When evolution created termites with large brains, ie, us, it may have made a mistake. (Termites also build complex structures.) But, whether for good or ill, one should be amazed at the capacity of our busy hands, from coffee tables of wood to the swarms of satellites creating a halo from GEO to LEO, to even those giant container ships distributing made things throughout the planet (and recently in the news.)

Now, in the 21st century, we need to build a world-wide network of power production which doesn't get that power from burning things.

And we better do it fast.
