Space and Cost Requirements for a Solar Hydrogen Economy
Tech, Low Inventiveness, Creativity - by Design or Default?.

Using high tech to make bigger
and bigger clubs does not speak much for the advancement of
science. Likened to the 5000 year old Chinese rocket concept,
where the principle remains the same (i.e., analogous to throwing
rocks from a rowboat to propel the rowboat forward), only
the technology, the outer coating, gets slicker.
Increasingly today, solar
arrays and windfarms are beginning to dot the globe. While
it is exciting to see the trend toward natural forces being
converted into a clean energy base, I find it difficult to
comprehend how science and creativity remain so petrified,
oblivious, stagnant in fundamental operating principles. The
concept of 'gestalt', the forest and the trees, local global,
should be common knowledge so as to avoid the quagmire of
losing sight of the forest as we explore the beauty of the
trees. Does no one ask why we need so many windmills or solar
arrays for a given energy output - beyond the standard, authorized
given. Could a single, small solar array or windmill on a
rooftop or garage conceivably produce more than enough energy
to run a household and small business? Did we miss some fundamentals,
(macros - integration) borrowing from other disciplines?
Can less be more?
There certainly exists sufficient
evidence warranting research and investigation into cheaper
and greater volume production of hydrogen from water electrolysis.
Methods requiring Low Energy Input
The molecular bonds of hydrogen
and oxygen are electromagnetic in basic nature, which when
the two gases are combined with a high energy influx/absorption,
change form and become water. Variations of both magnetic
and electrical applications have shown influence in loosening,
even separation of the hydrogen and oxygen bonds.
Then along came Fleishman
and Pons, and the "cold fusion" debacle (which Naval
Warfare Labs recent publication of a ten year study, confirmed).
Those not familiar with a similar variation discovered some
60 years ago, an apparatus continuously producing hydrogen
and oxygen from the action of sunlight alone, could easily
pass up the critical clue provided by Fleishman and Pons.
The question remains, who
do we provide the information to? The answers will decentralize
energy and power applications completely.
We suggest a worldwide, public,
nonprofit R&D Center.
