Every 3 minutes around the world, we have heavy rain or snow doing enough Molecular Nuclear Fusion to set up a lightening strike.
1 H2O+TU+E ->He2++O2++4e-
We then get a lightening up strike, to collect the positive charge from all the alpha particles. A potential of 5,000 V sets off a partial steam plasma liking up electron holes on the way to the ground.
When it touches down up discharge 100 amps of charge. This means 5 tonnes of helium ions.
2 H2O+e-+TU+E ->He2++O++2e-
This fixes the organic nitrogen that fertilizes all plant life, that limits free CO2 levels to only 2 parts per million. Levels above the Arctic are at 4 ppm. The same as in the Jurassic.
Then sea levels were 60 meters lower, and there was 65% more active life on Earth. Excpet in the 3 natural ice-ages. Then there was 8ppm CO2 in the global air. 1 ice-age lated 650 million years, with 4 times as much CO2 in the air.
In a glass tube, we get H fission.
3 H2O+TU ->E3+L+X-ray
No CO2, or solid radioactive waste. U fission makes plutonium – the most toxic substance known to man. Which nuclear power sprays over a continent 1 time every 25 years.
A steam plasma tube is twice as exothermic as Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
4 H2O+TU->Er3+L+X-ray Er3=5x1030 W
Clean near infinite power. To set up the plasma, we borrow the electronics from a fluorescent light. Once started the plasma sellf-sustains at 4 atmospheres.
A 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 bar will produce a constant 1.2MW of heat – from 10-17cc of regular water a year. We use a Carnot system, to loop back the heat in a low pressure gas.
We double the pressure on the gas, and get a nice 360oC. So we probably want to reserve the steam plasma tubes, to heat the steam to 824oC.
This allows us to produce 1MW of power. The national grid will pay us 3,000 per kW year. So we are going to get 3,000 million pounds a year. Utilising the electrics which light your kitchen.
And a volume of water too small to measure. I told Sheffield University about Molecular Nuclear Fusion in 2001. How much money has the world missed out on.
There is no need ever to burn Fossil Fuels. Or do hyper-toxic U fission. Clean, safe free power. Using the technology of the fluorescent light.
