[liczukhs] L1 sun shield

It is very convenient that the L1 Lagrange point exists between the sun and earth.  Put a bunch of stuff there to partially shield the earth from sunlight, decreasing the earth's temperature, either to combat short-term global warming or long-term increasing power of the sun.

L1 is not stable, so stuff there will require station keeping: maybe lasers.
