Anyone who has reached the top of a mountain peak will attest its a dangerous place for a loose fitting hat. As we attempt to harness the powers of our planet, location is always a part of the equation.  This factor will soon drive solar panels in orbit, and windmills in the clouds.

When you consider that a high number of opposing arguments are based on traditional aesthetics or noise, the idea of heading to the clouds becomes a profitable opportunity of little resistance beyond engineering.
