The Hydrogen Storage Solution

It seems as though scientists in Denmark have come up with a way to store large quantities of hydrogen gas formed into pellets, which can be handled without any loss of hydrogen.

They say the pellets can be made cheaply and that the hydrogen can be extracted quite easily.

Here's a photo of the pellets. They call it "handheld hydrogen." Cute, huh?

It bothers me a little that this discovery comes from Denmark. Is George Bush's ignorance of hydrogen and other renewables going to put the U.S. permanently behind in the race towards finding the best renewable energy sources? Hope not.
