Jonathan Strickland, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Howstuffworks discussed on Podcast Central
Get in touch with technologies with tech stuff from Howstuffworks Back home. Hey there and welcome to Tech stuff. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer. And I love all things Tech and on November 15th 2018. I ran across an article titled Quote. Can we produce enough green hydrogen to save the world end quote and I thought I haven't done an episode about hydrogen and the proposed hydrogen economy for quite some time. It might be a good sign to revisit this topic and remind everyone what it's all about, because when it comes to conversations about Transitioning away from a dependence on fossil fuels.

If you were to gather all the atoms in the universe, all the matter, So you got all the atoms in the universe, all in one room. Well, it would need to be a really big room.
