Heavy rain produces helium and X-rays
So the turbulent interaction of rain drops produces nuclear fusion – the he ions carry the positive charge to above the cloud layer, and the negative charge falls to the ground. Heavy snow does the same – Molecular Nuclear Fusion at -20oC.
At 5,000V, we get a lightening strike. A 1.5km 2cm wide steam plasma, that discarges the charge – and produces 5 tonnes of helium – as it does more Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So each lightening strike give nature 2.5x1030W of power. So a 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres gives us a constant 1.2MW from 7x10-20cc of regular water a year.
Power with no CO2, or solid radioactive waste. No plutonium or srontium. Uranium fission sprays these toxic elements across a continent every 25 years.
A process so toxic, it needs insurance of 100 billion per plant. No insurance above 1 billion is available. So every nuclear power plant is criminally under insured.
They operate today, as they have bought of the regulator – criminal activity. 10 years in jail for every plant, for each of the 31 years of illegal operation.
Which means no academic is ethically allowed to have got insurance from nuclear power since 1986 – the year of Chernobyl. So all the papers on Global Warming must be shredded, and never referred to again.
All PhDs on Global Warming must be instantly rescinded.
So our plasma tube generates 1.2MW of heat. A thermoelectric generator will turn this into 72kW of electricity. A helicopter only needs 45kW.
So we get free motoring, with no need ever to refuel. When stationary, we plug into the mains, and the national grid pays us 220.000 for the excess power.
Here are the equations:
3 H++e- ->n0 neutron generation
4 O2++4 n0 ->2H++6n0 heavy ions fission into hydrogens and neutrons
5 H++r n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray massive carbon 0 heat
6 H2O+TU ->Er3+L+X-ray Er3=1.2MW for a 50x1cm plasma tube at 4 atmospheres
BMW are already working on a thermoelectric car, and may fund work on steam plasmas as a heat source.
