After Chernobyl, every nuclear power plant on Earth needed insurance of 40 billion dollars: problem, there is no commercial insurance above 1 billion. And the resulting power would be 4,000 UK pence per kW hour. Commercial power costs 8p per kWh.
So nuclear invested 10 million pounds annually, in funding PhDs and chairs of physics and engineering. There is an agreement in higher education not to comment on other departments funded research.
Biology have wanted to say since 186 ['Remember photosynthesis'. This major life support system on Earth converts extra CO2 into active life.
So since the industrial revolution, the burnt Fossil Fuels have increased life on Earth by 20%, but the same 2 parts per million CO2 in left in the afternoon air around the world.
Photosynthesis takes in CO2 on the land and seas, and produces extra plant bio-mass – which excretes O2, and increases animal life on earth.
So your life on Earth is only possible, as plants take in CO2 to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion. A 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres generates 1.2 MW or heat, from 0.00025cc of regular water a year.
Which we can use to run a steam cycle, to generate 200 kW of electricity – and annual income of 60 million UK pounds. Supporting 1,600 power users, with carbon free, no-toxic electricity.
So carbon free power, that generates no toxic waste and global death: not even any life enhancing CO2. You only evolved, due to the CO2 in the air.
There were ice-ages with CO2 levels at 8ppm – 4 times today's static level. Your own beating heart does Molecular Nuclear Fusion – which is why you breath out He and O gases, and you can take you pulse with a Geiger counter: every beat of your heart does Molecular Nuclear Fusion at you heart and arteries.
So the free massive energy system. 16 times as exothermic as toxic U fission. And crucially it requires no 100 billion of insurance. It converts regular water into near unlimited heat.
And a 1cm x 50 cm glass tube with drive a steam plasma, liberating 1.2 MW of free heat. This is the system academics should be studying.
U nuclear is running with 0.5% of the required insurance. And its regulator had the legal duty to issue immediate stop orders 1986. Every year of illegal operation sentences the plant managers and regulator to 10 years in jail, and a 10 million fine – at '86 levels. So by now 50 million.
No valid insurance, and every nuclear plant on Earth must immediately cease. And never restart.
Every academic must return all monies to nuclear power – a basically criminal operation. And no academic is allowed to take such finance. Or they them selves end up doing jail time.
So every nuclear plant operated by EDF should have ceased operation in 1986. It used its money to buy off its regulator – and academic censure. Criminal.
