Not Thorium nuclear power – that turns out to be a type of plutonium nuclear power: illegal in most of the world. Should be illegal everywhere. Devrait être illégal partout.
Lightening shows us the way, as every lightening strike does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
1 H2O+TU->He2++O++3e-+E2 why no PhD for this work?
In a glass tube we do the twice as energetic plasma burn
2 H2O+PL->E3+L+X-ray E3=2.4MW from a 50x1cm plasma in a glass tube,
The hydrogen ions and electrons recombine, to form neutrons. We feed the heat into a thermoelectric generator, we have to entrain lost of air, to get the 3000oC of the plasma tube, down to 380oC, or 780oC.
We get off >244kW of free power, from 5x10-14cc of regular water a decade. Carbon 0 power, with no plutonium/uranium use – and no solid radioactive waste.
The thermoelectric generator costs under $1,500 pounds, and the other gear £200. For a lifetimes of free power – and a cheque for 1.2 million from the national grid.
And the world will never run out of water. We use so little of it anyway. Asteroids dump more water on the Earth every year, than we will use.
We fire up the plasma using the electronics from a fluorescent light. Any the plasma will self sustain at 4 atmospheres.
Nuclear power and academics are livid. Nuclear power is all illegal, academics are totally superfluous. Barak invested American money in carbon 0 power.
