Every 3 minutes around the Earth, heavy rain sets up a lightening strike.
1 H2O+TU ->He2++O2-+E+X-ray
When we get 5,000 V (Without any Fossil Fuels burn) a partial steam plasma tracks from the cloud tops to the ground. This discharges 100 amps of charge eelctrons. Tjhis does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
2 H2O+TU+e- ->He2++2e-+O-+E3+X-ray
We get 2.5x1030 W from a 1.5km steam plasma, that makes 5 tonnes of He gas – of which there is no chemical source. From regular water!
In a glass tube, the hydrogen ions bond with the free eelctrons. And these cause the oxygen ions to fission exothermically into 8 hydrogen ions.
3 H++TU ->E3+L+X-ray
Here we get 2.4 MW/m. Compared with only 45 kW/m for oil and gas. So we turn regular water into massive heat.
A flame of oil or gas does Molecular Nuclear Fusion today – or it would take in heat.
4 Cm(H2O)n+TU ->(mCO2+(n-r)H2O-E)+(He+O+X-ray+L+Xray+E3)
Oxidising the C radical takes in heat – and releases no light. That comes from the massive heat release of Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So a steam plasma will turn regular water int omassive heat – with no CO2 of hyper-toxic radioactive waste. The price of oil will contiue to 0 – it will never recover. Gas will follow it.
I told Sheffield Uniuversity this in March 2001. They ended my PhD in a hurry!
