Las realidades del vivir cotidiano vistas con humor, no dejan de ser realidades pero son más amables. La sociedad está llena de héroes desconocidos, a ellos quiero dedicar mi atención. La poesía tendrá aquí un pequeño espacio.

Scott Brusaw: un soñador para el mundo




Carreteras solares

Sustituir el asfalto de las carreteras por paneles solares especiales. Esta es la propuesta de un ingeniero estadunidense, Scott Brusaw, como medio de combatir el cambio climático y la crisis energética. Este sistema podría aportar energía suficiente para iluminar las carreteras durante la noche, calentarlas en invierno e, incluso, cubrir la demanda de energía eléctrica de todo el país.


Brusaw apoya su idea en una estimación del ingeniero químico de la Universidad norteamericana de Caltech, Nate Lewis, experto en energía solar. Según este ingeniero, Estados Unidos podría conseguir la energía que necesita si cubriera el 1,7% de su superficie con conversores solares, dado que la red nacional de autopistas interestatales alcanza una superficie similar.


Brusaw ha fundado una empresa (Solar Roadways) para tratar de hacer realidad su idea. Explica que el sistema basado en tres capas superpuestas, albergaría además de los paneles solares, una red de distribución eléctrica para suministrar energía a las viviendas y una red de cables de fibra óptica para televisión e internet de alta velocidad. Estas carreteras serían “inteligentes” además de ecológicas ya que podrían incluir un sistema que reconfiguraría los carriles para evitar atascos, avisaría a los conductores de posibles adversidades en su trazado e incluso salvaría la vida de la fauna cercana al impedirles el paso.



En cualquier caso, el responsable de Solar Roadways estima que dentro de cinco años podría empezar a probar su sistema de carreteras. Para ello, elegiría el norte de Idaho, concretamente el corredor entre Sandpoint y Coeur d’Alene, para demostrar que puede funcionar incluso en un clima frío, quitando la nieve y generando energía.

Mira Fran por lo que he leído el mundo entero puede funcionar con energía solar, pero...hay muchos interese creados con el petróleo y a muy pocos les importa, que no solamente es más barata, sino que no se produce calentamiento global.
Me encanta que te preocupes por estas cosas y nos abras la cabeza con ideas tan geniales.

Hola Francisca! Me he andado dando una vuelta por tu casa y llegue hasta la sangre verde a causa de las migrañas, un mal que lamentablemente me heredaron mi padre y mi abuelo (y que digan despues que es una dolencia 'femenina'), pasando por el ejercito de un emperador que murio loco de opio, los sueños de una niña y el sueño de un adulto de querer salvar al mundo. Ya recuperada, andamos de nuevo en las andanzas, aunque aclaro que no siempre pienso. Casi todo el tiempo pero no siempre.

hola dulce mia
coincido con mónica, hay tantos intereses creados que no se si cosas tan geniales puedan llevarse a cabo
aca en Argentina, lei hace muchos años sobre un auto que no funcionaba con nafta, pero obviamente no lo dejaron que siquiera fuera expuesta la idea... :(
y sería fantástico, menos contaminación ambiental, más salud, pero nada

excelentes tus artículos, muy buenos de verdad, y yo con tiempo voy leyendo todo :)

gracias por tus dulces palabras mi querida fran, me alegro te gusten mis poemas
ahh, y no está inspirado en mi hijo, sino en alguien tan niño que lo protejo casi como a un hijo, pero sabes, Fran, a mí alguna vez, me gustaría ser protegida también, y no siento eso de parte de el, mi enamoramiento no es correspondido, y en algún momento, quizá deje volar ese globo, para que no sienta siquiera mi molestia :(

un beso enorme bonita mia!

Pedro dijo...

quien sabe si algun dia se puedan vencer los intereses que impiden el desarrollo de iniciativas como las que comentas....
