I’m taking a short break and expect to post again on Sunday, July 5.
Welcome to BlogNotions' Energy Blog

A Top Workplace This week, the Washington Post published its survey on the best places to work in the Washington, DC region. I was delighted to see that the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) made this list. Kudos to the management and staff of NEI for this distinction! The results were based on a questionnaire to […]
There are two big stories this week in regard to new and promising research into cheap hydrogen production and I want to talk about both of them. In Israel, a startup company called H2Energy Now has developed a method using radio waves to zap water and extract the hydrogen gas. According to the Times of […]
In lieu of my weekly post, I’m posting a link to a radio interview I did recently. Doug Goldstein, host of the personal finance show “Goldstein on Gelt,” brought me back for a return engagement to discuss the future of alternative energy including molten salt reactors. The show was broadcast on Israel’s English-language radio network, […]
The Hidden Danger An amusing tongue-in-cheek article in the New Yorker, entitled “Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans,” made me smile–but also made me reflect on the darker truth behind the humor. Most of us, especially those trained in science, find it difficult to believe that other people sometimes can’t seem to understand […]
Honda is shifting gears, so to speak, in regard to the building and marketing of their lineup of alternative fuel cars over the next several years. Honda is saying “No” to their Natural Gas Civic which they have been selling since 1998 and they are saying “Yes” to their future hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. According […]
Even the paper of record for the oil industry, Oil & Gas Journal, got it wrong. With the release of the latest BP Statistical Review of World Energy, media outlets appeared to be taking dictation rather than asking questions about which countries produced the most oil in 2014. If they had asked questions, they would […]
by guest blogger Stan Thompson Dear Google: “hydrail” is really a word, and has been since at least February of 2004 when it appeared in an invited article in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (volume 29, issue 4, page 438). It was used as early as 2003 in an invited presentation at the US DOT’s […]
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to issue a scientific finding that greenhouse gases from aircraft pose a risk to human health, paving the way for regulating emissions from the U.S. aviation industry. Touching off what is likely to be a long and contentious regulatory process, the EPA on Wednesday said it is “proposing to find under […]
Over the years I’ve gotten quite a few comments regarding whether or not hydrogen fuel cell cars will contribute more to greenhouse gases (GHG) and global warming than their gasoline counterparts. Hydrogen car delayers and deniers state it as fact that H2 production and FCV’s will contribute more. But I’ve also gotten a number of […]
