With no NOx! So burning carbon fuels releases extra CO2, which is converted by photosynthesis on the land and sea BACK into active biomass: Leaving a static 2 parts per million average CO2 in the global air. Problem, static trace gases affect nothing.
As people use more diesels, they release 6% less CO2, last year along. And both petrol and diesel engines produce NO and NO2 – NOx. Biggest source lightening and forest fires. Car engines are a million times less important.
Worse still, natural rain washes NOx out of the air – to fertilize plant growth. Leaving a static 4 parts per billion NOx in the air – again static trace gases affect nothing.
So we get more plant growth – to take in that CO2. So man spends a fortune on the Harber process, to fix nitrogen as plant fertilizer. Lightening does it for free. Cars – incidental.
By the way, mineral records show CO2 only goes up, in a natural ice-age. So Global Warming made up by nuclear power, during a natural warming phase in the climate. We have had 21 years of cooling, but people are still earning a living from Global Warming: so have failed to notice the climate has been cooling for over 2 decades.
And then we look at lightening. It is set up by heavy rain or snow doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
The positive charge collects above the clouds, the negative falls to the ground. At 5,000V, we get a lightening down strike.
Which produces 5 tonnes of Helium gas, from a 1.5km steam plasma. So nature does nuclear fusion in the air every 3 minutes. Producing ozone and helium.
We get 2.5x1030W of power. So a 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres produces 1.2MW – 1200kW of carbon 0 heat. With no NOx. Uranium fission produces plutonium and 250kW from a 1m fission tube.
Fossil Fuel burning only 45kW of heat. With CO2. The NOx is washed out with water in the cooling tower. So it NEVER leaves the plant. CO2 is also washed out.
3 CO2+H2O->CO3OH -carbolic acid,
Simple chemistry – the CO2 never leaves a power plant. And CO2 and NOx is washed out of a car exhaust – by the steam in the exhaust.
4 CO2+NOx+2H2O->CO3OH+NO2/3OH so carbolic and nitric/nitrous acids.
That fall to the road surface, and run off to the sewers – they are removed from the exhaust – by the exhaust steam. O level chemistry.
The CO2 and NOx that does escape, washed out of the air by rain: never makes it to the stratosphere, where our weather is made. The natural 2 parts per million CO2 at ground level, never makes it to the high air – too heavy a gas. Gobbled up by plants and trees.
So a steam plasma burns the matter into heat, light and X-rays – no emissions at all!
5 H2O+TU->E3+L+X-ray E3=1.2MW from our 50cm glass tube filled with steam.
We borrow the electronics from a fluorescent light to start it, then it runs unpowered. Using 2x10-12cc of regular water a year. 64 times as dynamic as a hyper toxic uranium fission tube.
As I have pointed out, every uranium nuclear plant needs insurance of 100 billion: no nuclear plant has. 1 billion insurance cover per MW year. So all nuclear power ILLEGAL.
So a steam plasma is free, carbon and nitrous 0 power. I told Sheffield University about Molecular Nuclear Fusion in 2001 – they suggested I really shiould be singing on stage. But didn't give me the PhD I had earned.
