Report Shows Emerging Resource is America's Clean and Affordable Answer to Dirty Air, Blackouts, Rising Gas Prices and Foreign Oil Dependence See solar- powered hydrogen demonstration motor model in action

WHAT: Scientists and experts to call for a national commitment to a major energy policy initiative. Findings and recommendations of joint energy policy study will be publicly released. Hydrogen, generated by renewable energy resources, is the most sustainable, secure, healthy, economic, environmentally friendly and socially compatible new energy option, according to extensive analysis by leading energy policy, academic, and trade association experts and organizations.


WHY: National Security. Skyrocketing Health Costs. Economic Recession. Job Loss. Global Warming. War. Terrorism. Environmental Degradation. Each of these complex social, political and environmental problems requires intense commitment and resources to resolve. While not a panacea, this new comprehensive assessment finds that renewably generated hydrogen is one of the most multi-faceted, positive solutions to these and related issues confronting our society. Strong federal leadership needed to fully exploit this virtually inexhaustible resource.
