Dr. Goodman


"A really important engineering challenge"

Climate change is our most serious problem. Strictly local solutions are at least very inefficient and 
they may be impossible for many countries.
In this talk you’ll hear about a novel global approach that assuredly can solve global climate 
change and do a whole lot more for humanity.
And very specifically, you’ll learn how we can build a highly efficient Global Electrical Power 
Distribution Grid that will let us bring solar and wind energy to users anywhere on Earth whenever
they want it from wherever the sun is shinning and the wind is blowing (which is always somewhere
on Earth). This global solution completely eliminates the need for any expensive and inefficient 
utility scale energy storage.
This is YOUR challenge. This is what you can do for humanity that only very competent electrical 
engineers can do.
