Hmm, there’s definitely a big media push on to extol the value of hydrogen fuel as an alternative to fossil versions at the moment. Everywhere I look I see articles on the subject, for the home, cars, laptops etc etc. The latest is this Salon piece which gives a fairly broad brush overview.
I’ve said it before, but I really think that this is in some way an attempt by the Western powers to psychologically prepare us for a transition away from our dangerous dependence on Middle East oil supplies. It’s just a feeling.
