Hydrogen is not found in pure form on Earth, however, so it must be produced from other compounds such as natural gas, biomass, alcohols or water. In all cases it takes energy to convert these into pure hydrogen. For that reason, hydrogen is really an energy carrier or storage medium rather than an energy source in itself – and the climate change impact of using it depends on the carbon footprint of the energy used to produce it. … [Read more...] about What’s the ‘hydrogen economy’?

That is just the beginning, however. Plans are now under way to expand the use of hydrogen as a fuel for a new generation of ferries that will replace the nine ageing vessels that currently connect the various islands of the archipelago. By running these on hydrogen, massive reductions in use of diesel fuel could be made in Orkney. The first of these vessels – the world’s first hydrogen-fuelled seagoing car and passenger ferry – is scheduled for launch in 2021. “We realised that if we could use hydrogen to power our ferries, we would put another dent in our carbon addiction,” Neil Kermode, head of the European Marine Energy Centre (Emec) told the Financial Times last month. … [Read more...] about How Orkney leads the way for sustainable energy

But many of the characters are confused about how to tell their story. Knowing what you aren’t is not the same as knowing what you are. The characters aren’t certain what it means to be Native American. Some, like Dene Oxedene, are mixed race. Blue was adopted and brought up outside the community. Edwin Black was raised by his single white mother and doesn’t feel “Native enough”. Thomas Frank is half Native and half white, and thinks: “You’re from a people who took and took and took and took. And from a people taken. You were both and neither.” For Thomas this split is manifest in his white legs and brown arms and he wonders “what they were doing together on the same body, in the same bathtub”. … [Read more...] about There There by Tommy Orange review – Native American stories
