Is it even worth transporting hydrogen internationally? Just seems like a headache The quality of discourse on this sub is second to none (unless it’s about crypto of course)


More PR than bold plan I’m sure. Their Western PR and consultancy agents probably dreamed this one up for them.


The problem here is, that western countries will have the choice from where to buy their hydrogen. Why buy from the dictatorship, when you can buy from a democracy? Sun is shining everywhere. Big parts of southern USA, Spain, Portugal, Greece, the Mediterranean islands, Israel, the outback of Australia… you can build those producing facilities everywhere where you have clean cheap energy. Hell, we could produce really much hydrogen in Iceland, because of their cheap geothermal electricity. The facist oil regimes can’t force us to buy their hydrogen like they can force us to buy their oil.


Maybe THIS is where all the pro-hydrogen propaganda that is flooding reddit is coming from. Big bankroll means big exposure, and the same snake oil miracle cures being promoted over and over again.


We shouldn’t buy from them. When moving away from oil we should not again make the mistake of making ourselves dependent on shitholes for our energy needs
