Original title: Smelling Land
As this project proclaims climate destabilization is an unprecedented, global environmental threat. Yet neither the public nor governments seem aware that any solution must have hydrogen at its core. Author David Sanborn Scott suggests hydrogen will bring a safer, cleaner, brighter future.
Because any energy source can produce hydrogen, using this fuel will allow sunlight, wind or nuclear energy to power cars, ships and airplanes. Why is hydrogen essential? Take just one example: Airplanes can't fly on electricity. But they can sure fly on hydrogen-farther, faster, safer, cleaner and with larger payloads.
Written by Dr. David Sanborn Scott, one of the foremost experts on energy systems. Founding director of the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems at the University of Victoria, Dr. David Sanborn Scott has made numerous important contributions to the study of hydrogen. He authored the influential report, Hydrogen: National Mission for Canada, and served as a consultant to the federal government, major U.S. laboratories and multinational consulting firms. He was Vice-President (for the Americas) of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy and was recognized by that body with the prestigious Jules Verne Award in 2006.
He was named the inaugural honorary life-time member of the Canadian Hydrogen Association. When Albert College in Belleville, Ontario created its Alumni Wall of Honour in 2008 to celebrate its 150-year history, Dr. Scott was among the first nine persons so recognized. In 2010 he was inducted as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. He was the honorary chair of the 2012 World Hydrogen Energy Conference in Toronto.
Smelling Land is the first book to properly describe, in plain English, how the energy system really works - and why the twin energy currencies, hydrogen and electricity, are essential components of any strategy that can steer us clear of climate disaster.A pertinent and invigorating read. Should be mandatory reading for any politicians that have any influence on energy policy.
