It is near years eve in 2020 and I am watching the amazing light displays (mind you I said light displays not firework displays) all around the globe one after another. The amazing colors and the way they dance within the sky with the laser/light technology that makes it possible to see it as if they were fireworks.
All of these light displays are powered by a global power grid, solar power grid, the power sources being at either end of the globe, one on the north pole (sorry Santa) and one on the south pole. The sites would be rather large to be able to hold the amount of energy needed, and to basically have a "city" for the workers that would be there, but every six months the workers would switch sides of the globe, which ever end of the earth was "aiming" towards the sun would be the power center that was doing production at that time.
Of course there would be some logistics to work on for this to actually work, and I have to say it was an idea a friend and I were discussing last year. So I want to give the credit for the idea where credit is due of course.
