Around the world riht now, heavy rain sets up for lightening strikes, by doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
So rain or snow does Molecular Nuclear Fusion. At atmospheric pressure and down to -20oC. The pressure in a lightening bolt starts at 8 atmospheres, and collapses at 4. So 8 atmospheres and – 20oC does nuclear fusion, on Earth right now. No 100 billion annual cost – for free. In the air. So expensive fusion torous.
Prof Z gave me the answer here in 2001. We do not want linear flow – we want turbulent flow – like on sun's coronas – also in steam venting from the deep, as we see a volcanic eruption of Earth quake. So you need TU>1W.
To stop the next big one in California, use ground sonar, and locate the magma chambers along the San Andreas fault.
Drill down, and enter the chamber from below – ground sonar and modern drilling techniques can do this.
Pass through a regardised Dyson dry cleaner, and scrub out the heavy metals – 40% gold dust. A rich gold ore is only 1% gold. We will also get Pt, Au, Cu, and Fe. Produce metal ingots of the heavy metal – warning, gold will rapidly cease to have any global value.
China can do this, to produce free gold and power – as it like gold.
We then p-ass the clean steam though a steam turbine, and then vent the steam to the air. We get an inexhaustible source of fresh water, 200km from the sea. Without relying on natural rain falls.
So we generate 40MW of power – or we can have 3 such plants, to give us 120Mw of power. For free, with no Fossil Fuels burn.
Lightening release 5.8MW/m from a 2cm steam plasma. Using 5x10-16 of regular water as year. This is such a tiny volume of water, we will never measure it. The plant off machine will use 5 million cc of water, every million years.
And no oil or gas burn. No CO2 – natural Global Warming ended in 1995. The world has experienced 21 years of cooling – and CO2 is capped at 2 parts per million – by global photosynthesis.
In the Jurassic there were fewer Fossil Fuels. There was 65% more active life, and sea levels were 60 meters lower in a warm period – with 4ppm CO2 in the air.
The Jurassic had 3 natural ice-ages. Where CO2 reached 8ppm: 1 ice-age lasted 650 million years. So CO2 is limited by photosynthesis – which in the Jurassic was less efficient – so left twice the CO2 in the air. CO2 skied at 4ppm, was in the little ice-age of the 18th century. A static trace gas affects nothing – drive on! You are having no effect on the weather.
Drive a car driven by a steam plasma tube – no petrol or diesel burn. This is why the petrol industry put money into Global Warming. As fuel prices are highest, when you sell least of it – so the oil countries made most money.
Even today, they are all losing money. Saudi Arabia needs whole sale oil prices above $60 a barrel to make money. They are dragging along at $30.
When people start using steam plasmas to drive a car, it will drop to $0 a barrel. The car uses a seam plasma tube in a water boiler.
It produces power, which drives a motor on each wheel axle. No gear box or clutch – it is all driven by power electronics. It will cost $1,200 a car – as against $3,500 for a Fossil Fuels burn. And it would produce no CO2.
All they power stations are using 2cm x 1m steam plasma tubes – so 9 will drive a 100MW power station – we use a helical turbulence heat exchanger, to drive a Carnot heat pump, so we recover 85% of the steam heat.
So no global oil, gas or coal burn. We just u7se a minuscule volume of regular water, to drive steam plasma tubes. We boil off river or sea water, to give us an endless source of pure water. No not oil, gas or coal burn.
Saudi Arabia will revert to agriculture – which made it a rich country in the days of the Roman empire.
So to do nuclear fusion in a fusion torous, we insert perpendicular magnetic fields, to give the steam a twist as it rotates – so gong us turbulence. And so Molecular Nuclear Fusion. The infinite free energy source.
All the physics professors look a bit stupid – a professor of chemical engineering gave me the idea 15 years ago. Which I published on the internet. And was read by every physics academic in the world.
