The science was worked out in the 1950s. In a steam plasma, we 'burn' the water into heat, light and X-rays
So to generate 100 MW for a decade, we only need 5.6x10-16cc of regular water. The speed of light is so huge, and we use E=mc2.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube will generate a constant 1.2MW of heat – at 4 atmospheres. We start the plasma using the electronics from a fluorescent light – and then it self-sustains.
So no solid radioactive waste – not even any life enhancing CO2. So very little regular water – and massive free energy. No oil or gas burn.
Russia has agree to quota reductions with Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. But oil is not a cartel now! People can fire up a steam plasma, and sell the excess power.
A company can fire up a steam plasma tube, and produce massive excess power. If they run the plant all day, they will earn 28 million dollars from selling their excess power to the grid.http://www.theicct.org/blogs/staff/end-era-heavy-fuel-oil-maritime-shipping
So they make and sell the power their employees will use at night. So as companies gear up to Molecular Nuclear Fusion, the tonnage of oil shipped will decrease.Note plasma only release heat because they do nuclear fission.
