In 2000 I told Sheffield University that additional CO2 from burning Fossil Fuels, was converted back into plant biomass within 5 minutes. They ended my PhD.
Yet nuclear power still insists on calculating carbon emissions – like they have some meaning. Extra carbon becomes new life – sucking the CO2 from the air. So the global average is a pre-industrial 2 parts per million: resultingly all academics have lost interest in Global Warming – and never never interested in man-made Climate Change – which is natural Global Cooling.
So for the last few years, I have been going on about Molecular Nuclear Fusion. A steam plasam converts regular water into massive heat, light and X-rays.
A 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres produces 1.2 MW of heat. A steam turbine will turn into up to 1/2MW of electricity.
A thermoelectric mains generator will produce 72kW, from equipment costing $1000. No carbon emissions.
So oil and gas prices are in free fall. And there is less demand for power form coal burning power stations: again CO2 increases life on Earth – restoring the 65% of life that died at the end of the Cretaceous.
So the papers reported 6% reduction in carbon emissions: global average CO2 at ground level is a pre-industrial 2ppm: this gas never makes it to the stratosphere – where our weather is made.
So giving Molecular Nuclear Fusion to the world has done more than all the carbon treaties – which were ignored.
China is opening 2 coal burning plants a year. And America is going to burn more coal. Which will increase life on Earth.
As companies use steam plasma tubes to generate 1/2MW of power, the national grid wilL PAY THEM 150 MILLION A YEAR – FOR CARBON 0 POWER. Fossil Fuels will not longer be built.
Uranium fission is so toxic, every plant needs, but does not have, insurance of 100 billion annually: totally illegal industry.
Sheffield: PhD please!EDF lost 100,000 UK power clients last year. Every nuclear plant has insufficient insurance – even in France.
So British Gas has kept its prices on hold – EDF has raised them. In 2 years it will have no customer;s at all: and still be operating totally ILLEGALLY, without adequate insurance. It bought off its regulators – totally criminal.
