CPS or Concentrated Solar Power technology is starting to take the
world by storm. This massively distributed system for extracting
solar energy with mirrors and lenses works by focusing the incoming
sunlight into a highly concentrated area. The result is a highly
scalable and efficient energy source that is allowing for gigawatt sized solar power plants.
Another similar technology, what's called concentrated photovoltaics,
results in concentrated sunlight being converted to heat, which in turn
gets converted to electricity.
Concentrated Solar Power plants will not only solve much of
the world's energy needs, it will also double as a desalination station.
present populations of the planet Earth represent physical adaptation
to their environments.
change has an impact on prosperity. If climate
change is not mitigated or understood early enough, the ability of a
country to generate a livelihood may be impacted by increased disease,
diseases that plants or animals weren't accustomed to, new
pest patterns, and much more.

with which it displaces its weaker kin.
