Interesting ... but the space elevator will not work unless you can deal with the discharges of plasma and super lightning .
You may recall there is a layer of charged particles that surrounds and flows in and out of the Earth at the poles .
the North is (-) and the south pole is (+) .. This is a god awful lot of energy
Remember the Tether experiment ??
They were trying to see how much energy they could gather ... well it turned out they got a lot more than they bargained for .. the energy was so
great it vaporized the titanium fittings .. that's how they lost it .
The Sun puts out tremendous amount of plasma/electrical energy the EM field of the Earth collects part of that ....
The thread Here
shows what happens when a conductive path is created this energy
wants to flow to ground ..
Dont be there when it does .
We could tap a portion of that energy at the North pole and probably power the entire planet .
