    "The system was unveiled in Berlin at a demonstration for The Associated Press at the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, known as BAM."

    Let us all test hydrogen at BAM!

    I dislike the usage of the word fuel, even if the word is true to the usage, because it always bring a comaprison in the mind of people to gasoline. Hydrogen would still be a storing product, a physical battery. E.g. : like a lead battery in your car, it need to be charged and will discharge. The production of H will always be an energy losing proposal.

    It's the Register, and it's saying that the reserves are already worth nothing, and therefore there's no cause for concern. I tend to be hostile to opinion pieces that start by dismissing the opposition:

    " It's not going to come as all that much of a surprise that those who worry excessively about climate change aren't really all that up to speed with economics as a subject in general. "

    It has a point though, the stone age didn't stop because we run out of stones but because something better superseded it.

    Hardly a parallel. The use of flints didn't make everything hotter and hotter.

    Caused a few burns in there time, though.

    Back when the total human population was about 5 million there were only 50 million fingers to get burnt and nobody cared but the finger owners.

    The Register is still fighting to extricate itself from a world where global warming ended in 1998.

    Only 40 million fingers... and ten million thumbs.


    (OMG.... I have four times as many fingers as thumbs!)
  1.  
    When I think of the entire human population I think of the PEAR experiment. Idiosyncratic, I know.

    New discovery may be breakthrough for hydrogen cars.

    Study could lead to improved catalysts for producing hydrogen fuel from waste biomass.

    Sure. tell me what can supersede fossil oil fuel and I'll buy into that.

    So let me laugh about all those breakthrough about hydrogen "economy".

    The only economy you need to know is : it takes energy to produce hydrogen. That's it. maybe we can somehow harness solar energy by using algae, but AFAIK better do biofuel and forget hydrogen. We already have the infrastructure for biofuel.

    We really want a breakthrough in some hydride that can store a load of hydrogen quickly and release it fast as well at the moment if it stores quickly it realises slowly.

    Efficient fuel cells will then beat biofuels even butanol.
