It is thought that when you add in all the unaccounted emissions, emissions from using hydrogen could be 20% higher than using gas itself.
We must make sure that current gas and oil producers are not able to move forward their idea of changing to blue hydrogen from gas. Green hydrogen – made by splitting water (if done with clean electricity) is completely clean. There is no point in ceasing to use oil and gas if we still need these things in order to create hydrogen.
Instead we must look to green hydrogen either using electricity, or indeed if progress continues, using catalysts.
There is no point in eradicating the use of fossil fuels if its replacement is worse.
