Why do we ig­nore hy­dro­gen power?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

“SAV­ING to­mor­row” is a catch­phrase that came out of COP17.

We should ac­cept that yes­ter­day is in the past. A new to­mor­row should be cre­ated in the here and now. A to­mor­row with a clean, crisp and in­vig­o­rat­ing at­mos­phere in part­ner­ship with clear sparkling streams feed­ing into healthy rivers and dams.

The health of all life will be se­cure and agri­cul­ture will res­ur­rect to once again be the main­stay of our econ­omy and exports. This will en­sure a pros­per­ous, en­joy­able ex­is­tence for our en­tire pop­u­la­tion with the best of nu­tri­tion, bev­er­ages, cloth­ing, shel­ter and oc­cu­pa­tions.

The fu­ture will be se­cured and our na­tion will once again take its right­ful place among the world’s lead­ing in­no­va­tors. This fu­ture is no pipe dream, but a nat­u­ral re­sult of turn­ing our back on fos­sil fu­els and switch­ing to na­ture’s clean­est and most pow­er­ful fuel, hy­dro­gen.

Hy­dro­gen-em­ploy­ing tech­nolo­gies have been around for decades and the gas can be har­vested and de­liv­ered for free, un­lim­ited ocean water util­is­ing wind, grav­ity and sun­light.

The ta­ble salt by-prod­uct can be sold to de­fray ex­penses and the oxy­gen by-prod­uct re­leased to find its own way to where it can re­com­bine with its hy­dro­gen to gen­er­ate steam.

This tai­lor-made steam will power all our power sta­tions and be­sides turn­ing the tur­bines to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity, the ex­hausted vapour con­denses into the fresh­est of water.

This process nat­u­rally can also power all our ve­hi­cles on land, water and in the air.
