This is a better chance of working than more of the Solyndra give a ways that are so common with our money. Hydrogen is truly the fuel of the future and deserves developing. Hydrogen can be manufactured where ever there is water. The principal is simple the devil is in the details which happen to be cost. Now to bring it down and make it feasible.

I could not help but notice that someone said give it to the Navy because there is plenty of sea water. In nuclear submarines they have to get rid of the hydrogen after getting oxygen from the water.
