The Earth receives 174 petawatts (PW) of incoming solar radiation and approximately 70% is absorbed by clouds, oceans and land masses. A total of (174e15*0.7)*(24*60*60) = 1.05e22 Joules of solar radiation is absorbed in one day.

Currently, the average Bitcoin hash rate is 220 EH/s (220e18 H/s). If the S19 miner has an average power efficiency of 34.5 J/TH (3.45e-11 J/H), the total energy consumed by the network will be equal to (3.45e-11*220e18) = 7.59e9 J/s. The network will consume a total of 6.56e14 Joules per day.

Therefore, the total solar radiation absorbed by the Earth in one day (24 hours) is equal to running the bitcoin network (at the current hash rate) for 1.05e22/6.56e14 = 16,047,430 days, or (16,047,430/365) = 43,965 years.
