"one report roughly estimates that covering less than 1% of the world's cropland with conventional solar arrays could generate all the world's present electricity demands (assuming the sun stops moving and we no longer have clouds, and assuming no access is needed and the entirety of that area was covered in panels)"
ah yes, all we have to do is make the sun stop moving and get rid of clouds
cons: Probably the end of all life on earth
pros: that dastardly ball of gas stops moving around all the time

@cinebox Wait, how do we avoid the moon spinning up the planet?
