2021-05-18 Hydrogen Replacing Methane Pros, Cons

This Youtube video Engineering With Rosie interviews a chemical engineer who talks about the problems of replacing some or all of the natural gas with hydrogen. Hydrogen has higher energy per unit weight, but it is much less dense than methane so it has much less energy per unit volume. The natural gas system has

2021-05-06 Carbon Capture And Storage Is Important

This article is from 2016 but it talks about Carbon Capture And Storage in Iceland where it is turned into stone in basalt rock deep underground. Towards the end it talks about CCS in general. It’s very important because if the CO2 is not captured, the costs of adapting to greater climate change will greatly
