Every 3 minutes around the wirld there is a lightening strike. This produces He gas and X-rays as it does Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
1 H2O+Tu+O2->He2++O32-+L+X-ray+E1 E1=2.5x1030W
The energy release is via a 1.5km steam plasma, lightennig bolt. There is no chemical source of visible light, X-rays or Helium. The only compound of He is a parastable compound of He produced in the lab, using high pressure F gas. None in nature.
We get at the energy from E=mc2 – by Albert Einstein. So this tells us a 1mx2cm steam plsma at 4 atmospheres produces 8.6MW. But in a glass tube, we do the twice as energetic h fission.
2 H++e- ->n0 hydrogen ions and electrons bond to form neutrons
3 16O2++4n0 ->8H++6e- crunch the O into Hs
4 H++r n0 ->Er3+X-ray+L
So a 1mx2cm plasma tube at 4 atmospheres will give use 17.6 MW. So 4 tubes in the boiler, and 4 in the superheat chamcer will run a 100MW power statio n off 1.6x10-17cc of regular water a year. No CO2, no Fossil Fuels – and no hyper toxic uranium nuclear power.
So no natural gas, oil, coal or enriched uranium use.
A 25x1cm steam plasma tube will generate over 100kW of power – enough for a supersonic helicopter. Again no CO2.
Yesterday I was on about passing steam through garden waste – producing enough light disel to drive a family car – off plant waste. You only emit the CO2 the plants took in last month to grow. So carbon neutral, free power.
The idea of reacting CO2 with H from electroysis, would allow a power station to be carbon neutral. The CO2 becomes metahne – to go around again. Thsi involves using a Carnot heat pump to cool the exit steam.
We seperate off the CO2 – the only remaining gas. Turning this back into CH4, and combining it will the heat from the Carnot fire tubes. To maek a Carnon neutal power plant.
It sounds complicated, but all the sceicne was done in the 1950s. So why the hell have we been burning oil and gas?
We recover the bulk of our heat and power – some of te hwater is turned into He and O. So al lthat chamistry and engineering – and we are back to Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
For my monmey, steam plasma tubes are the simplet way to go – and they can be sorted out by a reasonable engineer in the lunch break.
Welcome to the carbon neutral future. And there is no highly taxed or toxic fuel. Just free energy. From a plant costing 2,000 UK pounds – plus the turbnie. Nto the 18 billion quoted for the legally prohibited Hinkley C: which would need an impossible 100 billion of insurance cover. That is a toxic industry.
