Report: Buckminster Fuller
I have a memory related to Bucky addressing energy distribution, either through the world game, or focussed thought. His premise involved high voltage transmission lines linking Eurasia and North America, and creating a worldwide power grid, fostering distribution of electrical energy that smoothed out diurnal demand cycles. With less fluctuation, support can be generated for solar collectors (PV cells, wind turbines, hydroelectric) positioned on the grid to take advantage of insolation where ever it occurs and provide juice whereever it is needed.

Is there enough interest here to begin a discussion?
