Zax Vagen’s Anti global warming Pinpoint Barrier

Imagine a solution to global warming, a simple yet effective solution that can be implemented very soon using current technology to create monitor and maintain a devise that will be able to regulate global temperatures on a short, medium and even long term basis, depending on what is needed. Imagine no more, the solution is at hand. I, Zax Vagen open my hands and freely extend this as a gift to humanity.

In order for one to understand how the pinpoint barrier works, several simple concepts need first to be understood:
1)The part of the Earth which is effected the most by the Sun, is the equatorial belt at mid-day.
2)The part of the Sun that affects us the most is the closest part of the Sun to the Earth.
3) The closer an object is held to a source of light/heat the bigger the shadow made by the object, but if the object making the shadow is smaller than the source of light/heat then there is an optimum distance between the source and the shadow.
4) Global warming has become a reality with a temperature increase of between just 0.4 – 0.7 Kelvin (not much but too much)
5) When the Sun is eclipsed by the moon the moon makes two different types of shadow, we know them as total eclipse and partial eclipse.

The “Pinpoint Barrier” is simply a large sheet of highly opaque material like mylar, spread over a frame that orbits the Sun between the Sun and the Earth at an optimum distance so as to create a permanent partial eclipse of the Sun. The secret to it’s success is not in it’s size but in it’s position and the length of time that it casts it’s shadow.

A second option to the optimum distance is the L1 Lagrange point,

A Lagrange point is, basically, a parking spot in space. If you put a spacecraft at a Sun-Earth Lagrange point, it remains in a fixed position relative to the Sun and Earth. 18th-century mathematician Josef Lagrange showed that there are five such points.

Earth-Sun Lagrange pointsL1, located 1.5 million km sunward of Earth, is a good place for solar observatories. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), for example, is there now and enjoys a 24/7 view of the sun. The pinpoint barrier can be placed there.

L2 lies in the opposite direction, 1.5 million km above the nightside of Earth. A key advantage of L2 is that the Sun, Earth and Moon are concentrated in one small part of the sky, giving any telescope located there a wide and unobstructed view of deep space. The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) is stationed at L2 and others will eventually join it.

Nasa has proposed A telescope satellite bus

Quote from NASA website;

“L2 is a place in space where we want to place a lot of telescopes,” Stahl continues. So “why don’t we treat it as a mountaintop?” with the telescope’s satellite bus providing all the services of a real mountaintop facility.

Another satellite bus can be constructed at the L1 Lagrange point to accommodate the pinpoint barrier, a solar observatory, a space station or whatever we find need for.

Here are some numbers: In South Africa one square meter of solar power is equal to 1 kilowatt per hour, that is after the Sun’s rays pass through the atmosphere, the ozone layer, moisture, dust, and the magnetosphere. Let’s assume though that in outer space one square meter is bombarded by 2 Kilowatts of sunlight per hour. if we (humans) install The “Pinpoint Barrier” at an initial size of one square kilometer, or one million square meters then the barrier will stop 2 Gigawatt’s per hour of heat from hitting the earth. Thats 48 Gigawatt’s a day, or 17 532 Gigawatt’s a year.

OH remember we only want to drop the temperature by about 0.5 Kelvin. Okay, to answer your question on why i used “Kelvin” absolute zero temperature is zero kelvin, zero degrees Celsius is 273 kelvin also only pegged at the point at which H2O freezes. 30 degrees Celsius (average African temperature) is 303 kelvin. My point you ask is that the ratio in difference between 0.5 degrees Celsius and 30 degrees Celsius is 60:1 and the ratio between 303 kelvin and 0.5 kelvin is 606:1 so in kelvin terms the earth is only 0.001650 recurring, percent too hot, which means we only have to block out from the sun 0.001650 recurring percent of the sun’s rays in order for us to attain our goal of normalization, until such time as we (as humans) can clean up our act.
in Celsius terms 0.5 degrees Celsius too hot is 0.01666667 percent
if we block out 0.01666667 percent of the Sun then hell it’s self will freeze over.

All we need now is for somebody to do it.
How About it NASA?

  1. How would you keep a structure of this size orbiting around the sun, and maintain it’s inclination?
    I’m assuming that it would have to be geocentrically positioned at L1 to maintain a shadow always on the sunside of the planet.

    Another problem I see is that, with the rotation of the earth, no one spot will receive this pinpoint shadow for more than a few minutes. On a planetary scale, weather systems notwithstanding, will this have ANY noticeable effect on the planet?
