The Hydrogen Age: Empowering a Clean-Energy Future

by Geoffrey Holland, James Provenzano
     
 
Hydrogen stands out as the best alternative to traditional polluting fossil fuels for many reasons-it can be produced without pollution, is nontoxic and noncorrosive, and we can never run out of it. It is as safe as or safer than the fuels we currently use and can be made virtually anywhere.

Overview

Editorial Reviews

The Apollo Alliance
"This book delivers. The pictures alone tell the story. The Hydrogen Age beautifully makes the case that the age of clean and green energy, including hydrogen and renewables, has arrived. It inspires with its vision of an era in which tens of millions of high quality, environmentally friendly jobs will be generated...distributed renewable energy can power the nations of the world as they build a more democratic, just, and peaceful global society."
— Jerome Ringo, President.
National Hydrogen Association
Written with the same clarity as the script of the film by the same name, The Hydrogen Age demonstrates the kind of thinking needed by people who are serious about wanting to right our planet's environmental ills. The book is content rich and guides the reader through a sophisticated primer of the events that led to the global energy supply we have today. The authors are knowledgeable and passionate and convey their information in a straight-forward, easy-to-understand manner. This is not a book for readers looking for simple solutions that fit neatly into sound bites. The Hydrogen Age is aimed at the reader who wants to understand our energy options and how hydrogen links them all together.
— Debbie L. Smith, Executive Vice President
Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Letter
With its engaging, magazine-like layout and extensive use of graphics, Holland and Provenzano’s book pulls the reader along for a breathless tour of all the ways hydrogen can be put to use.
Mother Jones Magazine; The Fragile Edge
The New Gideons Bible Or How To Really Save The World. I've got an idea. You know all those free Gideons Bibles in hotel rooms all over the world that nobody reads (how many trees? how many carbon emissions?). Let's start a new movement. Let's, one by one, replace them with copies of The Hydrogen Age: Empowering A Clean Energy Future, by Geoffrey Holland and James Provenzano. It's loaded with stories (and pictures) of hope and redemption that we all could read. Now there's salvation.

"As factual as it is visionary, The Hydrogen Age dispels the myths and shows that we can move to a clean energy future. This is a fascinating, much needed book."
