came in 1910 – when Sebatier published about the thermoelectric effect. This turns waste heat into power.
As a source of heat, we copy nature. Each lightening bolt is a 1.5km steam plasma, that does Nuclear Fusion, producing visible light, X-rays and helium and ozone gases.
1 H2O+TU->He2++O2++4e- heavy rain or snow does Nuclear Fusion
2 H2O+TU+e-->He2++O-+E2+L+X-ray Molecular Nuclear Fusion
In a glass tube, when we strike up a steam plasma, we get a plasma burn
3 H2O+PL ->E2+L+X-ray
The hydrogen ions bond with free electrons, to form neutrons
4 H++e- ->n0
5 16O2++4e- ->8H++6e-
6 H++2n0->E3+L+X-ray twice as dynamic as Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres releases a constant 2.4MW. From 5x10-15cc of regular water a year. Carbon 0 power – no solid, hyper toxic radioactive waste.
Nuclear power made up Global Warming after Chernobyl, and funded people to write spurious papers.
Every nuclear plants needs annual insurance cover of 100 billion. All the Magnox stations in the UK have been shut down – all the 11 surviving nuclear plants are running illegally.
Sizewell B has never been legal. It have had a Royal Commission – so legally it could never start operation. British Nuclear gave the nuclear regulator the biggest bungs in UK legal history.
There is no storage space for used nuclear fuel rods, and Sizewell B has NEVER BEEN A LEGAL POWER PLANT.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube at 4 atmospheres generates a constant 2.4MW of heat, a fan will convert into hot air at 350oC. We drive over a thermoelectric generator, and get 144kW of power.
This will power 180 houses with carbon 0 power. The National grid will pay us 455,760 annually for this power. That will pay back in 18 hours – get the equipment on you VISA card.
The days of the large power plant ended, 2001. When I told Sheffield University about Molecular Nuclear Fusion – but they DID NOT TELL THE WORLD.
Carbon taxes spurious nuclear fiction. Photosynthesis turns the burnt Fossil Fuels back into active biomass within 5 minutes – sucking the CO2 and SO2 out of the air. Ask any high school biology teacher.
