DailyDirt: Reducing Carbon Dioxide

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We've discussed carbon dioxide before, and there are plenty of other places that talk about the doom and gloom of what happens when CO2 levels increase in the atmosphere. But there are also a bunch of people figuring out ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and monitor what effects anthropogenic carbon dioxide actually has on our planet. Check out a few of these projects that could help keep carbon dioxide emissions in check. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for stocking stuffers and other awesome stuff.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    The "hydrogen economy" is a lie

    and the "hydrogen economy" has always been a lie! Those who derailed California Air Resources Board, those who crushed the electric cars of the 90's, those who bought the Ni-MH technology and shelved it for cars, is the same ones who peddle the "hydrogen economy".

    If it would work it would be instantly sabotaged.

    Battery electric cars exist today, is much cheaper to make, cheaper to maintain, can be charged at home and anywhere else with an electric outlet, and is much cheaper to operate than hydrogen. Converting electicity to hydrogen and back looses 75% of the energy, and costs extra money.

    Ethanol compatible cars exist today, as any gasoline car on the planet is ethanol compatible! They are cheaper to produce, and cheaper to maintain. Ethanol have better octane numbers than gasoline and have much better range than hydrogen. And biological ethanol is cheaper to produce than biological ethanol. And biological ethanol for cars is produced, and used, in large scale, in large parts of the world today!

    I recommend to not propagate the hydrogen lie, it is a diversion.
