Jonathan Strickland, Los Alamos National, Executive Producer discussed on Progressive Talk Programming
To tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer and a low of all things tech, and on November fifteenth twenty eighteen I ran across an article titled quote can we produce enough green hydrogen to save the world and 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 Basel 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 than a Greenway to create a true, hydrogen economy. Spoiler alert. That's just one component of a hydrogen economy. Don't talk a lot about that in this episode I, we got to just lay some groundwork, right? Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. It's what stars are made out of according to the Los Alamos National laboratory if you together all the atoms in the universe all the matters. 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 ninety percent 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 whole plentiful thing, a little more misleading when it comes to our day to day experience. So I you're hydrogen has a boiling point of minus two.
