Interesting hydrogen news
The world is going to need a variety of energy sources in the future as fossil fuels become scarcer and/or more expensive to extract and use. While pure electrical solutions (derived from photovoltaics, wind, etc.) have been getting the lion's share of attention, hydrogen as a fuel is likely to be key for certain use cases. This discovery by Stanford researchers is a very small, early step, but systematic reductions in the cost of extracting, storing, transporting, and using hydrogen will be necessary to propel its use as an alternative fuel.
Sidenote: In any article about energy, it's pretty amusing to read the inevitable comments from those who view energy single-mindedly, in this case, believing there's only one right technology - be it battery-stored electricity or hydrogen fuel cells - worth focusing on. So therefore, they fiercely defend it while denigrating alternatives. It's like arguing that there's only one right species, when in reality, we live in a world more diverse and complex than we can imagine.
