Wonder if Jetstream could use salinated water for its Hydrogen & Oxygen source?

Thanks, CC! It's fun... and seems folks like the more bizarre and obscure news. Am I right, people?

I second cc's praise - your selections are great!

Hopefully, the Jetstream folks will make use of the hot air produced by the turbines, as well as the "waste" pure water that is produced as by-products (distilled water is pretty profitable these days). We used turbines to produce electricity and heat/cooling for a landfill gas project a decade ago - the captured heat made the project profitable. I would've preferred seeing them use a hydrogen fuel cell, since it's much more efficient, but they probably have their reasons. I see their technology as being a better fit for windy areas - wind turbines are much cheaper per kilowatt than solar, but wind energy tends to be spastic - storing the hydrogen for later use is a good idea.
As a side note, Garrett Turbines in Phoenix adapted one of their older cast iron turbines to use the waste gasses from the Holsum Bread company - turning waste alcohol and methane into both power and heat for the facility, plus, as a side benefit, cleaning up the emissions from the Holsum plant enough to get them off the EPA's air quality list. Win-win-win!

Spouse and I have a rescued rez dog, so we appreciated the article. Earlier in the week, the article about the murders of folks who are transgendered was news I had not heard and was so important to know about that going on, though so awful. You are showing other news sources not familiar with but excellent.

As for hydrogen conversion, and storage, id like to see some efficiency statements, unless there are some secret breakthroughs you wind up throwing away 85-90% of your (green)energy just trying to make the hydrogen, and then eat up nearly as much again to compress it and chill it and store it. it seams to me that one would be better of loosing the 10-20% by just storing it in batteries, or using it as its generated.
