This could lead to many more electric cars, without concern about the electrical generation fouling up our air.

No “Luis Rodolfo Cabrera Juárez” common use of hydrogen fueled vehicles will not be practical for a long time, if ever.

Instead of polluting the air, would we be polluting the earth (underground). What is the danger, if any, of leakage into our groundwater acqifers? What steps, if any, are being taken to ensure groundwater safety?

This form of energy still relies on the mining of coal, the safety of which leaves a lot to be desired. Additionally, such practices as strip mining used in the past, if not controlled, mars the earth’s surface and changes the earth’s contour. I consider this another form of pollution that has not been sufficiently addressed.

The following are excerpts from an article entitled “Time-Resolved Study of Bonding in Liquid Carbon”

Liquid carbon is yet another incarnation, one that can exist only in environments of extremely high temperatures and pressures, such as those found in the cores of gas giants like Uranus and Neptune. Liquid carbon is volatile and thus inherently transient in an unconstrained environment.

As for me, I would invest in the energy that surrounds us; wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, even wave energy. There are no significant adverse impacts of which I am aware for those forms of energy.

The “clean energy” sources are the future. Several countries, as Costa Rica, only obtain 5 % of its electric energy from fuels burning. The industrials companies fear lose their
economic advantages if leave the fossils fuels. However, the climatic change pressures on world, yet. Before thirty years, the fossils fuels will be out. Even in the vehicles, the new hydrogen/oxigen piles, with a 70% performance are the first option.
