A team of scientists from Australia’s University of Wollongong have developed a way to turn sea water into hydrogen in order to produce a virtually unlimited clean energy source. They believe that their system would allow five liters of sea water to produce enough hydrogen to power an average-sized home and an electric car for one day.

    Since I’ve noticed a number of hydrogen generators selling over the web for their cars in preference to fossil fuels, is this a con just ripping off the consumers because I’ve learnt that liquid hydrogen is not only difficult to store but it’s not economical?
