This is what the Solar Cannons of MOE look like...kinda
except there should be one or two more columns of light in the middle section, AND instead of green lights, each column contains "what-looks-like" a
TRILLION multi-colored Christmas-tree lights! So beautiful!
Each ten foot tube section generates 40 watts of electricity, the same as a standard florescent light fixture.
Yawn. "That Small."
But when you consider that each floor, each story, contains between 200 to 5,000 tubes, and you may have 10-20-50-100+ stories of Solar Cannons of Moe installed on your building and - WOW! 500,000 light bulbs - that's a lot of energy!
That' so big it's HUGE!
Which is why I call it "Think Small ... in a BIG way!" ... Now do you understand?
And because the light falls within the boundaries of cities, States and Nations, tax revenue can be collected on the amount of sunlight used...come on, you knew it was coming...a tax on sunlight!
So move over, Elon Musk, there's a new visionary in town - and this new cat has a whole bag of tricks that will put a lot of Americans back to work.
Here is what I need to make the SUPER Solar Cannons of MOE:
I). One under-utilized U.S. based auto glass mfg plant, and a handful of engineers and toolmakers to make
A). Standard sizes of hollow tubes
B). Standard sizes of more "intricate" tubes
C). One engineer and one toolmaker is enough, but ten loyal professionals of each is preferred. It's new technology to be explored.
How safe and tough are the solar tubes? Check out this example on YouTube:
They can stand up against hammer blows, rocks thrown by your competitors, and even the occasional Sharknado!
It will take only seven minutes to explain the process and present the schematics, but as I am not familiar with the current state of technology in this sector I have adjusted my processes downward so that even glass blowers with primitive tools can easily create the solar cannons.
II). One under-utilized U.S. Based auto tire mfg plant and a handful of engineers and toolmakers to make
A). Standard sizes of rubber "knuckles" that each solar tube fits into snugly, creating a bond similar to the knuckles of bamboo stalks.
B). Each knuckle is multi functional/ multi purpose. The rubber walls make excellent housings for small electrical generators, etc.
C). Each knuckle also contains the HVAC exhaust ports for channeling the hot air from the solar tubes into the building, probably utilizing the existing HVAC duct work.
D. One engineer and one toolmaker is enough, but ten loyal professionals of each is preferred. It's new technology to be explored. This team works closely with the glass engineers and glass toolmakers to perfect the design.
It will take only seven minutes to explain the process and present the schematics, but as I am not familiar with the current state of technology in this sector I have adjusted my processes downward so that even rubber molders with primitive tools can easily create the connecting knuckles for the solar cannons.
A). Standard sizes of support trusses that the solar tubes are attached to, AFTER the support trusses have been secured to the exterior of the building or other support structure. Think of it as a gilded birdcage* placed around your building, protecting the people and objects inside the cage.
B). One engineer and one toolmaker is enough, but ten loyal professionals of each is preferred. It's new technology to be explored.
IV). One under-utilized U.S. Based electrical manufacturer of generators, inverters, etc and a handful of engineers and toolmakers
V). One under-utilized U.S. Based automobile tire recycling plant and a handful of engineers and toolmakers to make gaskets for steel girders, goo for sea walls.
VI). One under-utilized U.S. based textile and clothing manufacturer. Our employees get a complete set of six uniforms, including socks, underwear and t shirts, along with boots, all made from U.S.A. raw materials assembled in the U.S.A., just like when troops enter military service.
VII). Because we, as a culture, support renewable products we prefer to package and ship the glass tubes by protecting them with three-inch thick U.S. grown Industrial Hemp rope, thereby providing a source of great income for under-utilized U.S. Based tobacco farms, and eliminating the need for Styrofoam peanuts or cardboard that gets thrown away after one use.
A). Recyclables as a goal, utilizing naturally grown U.S. products as much as possible.
B). Ten thousand grow masters and their family is enough, but one hundred thousand or more loyal professional families is preferred.
C). American Industrial Hemp was once only rivaled by Manilla hemp, so it's time we bring that industry back. Even George Washington grew it at Mount Vernon as a Cash Crop!
