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. Hydrogen is frequently part of that conversation. Today, we're going to explore why that is and whether we can, in fact, produce enough of it responsibly in a green way to create a true hydrogen economy. Spoiler alert. That's just one component of a hydrogen economy. I'll talk a lot about that in this episode. First We got to just lay some groundwork. Right? Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. It's what's stars are made out of. According to the Los Alamos National Laboratory. If you were together 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. But more than 90% of all those atoms in that room would be hydrogen. So at first, you might think that means we're lousy with the stuff here on Earth. And we kind of are, But there's some other things about hydrogen that makes that hope plentiful thing a little more misleading when it comes to our day to day experience. So first pure hydrogen has a.
