Two billion times the annual world energy consumption, or thereabouts.

“The energy released in these explosions is phenomenal; about two billion times the annual world energy consumption in just a fraction of a second.”

Says David Long, referring to the amount of energy used in a recently detected “solar tsunami”.

Anyone up for installing a few turbines in the sun’s atmosphere?
