They are very weak methods of doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
So we see that oxidising the C atom takes in heat: this pulled us up short when we saw it in 1982, at Sheffield university. 3 pints from the Frog and Parrot put this out of our minds. Go F&P
A simpler way to do Molecular Nuclear Fusion, is via a steam plasma.
2 H2O+PL->E+L+X-ray no solid radioactive waste. No 100 billion insurance – like with uranium nuclear fission: so all present nuclear power SO under insured & illegal.
So lightening demonstrates a 2cm wide stem plasma 1.5 km long releases 2.5x1030W: a lightening bolt – that releases visible light – only possible with nuclear operations.
3 H2O+e-+TU->He2++O-+E2+X-ray E2=2.5x1030W
So a 25x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres releases 580kW of heat. An automotive thermoelectric thermoelectric generator will turn into 72kW of AC – speed linked AC.
28KW will drive a super car. To drive a personal helicopter, we need a 50x1cm steam plasma tube – 144kW of power. Fly supersonic between cities.
Off 3x10-14cc of regular water a year: no Fossil Fuels, or CO2. No hyper toxic radioactive waste.
No gear box or clutch. All AC power conversion via power electronics. People who were given tax breaks to buy diesels, are entitled to a Fossil Fuels scrapage scheme.
