I've been arguing this issue for YEARS. Folks, H2 isn't a fuel, it's an energy delivery tool! This will ALWAYS be true unless somebody discovers some hundred millions of metric tons of elemental hydrogen hiding in plain sight (or at least easy retrieval). Anybody here ever study thermodynamics? Or learned how to analyze SYSTEMS? Even wind, tidal, and solar energy isn't "free." Talk about how "environmentally friendly" these are? WHAT about the effect on WEATHER patterns; you move the place where all of that energy is eventually converted to heat quite far from where it would be if left alone.

Same feeling regarding throwing problem over the fence. People just look around their feet and do'nt try to rise their thinking towards a global look.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
