Every 3 minutes around the world, there is a lightening strike, which gives out X-rays, and produces 5 tonnes of helium gas. X-Rays Abound When Lightning Strikes - Scientific American
This tells us a 1.5km lightening bolt produce 2.5x1030W of power. So nature gets 1040W of power each year from Molecular Nuclear Fusion on Earth.
To confirm this, fire up a steam plasma in the lab. A 500x1cm steam plasma at 4 atmospheres produces 2.4MW of clean, non toxic power.
1 H2O+PL->E3+L+X-0ray no radioactive waste – or life enhancing CO2.
That is the problem with cc – nuclear, biological fiction. Photosynthesis leaves just 2 parts per million CO2 in the global air: levels are higher above the Poles, or in an ice-age.
A commercially source thermoelectric generator will produce 288kW of clean, carbon 0 heat. Uranium fission converts 8 neutrons from an atomic mass of 236 into heat.
Molecular Nuclear Fusion converts 95% of the 10 atomic masses into heat. With no radioactive waste.
Nuclear power is so toxic, every power plant needs insurance of $100 billion. Not commercially available. ERGO nuclear power illegal.
