Every EDF power station on Earth needed 40 billion of insurance since 1986 – the year of Chernobyl. The safety recommendations were not made.
So we got Fukishima – and the insurance number rose to 100 billion. Thai insurance cover is not commercially available, No assurance over 1 billion is. We are talking about the most toxic, and least green industry on Earth.
Plants take in CO2 to grow – down to the modern limit of 2 parts per million. So there is no possibility the global average is 400ppm – biological non sense. We would get such a growth spurt! Grass would grow by 10cm per week.
So we are at the pre-industrial level of 2ppm. Nuclear power is desperate for Global Warming to be true – 21 years after the world started cooling. The CO2 level few to 2ppm after the little ice-age ended in 1880.
The warm middle ages saw virtually no CO2 released by man, and the warmest period since the warm spells in the Jurassic. Academics just avoid talking about it.
In 1948 we had the coldest winter in the Northern hemisphere since the little ice age – just as the post war surge was burning more coal, and releasing more CO2.
1976 was the warmest summer of my life – in the middle of economic recession in the UK. So power production was at a low – less CO2 being released.
In the Jurassic CO2 was fixed at 4ppm in the warm periods. With sea levels 60 meters lower, and 65% more active life – when it was less evolved. Photosynthesis on the land and sea takes in CO2 down to the minimum for photosynthesis.
So a power system that does not release CO2 actually supports no extra plant growth – so burning the Fossil Fuels stimulates life: the green power system.
In the Jurassic there were 3 natural ice-ages. When free CO2 rose to 8ppm – once fro 650 million years. CO2 follows the wax and wane of plants, so can only rise in a natural ice-age.
Burning Fossil Fuels does a little Molecular Nuclear Fusion
So Fossil Fuels burning does nuclear fusion. We can double this by Ti plating the boiler plate, or cylinders in a car. The latter will halve the petrol or diesel you burn for the same power. No need fro a super charger – which only increases the Molecular Nuclear Fusion the burning of the Fossil Fuels does.
But we can do better! A lightening strike occurs every 3 minutes around the Earth, set up by heavy rain or snow doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
The negative charge rises to above the clouds, the negative accumulates on the ground. At 5,000 V we get a partial steam plasma link the cloud tops and the ground – a lightening down strike.
This takes ½ MW of potential – but the up-strike release 5 tonnes of He ions – and energy release of 2.5x1030 W.
3 H2O+T->He2++O2-+2.5x1030+L+X-ray the most massive, free carbon 0 energy system on earth.
Hence nuclear power's insistence there is now 400ppm CO2 in the air – after 21 years of cooling – and 4 trillion organisms on Earth taking in CO2 down to 2ppm. The true average CO2 level.
Levels are at 4ppm, above the Arctics. Nuclear power do not talk about this. Or that CO2 in the little ice-age was 4ppm also. In warm periods today, 2ppm globally.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube will produce a constant 1.2 MW of heat. A steam turbine will turn into 200 kW of heat. Each power user uses 8 kW, and sells the rest to the grid. Though they will now heat the house electrically – co no oil, coal or gas burn for central heating.
So each person will get an annual income of 3.6 million. And pay for their power plant in under 1 month. And receive a life time's income in just 16 months.
To be legal, EDF must be nationalised. Then the insurance falls on the French state, the bankrupt EU and the IMF. The power produced will now cost 1.86 UK pounds per kWhr. Today they sell power at 0.02 pounds. But have accumulated the world's largest store of plutonium – the most toxic substance known to man. Which they will have to pay to store for 100,000 years – an extra cost of 12.38 per kW hour.
So nuclear power costs 13.42 per kW hour. Conventional power costs 0.08 UK pounds per kW hour.
The insurance means no private consortium could ever build and get an operating licence for a nuclear plant: all existing nuclear plants are subject to an immediate stop order today – and the plant manager gets 10 years in jail for every year of illegal operation. And a 10 million fine. 2.6 billion per plant since Chernobyl.
Nuclear power is the most criminal, toxic and polluting industry that will ever exist.People are about to lose a lot of money
Hinckley B had planning to operate until 1990 – using the plants managers to extend plant life is illegal. There can be no Hinckley C – after the biggest criminal flouting of law in UK legal history.
