Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - The Hydrogen dream
should Society finance a system that translates into a detach from it?

whoa... let's parse that.

'Society' is all of us, and 'detachment' is relative, it's not like going off grid makes you a hermit or an outcast!

'Society' has an extremely valid interest in decoupling from the unnecessary and expensive dependence from coal plants and, just as bad, import dependence from other countries who don't always have our interests in mind, (especially seeing our history in respecting their rights).

 few people go offgrid anyway, as tie-in obviates the whole problem of batteries, hydrogen cells or whatever, all of which will be pricey.

thanks for the interesting diary, Luis.
