So all life in this planet has been dependent on hydrogen, and I think that we should follow the universe’s example by using the abundant energy that is all around us. (Also we can produce hydrogen cleanly with electricity from solar, wind, and water, without using coal, oil, natural gas, or nuclear.)

So I made the connection that we could be burning hydrogen to cook or melt stuff, and to generate electricity with zero emissions. Then I found out that it’s already happening. There are already stoves, fake fire places, kilns, and hot water heaters being converted to burn hydrogen.

In my book and in my chapter, Burning Hydrogen, Instead of Oil, Coal, or Natural Gas, I am advocating for converting all steel smelters, pottery and brick kilns, water heaters, heaters, and factories to burn hydrogen. (Also hydrogen fuel cells can power electric pottery kilns and electric aluminum smelters.)

Many of these ideas are starting to manifest and here are some videos I found on Youtube that either demonstrate that these ideas are already happening or prove that they could be done if we apply existing technology into different applications. I found out the all cars can be converted to burn 100% hydrogen gas and they clean the air as they drive, by burning up existing pollution as it goes through the Hydrogen flame in the engine. Here are 2 videos of Roy McAlister the President of the American Hydrogen Association, who has been converting cars to hydrogen for 45 years, driving one.

I also occurred to me that we could be converting all existing coal and natural gas power plants to burn hydrogen, by just changing the burners and the fuel, which would be easier than taking the time and money to build all new power plants, and it would instantly make all grids 100% zero emission. If we woke up to this possibility we also would no long need to waste billions on dangerous nuclear power plants, that take years to build, are expensive, produce deadly waste that lasts for millions of years and can be turned into nuclear weapons, and that are vulnerable to terrorism and natural disaster, like earthquakes, like what just happened in Japan where an earthquake a tsunami as caused a terrible accident.

This video is of a guy starting up the hydrogen/oxygen flames of a very large artificial gem kiln, which shows that we could be doing the same in power plants. In the video below a guy is boiling some water with a hydrogen and oxygen flame and stove, which is what coal, natural gas, and nuclear power plants do. They boil water and the steam turns turbines, which generate electricity, thus it proves that this idea is possible and safe.
