Lightening does Molecular Nuclear Fusion – there is no other possible source of the light, X-rays and helium gas.
This equates to an enrgy production of 2.5x1030 W. In a glass tube we get the twice as exothermis H fission
No solid radioactive waste. No CO2. Clean and free power – from regular water.
This telsl us that 9 of these 2cm tubes will run a 100 mW power station, if we cool the xit steam on a Carnot heat pump – which recovers 85% of the heat.
So for 2% of the power, we increase the power output of the station by a factor of 9.
With no Fossil Fuels burn. No hyper toxic uranium fission. From 1.3x10-16cc of regular water a year. Clean free power.
