I recall Jerry Pournelle discussing the economics of the ATO program, but I'd prefer something closer to the source for updates in Wikipedia Space which I am working on. Are there any systemwide total cost estimates, or cost-per-pound-to-LEO figures out there closer to the horse's nozzle?

Many thanks.

Let's do the math: CO2 is 3.42% of all greenhouse gases. Man-made CO2 is 3.2% of all CO2. 0.0342 * 0.032 = 0.1% So, if all the planet went 100% nuclear + solar power _tomorrow_, greenhousing drops by 1/10 of one percent. Should CO2 shedding stop 100%, another greenhouse gas would replace it; dihydrogen monoxide, which we *cannot* control (it absorbs 20X more IR in the same spectrum).
