"Each day, more energy falls to the earth from the sun's rays than the total amount of energy the planet's 5.9 billion inhabitants would consume in 27 years. "
(quote from www.votesolar.com)
Another similar quote from an older book.
"Imagine a coal train long enough to reach from the earth to the moon and back five times. If all the coal on this train were burned, it would produce the same amount of energy that the earth's upper atmosphere receives from the sun in one hour."
(quote from "Harnessing The Sun" by David C. Knight, page 9)
