CO2 emission fell 6% last year, 4.5% the year before.
The UK scrapage scheme helped people to drive around in diesels – and they run on biodiesel. Here growing the fuel sucks CO2 from the air – re-releasing the gas as it is burnt.
Provided the engine is well maintained, car disels will go on for a million miles! Wear is less of a problem than petrol cars.
OPEC is desperate to reverse this trand, pointing out diesels produce NO and NO2 (NOx). So do petrol cars – but petrol cars run on fossil fuels. So adding CO2 to the global air. Green plants convert CO2 BACK into active biomass.
So ma's carbon emission have increased active life on Earth: the Jurassic had fewer fossil fuels, but 65% more active life – and sea levels 60m lower, in a warm period.
So the scheme to scrap petrol cars in favour od diesel, save life on Earth – and not affect the trial NOx production of cars: lightening is a million times more important as a NOx source.
If we take a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres, when we fire up the plasma it will self sustain – while we add 2x10-12cc of regular water every year, to maintain the steam pressure.
A thermoelectric generator will produce 144kW – a helicopter will use 45kW – so we can fly between towns.
So Theresa May has helped save life on ~Earth, and should resist any urge to scrap diesels. Does Jeremy Corburm run a petrol car?
