    HYDROGEN FARMS?

    Is this a joke?
    Hydrogen Farms Promise Limitless Power
    Robin Turner July 24, 2006 (Western Mail)
    - PLANS are under way to grow the fuel of the future in "hydrogen farms" in Wales…

    - Hydrogen promises limitless energy with no pollution, drinkable water being the only emission from its use…But the barrier to a hydrogen economy is production because, to release hydrogen from water, an electric charge is necessary and most electricity is produced by fossil fuels…
    - But now the Carmarthenshire Energy Agency is embarking on a joint project with Ireland to produce hydrogen from trees…The Wales and Ireland Rural Hydrogen Energy Project aims to release hydrogen contained in fast-growing willow trees.
    - Hydrogen from renewable resources like trees can be obtained by the use of microbes to break down the willow into methane and hydrogen gas…Or, alternatively, willow can be used to fuel electricity to produce hydrogen, the growing crops "paying back" the atmosphere for any carbon dioxide produced in electricity production.

    An interesting concept, but can "hydrogen farming" compete with fossil-fuel-generated hydrogen from an economic perspective?

    i doubt it can even compete with a switch-grass generated hydrogen.
