Plants today gobble up CO2 down to 2 parts per million – levels are at 4 ppm above the Arctic. So burning the Fossil Fuels turns them back into active biology within 5 minutes. No increase of CO2 in the global air possible.
Lightening turns regular water into He and O gases, plus massive heat
There is no chemical source of He or X-rays. Each lightening bolt releases 2.5x1030 W, every 3 minutes throughout the year.
In a glass tube, we get H fission, rather than Molecular Nuclear Fusion: Twice the energy.
3 xH++e- ->(x+1)n0 usually x=1 – so we get out 2 neutrons
4 16O2++s n0 → 8h++6n0
5 xH++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray
The X-ray are low energy, and never leave the plant.
We get around 5 MW of heat. We use to drive a steam cycle. So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube generates about 1 MW of power: We use a Carnot heat pump, to return 85% of the system heat back to the water boiler – so we should get 8.5 MW.
This is the power for 1,000 home power users. Companies use 5 such tubes, and generate 40 MW. Their own 20kW is totally unimportant.
The national grid with pay 3,000 per kW year. So we will get an annual income of 15 million. Why do anything else? Massive free, carbon 0 power.
Power with no CO2, or hyper toxic radioactive waste. And 32 times the energetic nature of hyper toxic uranium fission.
My thanks for prof Zs contribution to this idea – before he ended my PhD at Sheffield University – for no reason.
So Hilary Clinton can now celebrate – nuclear fusion has been developed. Power with no CO2 or toxic plutonium. Free carbon 0 power. Each garage hobbyist can generate a life times income in 14 months.
All politicians take money
No reason ever to burn oil or gas. But everybody will be generating power – so nobody will buy it. All politicians are paid massive money to talk up Climate Change – once the world started cooling naturally 21 years ago.
They are not scientists. The scientists say nothing – but keep all the Global Warming funding nuclear power gave them, via the funding agencies.
