants to those companies who researched alternative energy methods, such as solar panels, hydro-power, and wind mills. Same comment as before.

Furthermore, I would hire scientists to design and build me a luxurious solar powered jet for my international travels. If they could desing solar powered jets that were economical, they would. Thus, I would not be hypocritical. Also, funding public awareness of energy savings would be imperative to my campaign. You can't just have people design something for you. The president shouldn't use other peoples money to design special things for him/her. That would be more fitting for a king or dictator.

The main focus of this campaign would be how much money a person can save each year through simply unplugging items when they aren’t in use. Once you start paying your energy bill, you have an incentive to conserve. Who wants to throw away their money. On the other hand, if I buy something such as TV, I expect to use it without the government trying to regulate its use.

Any person, business, etcetera would be given an enormous tax incentive if they only updated their homes to be more energy friendly; a few of these upgrades would include energy efficient windows, garden rooftops, and light colored roofing. Same answer as before. If you give tax incentives, you have to reduce government, increase borrowing, or increase taxes elsewhere. When you start paying your own utilities, you have an incentive to do those things anyway. I support this item except the roofing and garden rooftops but it has to be paid for. I have my garden. My roof is too dangerous and weak to garden on.

On the international level, I would speak with other leaders and convince them to follow my lead for a better future. Agreed. Every leader wants others to follow. The duty of our president is to convince others to follow for a beneficial future but to be sure to work in our interests.

If I were the president, I would strive to decrease our impact on the environment.
Everyone, Everyone, wants to decrease our impact. Noone supports dirty air or dirty water. There is a cost to every option however.

Chris asks…

Do You Think DUBAI Will Be The Best City In The World In A Few Years?

i just saw this yesterday….. all this new constructions and the things they are planning to do…. makes America look weak…. im an american and i think so…. they've made islands in the shape of the world…. http://guide.theemiratesnetwork.com/living/dubai/images/the_world/the_world_dubai.jpg
thats some work…

look at this residential housing.. http://www.invest.bulgarian-estate.net/dubai_marina_palm.jpg
they're going to have three things like that that will have looks from tiny organisms….

the tallest building in the world. the Burj Tower… http://www.ssqq.com/archive/images/dubai25.jpg
even taller then the Grand Canyon Sky Walk

a lagoon.. airport.. http://www.dubaiprop.com/images/Dubai-Lagoon-05.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/74/Dubai_International_airport_interior.jpg

Awesome hotels… (underwater)http://blog.miragestudio7.com/2006/02/hydropolis-underwater-hotel-dubai-uae/

a theme park that will hold its own mountain of snow so u can ski and snowboard inside while its 85 degrees outside
rollercoaster rides, swimming park…. God dam…

and they’re planning to build a new type of building, it has its own yard, plants on every floor (a total of 20) its for residential living, its not shape like a square, think of it like skipping stones stacked together, neat ha, and it spins, yes it rotates very slowly… so ur view is always changing so slow that the residents wont feel it but its rotating, uses solar power and something else, self efficient building…..

If I had the money, I would invest but that has got to be the best city in the world…. Of course that’s after they finish construction… in a few years or more….. dang… cant wait….

So what do u guys think…. Awesome city or what… and don’t hate it just because u want to represent ur city… or because u hate where Dubai is located… judge it base on what it has compared to other cities…..

ssadmin answers:

Yea definitely look at all those building and stuff no where else have these

Laura asks…

Future of International Space Station?

i am wondering, why don't they make space station more bigger and advance. why don't they built rooms, etc… within it ?

similar to this one:

http://freedomspaceforce.com/civilian_space_stations.jpg

I know it's too advance, but quite like it. it should not be that hard. just power it up with solar energy and build rooms, gyms, hallways in it.

i know one issue is $. But they don't don't even think about it.

ssadmin answers:

Do some science homework instead of Sci-Fi, and see what's already in the ISS. There is a gym, multiple rooms, hallways and more. I saw a great tour video about the ISS on YouTube a couple weeks ago. Look for it.

Ken asks…

how does an Xbox work?

like where does the energy come from?like power factory or international power company….ect. what kind of energy it will be? like solar,hydro, geo-thermal….ect.

ssadmin answers:

Well, if you live in a well-developed country, it is hard to say exactly what source of energy produced the electricity used by your Xbox. The reason for this is because the electric power grid is so inter-connected; many power plants are connected to many common connection points.

At the moment, the vast majority of electricity is produced by using coal, natural gas, or nuclear fuel. Hydro and some renewables make up the rest with oil also being a very small contributor. See the pie chart in the recent energy statistics article (first link).

If you are curious how that electrical energy gets to your home, check out the How Stuff Works link (second link).

And finally, the Xbox, like any computer, has a power supply that converts the somewhat high voltage at your home's outlet into a much smaller DC voltage that can be used by the processor, hard drive, etc.

Then the DC voltage drives all the little transistor circuits that do the billions of operations per second needed to let Master Chief respond to your commands as you play Halo.

But remember, it all started as some form of energy produced by a power plant (which one, you probably can't tell).
