Hydrogen economy

    Hydrogen Economy
    In his 2003 State of the Union address, former President Bush announced that the United States
    would develop a hydrogen economy. Specifically he said1
    […] Tonight Im proposing $1.2 billion in research funding so that America can lead the
    world in developing clean, hydrogen-powered automobiles. A simple chemical reaction between
    hydrogen and oxygen generates energy, which can be used to power a car, producing only water,
    not exhaust fumes. With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome
    obstacles to taking these cars from laboratory to showroom, so that the first car driven by a child
    born today could be powered by hydrogen, and pollution-free. Join me in this important
    innovation to make our air significantly cleaner, and our country much less dependent on foreign
    sources of energy. […]
    Write a short essay (one page) in which you discuss the following:
    What is the general idea behind a hydrogen economy? What misconceptions do some people
    have about such an economy? Could it help to make the US (or any other country) much less
    dependent on other sources of energy? What might be the obstacles that Bush alluded to?
    If you wish, you can use the posted word-template for this essay, as well as for future essays.
