Heavy rain and snow does nuclear fusion
When we get a charge of 5,000V, we get a 1.5kmx2cm steam plasma linking up the positive cloud layer, with the negative ground! The He2+ accumulates above the clouds, their 2e- falls to the ground.
The lightening strike releases visible light, X-rays and produces He gas – a sure sign of nuclear processes: here Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So we have all seen nuclear fusion on Earth. If we scale it down to a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres, we get 1.2 MW of heat – from 7x10-19cc of regular water in the life on the car. No Fossil Fuels burn – no CO2.
If we feed the heat in a forced draught over thermoelectric pads, we get 72kW of power. This is enough to drive a 4 door car up the motorway at 100mph: 45kW will drive a helicopter, through the air.
No patrol or diesel. And only a minimal storage battery. I gave this idea to Sheffield University 2001 – they could not end my PhD quickly enough: their major funders were nuclear power.
9 1mx2cm steam plasma tube will drive a 100MW power station. Off 10-18cc or regular water a year – no CO2 or hyper toxic radioactive waste.
