So you fret about the state of plant earth over CO2? Don't. Plus don't wear your emotions on your sleeve and scream at everyone like several USA
Congresswomen we know do. Don't. Get the facts. The facts are that Planes, Trains , Boats and Motorcars can be run on liquid hydrogen. That
technology has been around since post WWII. Yes, its CO2 outgass is ZERO. Yes, its extremely explosive but the experts over at NASA have tamed it. You
can read about that here:
Liquid Hydrogen--the Fuel of Choice for Space Exploration
Saudi Arabia’s Bold Plan to Rule the
$700 Billion Hydrogen Market
Despite criticism and early technical failures, the taming of liquid hydrogen proved to be one of NASA's most significant technical
accomplishments. . . . Hydrogen -- a light and extremely powerful rocket propellant -- has the lowest molecular weight of any known substance and
burns with extreme intensity (5,500°F). In combination with an oxidizer such as liquid oxygen, liquid hydrogen yields the highest specific impulse,
or efficiency in relation to the amount of propellant consumed, of any known rocket propellant. Centaur rocket Centaur is raised into the "J" Tower
for testing at Point Loma, early 1960s. Credit: Lockheed Martin Because liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen are both cryogenic -- gases that can be
liquefied only at extremely low temperatures -- they pose enormous technical challenges. Liquid hydrogen must be stored at minus 423°F and handled
with extreme care. To keep it from evaporating or boiling off, rockets fuelled with liquid hydrogen must be carefully insulated from all sources of
heat, such as rocket engine exhaust and air friction during flight through the atmosphere. Once the vehicle reaches space, it must be protected from
the radiant heat of the Sun. When liquid hydrogen absorbs heat, it expands rapidly; thus, venting is necessary to prevent the tank from exploding.
Metals exposed to the extreme cold of liquid hydrogen become brittle. Moreover, liquid hydrogen can leak through minute pores in welded seams. Solving
all these problems required an enormous amount of technical expertise in rocket and aircraft fuels cultivated over a decade by researchers at the
National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory in Cleveland.
Man has able to produce hydrogen post WWII. Hence the development of the Hydrogen bomb. Now an international American based company called Air
Products & Chemicals is building many Hydrogen plants in many countries throughout the Middle East. Hydrogen can generate electricity for solar car
combos and light entire cities. I am sure the Geenie's will come up with something wrong with it. They always do. Since they always do on almost
everything; has man progressed environmentally since the 1st earth day back in 1970? Nah. With respect to the environment? Nah. Badly. Plus for all
the gains is vehicle gas mileage its be negated by all those supersized people on this earth. Well when Fascism gains traction I am sure they will be
"controlled", or else. My opinion.
In addition to hydrogen we as a human race have made huge gains in Solar and battery storage. It will continue. My issue is that people in general are
slobs. Pigs and just dump their garbage everywhere. Then we roll out the inmates for a highway cleanup stroll.
However, to sequester CO2 assuming that's the next mission to get the Hamsters back into our cage as hydrogen is here, available right now. It can
slash CO2 from coal overnight.
I also wonder why developing nations don't build them. Specifically China. I mean they copy everyone else don't they? USA. Well in USA its obvious we
have too many adult children in Office who are consumed with sex. Correct, and yes they cant think straight so they just scream.
So the next time the person from Sweden does another road show we should ask her about her position on Hydrogen and about all those plants being built
in the Middle East. Then ask her about that proposed Solar farm in the USA. It was at the time in 2020 to be the largest in the world. Correct, Trump
CURRENT STATE OF HYDROGEN PROJECTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST
So, if you stiil want to scream about CO2 don't. Just scream at Greta and the others in politics as they aren't telling us all.
