I posted the message below on a different thread about a week ago but probably belongs on this thread instead.


If these new batteries deliver what they claim and otherwise are economic to fit in a car- https://news.sky.com/story/new-electric ... s-12192253 then I can see this taking some of the pressure off the infastructure as you would only need a 5 minute charge ...

This particular way of using hydrogen is a fascinating subject, and to all intents and purposes would seem to be the ideal way to replace all of the existing commercial diesel/petrol engined goods/utility/ transport vehicles on the roads today, with eventually private vehicles going down the same route.

Effectively what is happening at the moment is, in order to combat world pollution, governments/politicians across the world have wholeheartedly endorsed electric powered vehicles and totally ignored the fact that their production is slowly depleting the planet of the elements used in their manufacture eg., lithium, cobalt, carbon and copper, not to mention the cost.

I think Bamford and the like who are working on the use of hydrogen in this way really need to be listened to in greater detail by those concerned in the industry, as it’s looking more and more likely that pure electric is perhaps not the way to go in the long term sustainability of this planet.
