Royal Dutch Shell plans to use wind power from offshore of Groningen in North Holland to power the electrolysis of water. The resulting hydrogen then replaces the low heating value natural gas pumped in this area as the pumping must cease due to the earthquakes it now causes.
Much better catalyst to obtain hydrogen via electrolysis. Development at Washington State University, where I taught, and at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where I went to high school and earlier grades.
Is the link, in your opinion, a disservice to readers? If so I'll zap it.
No. The insecure redirect inserted by Proboards is a disservice. I have blocked the redirector/spying site at the host name resolution level and now I copy the link text and paste it rather than clicking. The block prevents any accidental clickings from leaking information or sending me to unwanted/poisoned pages.
Someday I may learn enough about Greasemonkey to automagically remove such redirects, but at this point it looks like I'll never have the time. Too much else to do.
Thanks, DBB. The links do work, but they redirect through Viglink to monetize the connection. Apparently, because this site is http and not https (secure), the links are potentially vulnerable. EP has done us a service by pointing this out.
Update (about 2 days later): After a little digging, I've found that ProBoards has converted to https; and that VigLink, on reputable sites such as the BNC Forum, should not be much of a security problem.
The algae schemes I have seen require too much processing. This method does not. All these biological methods require considerable area and for algae in particular, quite a bit of attention. So this may founder for that reason as well. But it appears to be an efficient use of sunlight.
