Perhaps science will save us

Well, that's unless the idiot-in-chief and big oil don't kill the program. The article is about as-needed hydrogen fuel.
A Purdue University engineer has developed a method that uses an aluminum alloy to extract hydrogen from water for running fuel cells or internal combustion engines, and the technique could be used to replace gasoline.

The method makes it unnecessary to store or transport hydrogen - two major challenges in creating a hydrogen economy, said Jerry Woodall, a distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue who invented the process.

"The hydrogen is generated on demand, so you only produce as much as you need when you need it," said Woodall, who presented research findings detailing how the system works during a recent energy symposium at Purdue.

Yeah, sometimes I get not only eclectic, but geeky. That's so you don't have to be geeky too. Kewl, huh?

Those of you who are geeks will recognize the image as hydrogen. The rest of you can just enjoy the pretty picture. To be honest, which is always my intention, I also would not have recognized that image as hydrogen. It looks like planets to me.
