International Space Elevator (ISE)

2030: With the reduction of global ice, Antartica reveals a wealth of untapped resources. United Nations (UN) claim governance over the continent and start utilising these resources. 2040: With the devastation caused by global warming, there is little alternative but to abandon fossil fuel options to leave Earth’s orbit. Earths dwindling resources are channeled into the construction of The International Space Elevator (ISE). 2050: With the final construction of the ISE over the southern pole of UN Antartica, efficient (fossil-fuel free) space access is achieved. Not only does the ISE revolutionise efficient non-fossil fuel space travel, it can be used to expel the unwanted greenhouse gases into space. Ultimately allowing humans to readjust earth’s greenhouse gases to safe levels, reversing the effects of climate change.

Tim Suetens That would be nice, and that's why it ain't gonna happen. Can you imagine the bureaucracy involved in such a project? We can't even agree on or enforce the lackluster Paris Accords, let alone agree on this trillion-dollar project. 06 Feb 2019
Станислав Выход в космос с Южного полюса неудобен с точки зрения астрономии и расположения. Ось Земли меняется и многое в предсказании просто не может произойти с научной точки зрения. В конце концов, можно перейти на другой вид топлива. 06 Feb 2019
