To seperate hydrogen from oxygen takes electricity, to use hydrogen to power a car is the reverse process of electrolysed, which means to put the hydrogen back with oxygen, that process produce electricity that can power the car.

Isn’t that cool?
The project is currently founded by three major car companies including Daimler Chrysler.
While listening an image kept on popping up in my head. It was an image of the Texas Econamy versus Iceland Econamy.

Just imagine how many people’s wealth depends on people continue to use the dirty fossil fuels.
An iceland professor on the show stated that he expected this change will take three generations with him being the first. “Hopefully our grandchildren will be able to live in a much cleaner and peaceful world than us.”

Now I want to visit Iceland! 🙂
