So you've thought of all possibilities? How about wind power along the ocean or ocean current power?
So everyone is some on this site. I see.
Your still not getting it...
OK, wind power and wave power. Both produce energy, yes?
Now this seems to be the tricky part for you: If you produced electricity via wind or wave power to extract hydrogen from water, the energy in the
hydrogen you just made would be LESS than the amount of energy the wind farm or wave power generator produced. Does that make sense?
It doesn't matter WHERE the electricity comes from to produce hydrogen. The amount of energy present in the final product (the hydrogen) will be LESS
than the amount of energy that you just used to produce that hydrogen.
Using wind farms, solar, or wave power to produce hydrogen, which then fuels cars would work this is very true! This would be a much cleaner way to
power our vehicles.
BUT, and this is the important part. If you had an electric car, and took that energy you produced via wind, solar, waves, you would have more energy,
because producing hydrogen does nothing but change 100 "units" of electrical energy into less than 100 "units" of hydrogen energy.
It's not the answer to the energy crisis, because it's removing energy from the equation, not adding it.
