‘Sunshade’ Could Ease Global Warming

For those hot days at the ocean, a beach umbrella can help block the sun’s heat and ultraviolet radiation. Now an orbiting sunshade could do the same for the planet, in the event of a global warming emergency.

The sunshade, proposed by Roger Angel of the University of Arizona in a recent issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, would be made of trillions of transparent, platter-sized spacecraft flying together in an elliptical formation.

Like a light-blocking cirrus cloud, the flock of spacecraft would diffuse about two percent of the sun’s energy away from the Earth.


As 2007 looms, ask yourself this; “What am I doing to protect myself from all those things that prevented me from have a sunny and spectacular 2006?”

Did you work too hard on prospects that didn’t turn out to be legitimate buyers?

Get beat out by competitors that had cheaper or weaker products?

Are you just thinking that you could be getting to be a better salesperson, but not sure what to do to get there?


Talk to a sales coach, attend a seminar, ask someone for book or audio recommendations (my bias is that Sales Autopsy, the book, can help speed up your success – go to BN.com or Amazon.com for it).

Get into the light and out of the darkness. Stop hiding from your limitations, confront them and have a sunny and spectacular 2007.

And, Happy & Merry Everything!
