The power cartel
Nuclear power could only seem to make economic sense when oil was a $100 a barrel. So when it fell below $25, nuclear power started buying oil, to sell at a loss.
This is classic cartel behaviour and is illegal. The national power regulators have the duty to pt the nuclear managers behind bars.
After Fukishima every nuclear power plant needs insurance cover of 100 billion: it was 40 billion after Chernobyl in 10986. There is no commercial insurance abo9ve 1 billion. So nuclear power put its money into Global Warming.
CO2 would warm the air and kill us all. This is stupid! Plants on the land and seas take inn extra CO2 within 5 minutes, and build plant mass. So the average CO2 level in the global air is fixed at a pre-industrial 2 parts per million.
Levels are higher above the Arctics and in a natural ice-age. So in the little ice-age of the 18th century, we were back to a Jurassic levels of 4 parts per million.
The Jurassic has three ice-ages, with CO2 at 8 parts per million. So CO2 follows global cooling.
Why did nuclear get it so wrong/ Because after Chernobyl we were in a NATURAL warming phase. With CO2 at 2ppm. Nuclear power PAID people to say there was 400ppm CO2 in the air. Not possible – ask any gardener.
The extra 0.00004% CO2 from man, ends up as extra life – sucking the CO2 out of the air. The Jurassic had 65% more active biology.
Biology which formed the Fossil Fuels, at the end of the Jurassic.
A steam plasma tube does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
Power with no CO2, or hyper toxic radioactive waste. A 50x1cm steam plasma tube generates a nice 4.8 MW. I have not tried yet (Next month) but that should generate 1 MW, from 8x10-17cc of regular water a year.
Carbon free power. Suddenly burning oil and gas seem massively over priced – ask Venezuela. With no toxic plutonium to spray over the content every 25 years. Windscale, 3 Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukishima.
Any every nuclear plant only carries 50 million in insurance. 0.05% of the required level. So the National regulator had the legal imperative to issue immediate stop orders in 1986. The legal penalties are 10 years in prison, and a 10 million fine (1984 levels) for every year of illegal operation.
For the plant managers and the regulator. So no private nuclear facility can operate anywhere around the world.
So all British nuclear became illegal in 2006, under Tony Blair. Surely the most serous criminal who has ever served as PM.
