Every 3 minutes around the world, there is a lightening strike. That produces 5 tonnes of Helium gas and associated ozone. It is set up by heavy rain or snow doing Molecular Nuclear Fusion
So heavy rain or snow gives off X-rays, feels electric and gives out heat. So it is nature doing Nuclear Fusion, continuously around the Earth.
To study it, we want to dribble water down a 1.4m drop, into a paddling pool – and then pump the water back up. The water will heat up, and give out light flashes and X-ray, as it produces helium and ozone gases.
The heat is about 10oC. The ozone we can smell, the helium we can measure. Interesting, but not useful.
But at 5,000V we set up a partial, 1.5kn steam plasma. So 30V will set up a 1mx2cm steam plasma. The lightening bolt releases 2.5x1030W: do the relativistic conversion of 5 tonnes of He gas.
Nature does a partial steam plasma, using water drops. A pure water plasma using steam – we need to do the experiments. Once set up, we have a steam plasma.
So a lightening strike releases 8.6MW from a 2cm steam plasma.
2 H2O+PL->He2++O++3e-+E2 E2=8.6MW per m/2cm.
In a steam plasma, we do a plasma burn – twice as energetic as Molecular Nuclear Fusion
4 H++e- ->n0 so the hydrogens and free electrons form neutron. We have our own strand of neutron star – the longest lasting 0 carbon energy source in the universe.
5 168O++4n0 ->8H++7e-+E the plasma burns the heavy atoms into hydrogens, and electrons.
6 xH++(>2)n0 ->Er3+L+X-ray r=x+>2 usually 3
7 H2O+PL->E3+L+X-ray no solid, radioactive waste. No hyper toxic plutonium or strontium.
Present uranium nuclear power is so toxic, it has needed 40 billion of annual insurance cover since 1986 – the year of Chernobyl. And 100 billion since 2012 and Fukishima.
And before that there was Windscale, 3 mile island and continuous leaks from EDF power plant.
EDF needs annual insurance of 4 trillion. No insurance above 1 billion available. So the French public and the EU are giving this insurance cover for free.
So every French person is owed 800x33 million. 13.2 billion EACH. And all operating nuclear plants in the world should have shut down 1986. They did not, because of some serious bribes.
So nuclear power still operating into the 21st century – biggest crime in history. It all should have stopped 1986.
10 of the 11 British Nuclear plants are operating outside of planning. Biggest abuse of planning laws ever. Again significant bribes were applied to the nuclear regulator.
Sizewell B was approved by Margaret Thatcher – who never had 170 seat majorities ever again. It was an illegal extension to Sizewell A. This is abuse of planning. Sizewell B was only legal with its own planning hearing. A Royal Commission: never happened.
2006 saw the demolition of Sizewell A – as it started leaking as badly as an EDF plant. Taking its planning consent with it.
I presume it expired 1990 – like Hinkley's planning. Hinkley B still operating 27 years after its planning expired. Totally criminal.
So Sizewell B NEVER legal. It was an illegal structure – as Prince Charles emailed me. Now he is the sort of King the UK needs.
A friend of nature, the enemy of nuclear power. Hyper toxic and under insured or licensed nuclear power.
All 200 nuclear plants in the US also do not have sufficient operating insurance. Again large bribes were, and are being used.