Every fool knows that smoking Industrial Hemp is like inhaling a cheap cigar -you'll get very, very sick before you get "high" from it. Actually, an Industrial Hemp Cigarette may be the best deterence to drug abuse! (and the geneic scientists could make the leaves RED for easy identification, right?).
Industrial Hemp makes better cardboard than wood, provides for two or more harvests per year and grows well during both droughts and floods. It's time to put the tobacco farmers back to work, growing a product that is useful and beneficial to all Americans!
VIII). Lawyers: aye! aye! aye! Where to begin? Can I just say an ARMY of lawyers will be needed for this project, everything from labor law to joint government projects in a Private/Public arena. If you are a lawyer, generations of your children will have a job...!
IX). Money managers, Investment Firms, Insurance Companies: Okay, you guys will also have a lot of deals to make as demand soars in the upcoming decades. It will be an exciting time to be alive!
Care to match benefit, Amazon, Facebook, Apple? I challenge you to Buy American and give your employees American Made Products, like shirts, pants, underwear...?! (now THAT would be refreshing!)
What are you doing to stimulate the economy? Hmmm? You have a vested interest in making the American Economy STRONG.
And yes, that means hiring human beings over robots and machines.
Prototypes could easily be build in a week or less, with full production in all manufacturing facilities (3 shifts) possible in 90 days or less!
X). Can miners of coal also mine for magnesium, mica and dolomite? I have a need for these substances. For example, have you ever considered using magnetized steel I beam connectors for construction? You know, a big negative sign on one end and a positive sign on the other?
If you make your connections right, all you need is a pin and a couple of very large springs and you have a structure that will seff-align itself after an earthquake or a disaster (weither natural or man-made). Welded seams split too easily.
Afterall, if X of Pumapunku could magnetize stone, surely we can magnetize steel, right?
NOTE: I never said that you had to magnetize the I-beam connectors at the time of manufacture, nor did I say that you should magnetize the connectors at the time of assembly, when the connectors are literally only inches apart. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages that you must evaluate. What? You never heard of magnetic shipping sheets? What about Alladin and his flying magnetic carpet?
(P.S. - Access to the old bunker system in the crater would be invaluable for my research and development efforts ...!)
Westinghouse had his Tesla, can anyone afford this Morris?
I never said that saving the planet would be easy ... or that I could do it alone or that saving the world could be done on the cheap.
Saving the World is a TEAM Effort. We have to PROVE that Earthling Humans deserve to continue the timeline. And it can only be done with a winning team!
So - come on all you tree-huggers - Don’t let me down!
Love and Peace,
Morris Lee X
And to those that know that they know such things in secret, they know that the "Solar Cannons of MOE" can also be known as "Edison's Revenge!"
"Aaargh!" Edison growled at the news that Nicolai Tesla had been awarded the big contract. He used his forearm to sweep a collection of tall, glass, test-tubes from the top of his lab table to the floor by the open window.
As he stood there looking at the mess he had to clean up, all of a sudden a HUGE light bulb appeared above his head, glowing a bright blue-white light that instantly filled the room!
"That's it!" he exclaimed. "I'll show you ALL what a 12 volt Power Station on every block looks like!"
And with that - he drew up the plans and put them in a locket on the collar/ belt of his favorite cat named Orion.
As he chuckled at his great plans, he accidentally slipped on the liquid mess from the broken test tubes and hit his head on the floor, causing him to black out. When he woke up he was in the hospital and he had forgotten all about his solar tube invention. His cat ran away when no one fed him and soon afterwards Mr. Edison passed away.
Fortunately my Uncle Felix found and took care of the tabby and put the locket in his bag of tricks.
That is why the "Solar Cannons of MOE" could also be known as "Edison's Revenge!"
Question: Would a 12 volt power supply be more easily protected in the event of an EMP event?
No transformers, no inverters, no converters, and the miniature power units of the Solar Cannons are encased in thick rubber and glass...would that protect them from a magnetic pulse?
This sounds like a case for Myth Busters, right? Or the military...
I'm not sure why they used so many supports on this building but I use it as a general representation of how a solar system could be used by a city to protect an 16+ block area, generating electricity for city use, and providing a base (with an open top) for extemely tall strucutes, creating a rival to Moscow's famous spirals"
Yes, even the Capital building would look good with Solar Cannons of MOE instead of ugly grey metal:
