Burning Fossil Fuels does a little nuclear fusion. But most of the energy is taken in by oxidising the carbon radical – which takes in energy.
1 Cm(H2O)n+pO2-> (mCO2-E)+(n-r)H2O+r(He2++O2++4e-+E3) science done at Sheffield university 2001.
I told my supervisor on the Thursday, and my PhD got ended the next Monday, as I returned to Sheffield. Something had happened with a boy saying he was me, when I was in bed with my girlfriend in Bury.
He never did explain how I could do something when I was 180 miles away. A cast iron alibi. Not the sort of person Sheffield should employ. He was a nice guy – so who was giving the orders: step forward nuclear power.
There is a far better was to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion – nature shows us how. Every 3 minutes there is a lightening strike, which produces 5 tonnes of helium gas from a 1.5kn steam plasma. This is set up by heavy rain doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
This converts to 2.5x1030 W. I wrote this up and the oil price went down, then after a week it rises again.
It means a 25x1cm steam plasma tube will release 580 kW of heat – a little turbine will turn into 58kW of electricity.
I favour using a little Carnot heat pump to recover 90% of the system heat: the Molecular Nuclear Fusion makes more heat in the turbine. Potentially 10oC. If so, this off sets our efficiency losses and we only use 2.5c10-19cc of regular water a year. Don't try to measure it – it is too small a volume to measure.
So no petrol or diesel. No CO2 – so no Climate Change. Nature converts the extra CO2 into plant bulk. So the people writing about Climate Change should get their noses out of the pay trough filled by nuclear power, and seek medical help. For their untreated mental health illness.
CO2 levels go UP in a natural ice age. More plant life in the warm. They bottom out at 2 parts per million, since before the industrial revolution. Crop yields have gone up 15%. The CO2 is sucked out of the air.
So the seam plasma tube will drive a decent sized helicopter – with never a visit to a service station. No CO2, or Fossil Fuels burn. Watch oil prices crash even lower.
