Chase Boyle Hydrogen Fuel: Sin or Saint? 12.7.08 The idea of hydrogen fuel has been spit-balled around since the early 1980s but only now is it starting to become a reality. Hydrogen has been used in millions of everyday products and now has become very simple to produce artificially. Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements on the planet, yet there are no reservoirs that can keep hydrogen stored in abundance. According to whitehouse.gov (President Bush’s Policy website) researchers are working on a method that produces hydrogen by the separation of hydrogen from water, which requires nuclear energy to occur. Researchers are hoping that with more hydrogen produced the cost to produce it will significantly decrease. That being said, it will allow for the use of hydrogen in many energy-consuming processes other than motor vehicles. Americans import about 55% of today’s crude oil raising the price astronomically (Whitehouse.gov 1). Domesticating the production of a fuel source would allow the United States to become (mostly) dependent on energy. This technology is able to create
