Hydrogen: The Savior of the Shipping Industry

To learn more about the fight to stop climate change go to https://gatesnot.es/3dkhdhH. Thanks to Bill Gates and Breakthrough Energy for supporting this episode of SciShow.

Huge container ships relying on fossil fuels transport all kinds of goods across the ocean, creating a huge climate change impact. But there's a better way to power this transport using, of all things, water.

One thing we do have access to, is lots of hydrogen; by product oxygen.

The aft side of the "nacelles", where the drawings show a something like a vent, or something. Probably too small.

Obviously some heat can be used for hotel loads.

What is the rule concerning Gyazo links? For those who may not know, Gyazo is an app that allows one to take a picture of your screen and share it on the web. The picture of your computer screen goes up on a website. allowing one to share it with others.

If you do a link show the entire link and say what it leads to.

Go for it!


Edit:
Imperial Law is available from the COTI Features at the top of the page:
http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Dis...?faq=cotirules

Excerpts:

11) Clear Link Requirement
Links must clearly indicate both the type of content (video, HTML, PDF, other document type), and destination (to at least the http://xxx.xx.xx level.)


Links
Links need to have a clear indication where it goes to in the link text.
"Click here" (and anything similar) is not an acceptable link text. No use of URL proxies like go.to// or youtu.be// - those are not clear.

A video needs to mention what the content of the video is. A document file should have a title reference.


Images
Please do not imbed large images (over 400 pixels wide) in posts using the [img] tag. Please, use either a [url] or [imgw=400] tag.

A Beowulf is less than 50 meters long. Is it small enough to make the need for an AC set up superfluous?
No. Considering the smallest SSN the US Navy built was 2,649 metric tons submerged (189 dTons), the size of the ship is irrelevant. The other advantage of AC is you can step up and step down the voltage as required.

So, one motor generator for the shore power connection.
Not quite. More like a connection for each.

And the mimic bus will be in the image gallery on my blog.
