In 2001 I was into a PhD inot the climate, and pointed out a working steam engine did nuclear fusion -and Sheffield University ended my PhD i9n a hurry. We are doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
1 H2O+TU->He+O+E2+X-ray TU=turbulence
So no CO2, and no radioactive waste: Uranium nuclear power is so toxic, it needs 100 billion insurance per power plant. It doesn't have it, so the national regular MUSt issue immediatge stop orders.
In the UK, this is the power station regulators. See Power stations - Clean Energy Regulator
So it has operated illegally since 1984 – the year of the Chernobyl incident. See Chernobyl disaster - Wikipedia
So lightening does nuclear fusion see X-ray Emission from Thunderstorms and Lightning
It also produces helium and ozone gases – as it releases 2.5x1030W from a 1.5km steam plasma, 2cm wide. Set up by heavy rain or SNOW doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
2 H2O+TU->He2++O2++4e-+E2+X-ray the full version of 1
So dribbling water out to a 1m fall into a paddling pool would do nuclear fusion – and heat up the water. A clean source of heat – any physics high school can confirm.
But the steam plasma is the better way.
3 H2O+TU->E3+L+X-ray E3=1.2MW from a 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres.
The tube will beat up to 3,000oC, so sit it in a water bath – as in a steam engine: who's fire tubes also reach 3.000oC. So great to run a small steam cycle. We run at 8 atmospheres, and vent the steam down to 4.
And get dry steam at 120oC: ideal for running a steam turbine. So we get ½MW of carbon 0 power.
The national grid will pay us 1.5 million a year for. The UK uses 44,000MW of power. That is under 9,000 such plants. No CO2, no hyper toxic uranium nuclear power.
There are 15,000 individuals who could set up and run such a plant. So get in quick – or the p0rice of power will have fallen to 0.
So then you only need 8kW to supply you own power. 16KW of heat. We are talking about a 15cm steam plasma tube.
Our 50cm tube ontyl uses 7x10-20cc of regular water a year – we will not be able to measure out life times water use.
No CO2. No Fossil Fuels burn – and uranium clear power have been totally illegal for 33 years any way. It should nto be operating, anywhere in the world. So where is my PhD?
