Looks like it might have clouted some bl**dy traffic calming.

Nuclear Thorium reactor, electrolysis, hydrogen.

Until they can get Fusion working and generating usable electricity that little combo is as clean and useful as you can get, not that it will make any difference as population increases and so does livestock to support it.

 

Now we're on the same wavelength! :P

There isn't any CO2 from hydrogen, my understanding is the only by product is water. The biggest problem with hydrogen is the delivery method and storage.

You misunderstand - I was referring to the CO2 generated in the process of producing the liquid hdrogen.

What we need is hydrogen powered cars. Of course by the time they are made, sold and resold at a reasonable amount every day Joe can afford, we won't have any money left to buy one because of all the DPFs, horses and car taxes we have had to pay for to continue our daily commute

 

Whether hydrogen-powered cars, or electric ones for that matter, make a substantial difference depends entirely on how the fuel is produced. I.e. how much energy it takes and how much CO2 that source of energy produces.

 

They would at least solve the problem of urban pollution though.

'' and better for the environment ''  -  Not as long as China, India, the U.S.A. & countless other countries pollute the world to a far greater extent than all the diesels in the U.K. put together - multiplied by an infinite amount

But it's the diesels in the UK that are causing high levels of pollution in built-up areas and that's the issue in regards to public health.

 

The other countries are contributing to global warming (if you believe the science) more than the UK but that's a separate issue.

 

Oh, and civil aviation is dumping hundreds of tons of pollutants a second directly into the upper atmosphere but I don't notice any of the politicos commenting on that.
