Earth to Mars energy balance

The sun is sending 70 TW of sun shining power to our planet Earth and this amount is responsible to maintain the magnetic field, gravitation, and life storage on our planet.

Currently, we transfer 7 TW of this power to electricity and we are very proud of it but it becomes to be 10% of necessity for the Earth to maintain its life balance and because planetary engineering is much more powerful than the human one, we are going to catastrophe.

Let’s see the planet of Mars, smaller than Earth and more distant from the Sun i.e. the necessary sunshine power to maintain the balance of its magnetic field, gravitation, and life storage is insufficient.

Then we are coming to the efforts of Mr. Elon Musk e.g. how to add the lack of 70 TW power to the planet Mars balance to make it alive?

Stepping on the ground and in order to keep the life balance on our planet of Earth, we may need to reduce the losses in our power generation, transmission, and consumption 10 times, increasing at the same time the life span or the number of our so-called long-life goods with another 10 times then we might be around the square in regard of our planet balance.

The question is how and do we have time for it?
