    The day we can use solar energy directly (or as an aid) to make water electrolysis an energy efficient process, the world’s energy problems will be over for centuries.

    Go on, University of Campinas (which happens to be a very pleasant city, too)Report

      That, and figuring out to store Hydrogen at temperatures above cryogenic.Report

        Actually there is a well known process to add Co2 to hydrogen and get methane out the Sabitier process, which itself is a bit exothermic to boot. My contention is that methane made from hydrogen and Co2 from the air is about the same as biofuels but just more efficient in terms of energy consumed. Further the infrastructure is already in place. Natural gas underground storage is well proven to boot.Report

    I’m struck by how well written TT01 is. I can’t know for sure, of course, but it seems like they did a great job of explaining the science to ordinary people without oversimplifying it or dumbing it down too much.Report
