I agree with Tim on the downside to cloning and genetic manipulation in that it would create a huge class divide between people who can and can't afford it, but both also have many benefits. Cloning human organs, for instance, for use in sick patients who require a transplant but where no donors are available. The cloned human that provides the organs could be created as a blank slate, with no consciousness, so there are no ethical dilemmas, or the organs could be created within some other animal and then transplanted that way. Another benefit to cloning would be creating a younger copy of yourself when your body is failing and transplanting your brain or consciousness into the fresh copy. Genetic manipulation could correct a myriad of physical shortcomings in a lot of people aswell.
Yeah, religions opposed to human cloning are going to declare war on the world if they find out it's happening. Do you know how silly you sound?If I remember right it is against a few religions. If those people find out that could make anouther war, and earth is way to weak for another war.
Have you never heard of solar cells? They store energy whenever the sun is out for later use.Solar energy: Yeah, that works, but what about winter?
The sun is more powerful than any energy source on Earth. Since it's a star, it's a natural fusion reactor. Current technology just can't harness it's full power.And the sun ain't strong enough for good energy.
