    Oddly enough, I suspect that DJT would not be very good at the real thing:

    There are cheaper ways to produce hydrogen discovered recently.

    Is this newly discovered hydrogen any better than the old stuff?

    It's cheaper to produce it uses rust.

    You can convert rust (iron oxide) to hydrogen? That is new.

    So many words--Joe can apparently gab for 15 minutes nonstop about something that could be summarized on a single sheet of paper with a 2 minute read.

    It's a valuable - or at least well-paid - talent.

    Just a weakness of the YT model, which encourages overly-long videos.

    It's been suggested many times. The problem is the inefficiency of the N₂ triple bond--it takes energy to synthesize NH₃ and it takes more energy to decompose it into H₂ and N₂. And it's quite corrosive to living tissue.

    Despite the many advantages presented by ammonia, there has been relatively little research on producing high-purity hydrogen from ammonia and generating electricity in conjunction with fuel cells.

    The research team at KIST developed a low-cost membrane material and a catalyst for decomposition of ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen. By combining the catalyst and membrane, the research team created an extraction device that is capable of decomposing ammonia and separating pure hydrogen at the same time. With the developed technology, it is possible to continuously produce high-purity hydrogen, and it can even be applied to small power generation devices by directly connecting it with fuel cells without any additional hydrogen purification processes.

    Well, you get a petrol leak in your car, it's inefficient, polluting and annoying. Get an ammonia leak and it's hospital for you--or the morgue.

    You can say that about gasoline as well.

    Tons of ammonia is safety handled each year as it is an important fertiliser and chemical.

    Something useful to produce when there is to much wind energy.
