Where Are We in the Hydrogen Hype Cycle?
"I spent a lot of time thinking about technologies that are in their early days today. But where you can just feel the momentum or in some cases the hype building it's generally pretty unscientific exercise as you can imagine. I mean how do you measure the level of hype around a particular technology but one of my little hacks to make it. At least marginally quantitative is use google trends which lets you track. The volume of google searches over time for particular words or phrases so today's episode is all about hydrogen and particularly green hydrogen. So here's what google trends has to tell us the hype around the term green hydrogen really only started to build in late twenty nineteen early twenty twenty. So it's pretty recent but it's been on a steady upward trajectory worldwide. Since then but more interesting perhaps is the geography of these searches. Denmark is far and away the country with the most search activity around green hydrogen more than double the next country according to google. The top ten is rounded out with in order nepal united arab emirates australia singapore new zealand oman norway the uk and canada. The us is number twelve in case you are wondering so setting aside nepal for a second. Maybe somebody can explain what's going on and hydrogen in nepal to me but apart from that the list basically makes sense. I think you could basically group. The country's into three categories. The first group is europe and especially northern europe which is home to i think the most early government support for green hydrogen and where the market indeed may actually take off i.

"Jessica Rosenthal. This week. Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the United States made it official all signing the Abraham accords allowing for normalization between Israel and the U 80 and Israel and Bahrain. We are witnessing today in nutrient that will create a better path for the Middle East. This peace accord, which is a historic achievement for the United States of America, the state of Israel and the United Arab Emirates will continue to have a positive impact as we believe that it's the reverberations will be refracted reflected on the entire region. Youe Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Bin Sultan all night Han spoke from the White House alongside Bahrain's Foreign minister, President Trump and Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu. Israel suspended plans to annex parts of the West Bank and that paves the way for diplomatic ties between The country's ambassadorships flights. Cultural exchanges, business deals, the Middle East has been set back by conflict and mistrust. Causing untold destruction on thwarting the potential off generations off. Our best and brightest young people. Abdellatif bin Rashid Al Zayani is the foreign minister of Bahrain. He attributed the deal to the statesmanship of President Trump. Some Mideast, analysts and experts have said. While the Israeli Palestinian conflict may have been front of mind 20 years ago and prevented deals like these now larger, more pressing geopolitical issues began taking precedence for Arab leaders, Iran and its use of proxy civil wars in Syria and Yemen, the spread of radical Islam and Isis. So what is driving them ballistically? They believe there's been your stagnation in the region because of Iran because of the Palestinians. Secondly, Always refusing to accept any concession made by the Israelis. General Jack Keane is a retired four star general, the chairman of the Institute for the Study of War and Fox News, Senior strategic analyst. They refer to it as a rejection ist attitude. And they're tired of it because no progress is being made, and that's a factor here. Meanwhile, because of the threat of Iran because of the threat of radicals loan, Israel has moved closer to the Arabs in the region. Quite frankly, it's not well known publicly. Israel shares considerable amount of intelligence With the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and with the U. S, A. And Jordan And and they go back and forth and visit each other privately on do it covertly, so it's not available for public consumption. Countries have been moving closer together. Some other factors came in. That also contributed to what one Is the Obama administration came in and for the entire eight years they believe that what was necessary was a policy shift away from the Arabs and away from Israel. Carry on attempt. To appease Iran and bring them into the community of nations so that they would act responsibly and stopped in malign aggressive behavior. The vehicle to do that was so called nuclear deal, or J. C P away on major concessions were made that Iranians particularly The removal of sanctions and giving them back a sanction relief money, which which was an excess of $100 million. That was 2015 general didn't did the country's thie Arab nations. Look at that deal. Look at the Iran deal and say It sounds like you're going to say yes, that that they said Whoa, Wait a second. What about us? What? Where you guys going with this? But what is really strange about the Obama administration. They moved away from all of our Arab allies in the region to accommodate the Iran's desires and number two They put more pressure on Israel. I moved away from them and supporting them than any president we've had since the Israeli stay was formed in 1948. So enter the Trump Administration. They truly did not know for sure. What President Trump was going to do. And I know this for a fact because I was talking to the leaders in the region. Remember, there was a lot of rhetoric about Middle East Wars unnecessary and most wars. We're gonna pull out of these wars. So we gotta stop doing this in the Middle East, so they didn't know what to expect. And they were surprised when his first international trip Was to Riyadh in July of 2017 54 leaders from the from the region there in the room and a paraphrase of what he said is this and this was the catalyst for change. He said. I will stand with you. Against the strategic objective in the region, which is a long and I will. I will help you and dealing with Islamic extremism who has as its epicenter. The Middle East. I am with you on this. Let me follow up with you on what you said earlier about the idea that many Arab leaders were growing frustrated with the Palestinians that they had this rejectionist attitude. Let's talk for a second about the Arab peace initiative because that is something the Saudis came up with almost two decades ago, and it said normalization between Arab countries and Israel is ago if conditioned on Palestinian happiness, really, the Israelis appeasing Palestinians and giving Palestinians you know a state withdrawing from certain territories, etcetera, and to this day we have Saudi Arabia is foreign minister saying We are not normalizing ties until that era peace initiative is met till till the standards of that are met and the Qataris as well. So not all of the Arab world sounds on board. Even Jordan has said. Jordanian officials have said. We also are waiting for Israel to make nice really with the Palestinians..

"The people of the Middle East will no longer allow hatred of Israel to be fomented as an excuse for radicalism or extremism so important and they will no longer allow the great destiny of their region to be denied. On my first foreign trip as president, I had the honor of addressing the leaders of more than 54, Arab and Muslim nations in Saudi Arabia. My message that day was very simple. I urged the nations of the Middle East to set aside their differences, unite against the common enemy of civilization and work together toward the noble aims of security and prosperity. I offered America's friendship. I offered America's help. But I said clearly that the nations of the regions had to decide what kind of a future they wanted for their Children and for their families and for their nation itself. No One could make that choice for them. They had to do that themselves. Today, the world sees that they're choosing cooperation over conflict, friendship over M Nitti prosperity over poverty and hope over despair. They're choosing a future in which Arabs and Israelis, Muslims, Jews and Christians can live together, pray together and dreamed together side by side in harmony community in peace.
