History of Chemistry: Hydrogen as an Alternative Use of Energy

In this paper I am going to be talking, about how the element hydrogen when chemically broken down can produce enough power to run things like, cars, planes, helicopter, etc… which is chemistry in technology. Right now most everyone is very heavily dependent on the use of fossil fuels and the search for alternative fuel sources are starting to pick up. One of the leading sources of fuel being tested is the use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel. One of the disadvantages is that hydrogen is only found in a handful of locations. They have already started to integrate it into natural day to day living like the power plant in Italy, many car companies are starting on designs of hydrogen powered cars. I feel that the use of hydrogen as an alternative energy could clean the atmosphere it would make us less dependent on fossil fuels and drive prices down to refuel your cars.
Life without hydrogen as a power source is very dirty the use of fossil fuels just pollutes the air and the use of hydrogen would clean up the air. Many wars have been started over oil in the middle east if hydrogen where to be used as the main power source there would not be any struggle over who controlled it because there is so much hydrogen around that there would be no way to have a monopoly on it. Like we do today in the oil companies there a few oil companies that supply the oil and they can drive up the price that is why today there is so much fluctuation it the prices. Without an abundant fuel source like hydrogen there is wars started over the not so abundant fossil fuels and there is a struggle for power over the monopoly.
Natural resources advance the use of hydrogen because it makes up 90 percent of the known universe, it also is the most abundant el...

... cleaner Earth without all the dirty byproducts of fossil fuels put out of the cars and power plants.
In closing the use of hydrogen as a power source because when it chemically bonds with oxygen it produces water and that is used to create electricity and would make it a lot cleaner then the fossil fuels we use now. Life before the use of hydrogen as a power source is a very dirty life with cars everywhere and the dirty fumes they put out. Natural resources really helped in the use of Hydrogen as a power source because it is so abundant and the thing you use to make it able to produce power are very abundant too. There are many places that are using hydrogen as an alternative fuel source now a day but mostly it is still in the works. I feel like life with the use of hydrogen as the main power source will be a much cleaner life for everyone and a much cheaper life.
