How many Exponential Steps to Mars

Press release from: Photovoltaic for Europe

When we want to understand the exponential impact to the biosphere Johan Rockström can help, speaking from the World Economic Forum in Zurich:

If I take 35 linear steps, I’ll barely reach the coffee stand outside of this room. What happens if I take 35 exponential steps(Steps doubles up)? I’d reach Copenhagen after 21 steps. Three more steps, I’m in New York. Another two steps and I encircle the entire planet. And, if I add another nine steps to my 35(+1), I reach planet Mars.

We need severe action and very ambitious targets to fight the exponential nature of climate change but also degradation of our energy sources. So do not live in the illusion some small scale photovoltaic project will help, we need massive scale up of project into the area of gigawatt instead of thinking in kilowatt and megawatt. As Robert Hunziker describes in his article:

The Great Acceleration, post WWII humanity forcing the earth system, is charging ahead at exponential speed, including record temps year-after-year-after year-after year and on and on it goes, relentlessly.

Fatally, many parts of the world become uninhabitable with a 2°-4°C increase in temps, too hot for human physiology. Under the circumstances, the human body cannot get rid of bodily heat fast enough. People die. Will worldwide average temps increase by 2°-4° and if so, how fast? Nobody knows for sure, but the outlook is lousy.

We need to understand that we are in a nonlinear exponential phase… we have overwhelming scientific evidence that humanity now faces a new juncture of grand global risk. We have in just five decades transitioned from being a small world on a big planet where we could allow ourselves to have unsustainable economic growth without Earth sending any invoices back to humanity up to now with overwhelming scientific evidence of a new big world on a small planet. We’ve reached the saturation point. We’re hitting the ceiling of the biophysical capacity where we can no longer exclude destabilizing the entire earth system.

So I made an online exponential(double) Cash or Steps Calculator on Photovoltaik for Europe.

Through a family business founded in 1985, I have been working independently with subsidiaries companies, for over 20 years in the field of computer science and renewable energies.

Even as a child, I was fascinated by the family's small hydropower plant in Styria and since then I have been in flames for sustainable solutions.

TOP 5 Most Efficient Commercial Available Solar Panels March of 2020
he photovoltaic industry has made tremendous progress and is the cheapest way to build new electricity production capacity worldwide. Another positive feature is that photovoltaics produce no emissions. Finally, the danger of fine dust as a possible intensifier of the course of a coronavirus disease has also caught the attention of the media. ? We should focus much more on resilient and decentralized solar energy, also to improve the health, living conditions and financial
Calculate Corona doubling by yourself
"The greatest weakness of humanity is its inability to understand the exponential function," said physicist Al Bartlett in his book "The Essential Exponential!" written. For Example there are 112 (known) corona cases in Austria today and the rate of duplication (outside of China) is 4 days. So could there be 1 million cases in Austria in just over a month? Do the calculations yourself with this doubling calculator: http://www.pv4.eu/calculate-corona-doubling-by-yourself_2048.html But you can use
Ski Lift can run on photovoltaic electricity of the summer
“In summer, weights are transported up the mountain and left in the valley in winter, and the photovoltaic energy of summer is available in dark winter.” Bill Gates explained his investment in lift or gravitational energy storage technology in a similar way. Batteries are getting cheaper and cheaper and will soon offer a cheap, short-term solution for storing energy for daily energy needs. However, the long-term storage capacity of batteries, for example
Are rare earths used in Solar Panels and Batteries
According to a report by ADEME , the earths are not so rare. Especially in photovoltaic or solar energy and battery technologies are not widely used. Despite their name, they are not that rare. The rare earth consumption in the area of ​​the generation of renewable energies is mainly due to the use of permanent magnets for offshore wind energy, which are only used by a small part of the wind
