    I didn't know we needed to be a chemist

    or a scientist to invest in energy stocks.

    • If hydrogen cars (and he accompanying infrastructure) become economically feasible, how much natural gas and oil do you think we'll need?

      • NOPE...on this:

        "f we are talking about small, niche, off grid hydrogen production it is feasible, but not likely to be practical...but if we are talking about using hydrogen for mass transit as well as personal commuter travel...then these "boxes" are and will be a joke.

        Have you ever seen a Syn-Gas plant? I've driven past one. Trust me when I say you have no clue what you are talking about in terms of the scale and efficiency of Syn-Gas vs. a shipping container unit which utilizes electricity (natural gas) and then you need to stack the overall efficiency of the powerplant with the efficiency of the water to hydrogen conversion...and I'll even give you the benefit of doubt and we can assume a very high Carnot efficiency for a combined cycle plant.

        Pull your calculator out, do the calcs and let us know what you come up with...."

        You do NOT need syn-gas, you do not need natural gas, you are not looking at what was posted but as expected, just repeating yourseld.

        I will repeat for you.

        ....since you seem to be thinking that Hydrogen is going to need the pipelines that Natural gas needs for delivery...and it does not... pipelines needed either.

        .....and you also seem to think that there is some difficulty in producing lots of Hydrogen at the location where it is sold...and it is NO problem...

        .......All you need is water and current, and a compressor....and packaged like that unit described before....or if you wanted to and were handy could make one.

        This is not too difficult to do.

      • no idea. But i beleive we have plenty. As well our kia optima geta 40 ln the highway. I don't need to be a chemist ti invest in energy stocks. I just need to know that the stocks i buy are good stocks and managed well.
