In 2001 prof Z told me that H ions in turbulent flow did nuclear fusion. The greatest science insight ever – which he was embarrassed about as he was still trying to make a case for Global Warming, 6 years after stuff started cooling.
1 2H++TU->He2++E3 TU>1 W turbulence
But nature does not have H gas about. But it does have heavy rain.
So somewhere around the world it is raining heavily – and nature is doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
The He2+ ions rise to above the cloud layer, and the negative falls to the ground. Every 3 minutes we get a lightening up-strike from the clouds – to collect the positive charge.
We then get a 1.5km lightening down strike – this take ½ MW of power – supplied by the Molecular Nuclear Fusion being done by the rain. So the rain builds up 5,000 V of potential – rain is electric.
Then get get 100 amps of charge discharging through a steam plasma. This makes 5 tonnes of He.
3 H2O+O2+e- ->He2++O3-+E3+L+X-ray E3=2.5x1030 W
And we have all seen it – and spelt the ozone, and felt the electricity. Ben Johnson discovered electricity from lightening.
But lightening is very unpredictable – though some areas have more of it. What we need is a steam plasma.
A brief pulse of current at 2,000 V sets up a plasma – which self sustains at 4 atmospheres. Lightening in a tube. Lightening teaches us a 2cm wide steam plasma does 5.8 MW/m – with no CO2 of radioactive waste.
Safe, free and clean power.
A 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 bars, will produce a constant 1.2 MW. We can run a steam cycle, and get 200 kW: Get the steam turbine off the internet.
So we can get a bank loan and pay it back within 6 months. Each power user needs about 8 W – so we will service 240 power users. Selling the power to the grid, get 3.6 million per year. A life time income in 18 months.
One in 20 power users needs to drive a Molecular Nuclear Fusion plant, and we need no large power plant. No Fossil Fuels burning. No CO2 release. And more importantly, no hyper-toxic uranium fission.
That process is so toxic, every operating plant needs insurance of 100 billion: 40 billion since Chernobyl in 1986. No insurance above 1 billion is available – so every U nuclear power plant today is operating illegally.
The biggest criminality in history. Which is why the finance director of EDF suddenly left – as he realised the game was up.
Hinckley point only had planning until 1990. So a Hinckley C would require a full planning hearing – and the illegality of all PWRs around the world would be an automatic legal 'Hell no! Never.'
A conventional power plant can use 1mx2cm steam plasma tube, to produce 100 MW from 0.25x10-15cc of regular water a year. No oil or gas. And the plant engineers could work out the design of the steam plasma tubes in the lunch hour.
The tubes release 5.8 MW, whereas oil or gas burning only 45 kW. Massively low and overpriced power.
Convert all plants to Molecular Nuclear Fusion – it will only take 1 month. And climate 40% of man's CO2 emissions – which only boosts plant growth. The global air contains an average pre industrial 2 parts per million. CO2 – a static trace gas in the air. No climate effect.
All the US presidential candidates are talking about Climate Change – but only because nuclear power pay them to! Are these really the people we want as president?
A 25x1cm steam plasma tube will generate a constant 580 kW of heat – we can use to generate 100 kW of power. A helicopter only needs 45 kW. From 3.6x10-18cc or regular water a year – no trip ever to fill up.
So this will eliminate the bulk of the rest of the CO2. So no change of man-made Climate Change – except from the heat released by PWRs.
When PWRs blow up the create a local nuclear winter – probably the genesis of the Global Warming idea. 'At least we don't heat things up'
CO2 rises in a natural ice-age. The Jurassic had a natural ice-age lasting 650 million years – with 4 times the level of CO2 in the air. Go ask Hillary.
