H2 from Oil Sands
#1
Scientists extract hydrogen gas from oil and bitumen, giving potential pollution-free energy

Scientists have developed a large-scale economical method to extract hydrogen (H2) from oil sands (natural bitumen) and oil fields. This can be used to power hydrogen-powered vehicles, which are already marketed in some countries, as well as to generate electricity; hydrogen is regarded as an efficient transport fuel, similar to petrol and diesel, but with no pollution problems. The process can extract hydrogen from existing oil sands reservoirs, with huge existing supplies found in Canada and Venezuela. Interestingly, this process can be applied to mainstream oil fields, causing them to produce hydrogen instead of oil.

Oil fields, even abandoned oil fields, still contain significant amounts of oil. The researchers have found that injecting oxygen into the fields raises the temperature and liberates H2, which can them be separated from other gases via specialist filters. Hydrogen is not pre-existing in the reservoirs, but pumping oxygen means that the reaction to form  hydrogen can take place.

Sad for Venezuela. All that. Stolen away, again. Nothing for the people, again. Just the brand, again.

And with injecting O2 deep into wells, catalyzing a reaction, releasing H2, no less and much more, what could possibly go wrong?
Humans did not create background radiation...

for eons the living world flourished solely on solar energy.  The tallest trees in the most majestic forests were made from solar energy.  The land and oceans teemed with small and gigantic animal life, all existing on solar energy.  Then one particular ape species looked for more energy.  That ape burned trees.   Then he turned to digging up oil and coal.  The great giant trees were cut down,  the forests leveled and turned into science fiction nightmares of cattle ranching, an animal that ape liked to eat.  In a historic instant, the skies were polluted, the ocean became toxic, the land turned from green to desert.  80% of animals and 50% of plants were decimated by this particular ape species.  https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content...fe-report/

This ape did not notice that 75% of the butterflies have vanished,  he did not care that the oceans had 10 times as many great blue whales just a few years ago, he did not realize that he was killing the very life that gave him life. This amazing ape was not content with solar energy, believing that exploiting every last energy source was essential for his quality of life.  Many of them even believed that their ape life was not possible on solar alone.  Thus, the living world was ruined, and the ape died en masse in utter misery.   Not all stories have happy endings...thats how the universe rolls

The SUN was not enough for human apes!  "the sun is not enough energy, not enough" they cried

we are healthy with background radiation but unhealthy with the same dose from fallout
