Google Greenwashes Aircraft Emissions

As reported by the BBC, Google have updated their Google flights emissions calculations to exclude all the global warming impacts of flying except CO2. This removes almost half of the emissions generated actually generated from aviation. Failing to measure & display these additional missions effectively amounts to greenwashing, and is the opposite of what is needed during a climate emergency :-(

Hydrogen From Tap Water

Spanish scientist José Antonio G. I. developed a prototype system to extract hydrogen from tap water without electrolysis. Pressurized air injected into a tank of water, ferrosilicon, and sodium hydroxide causes a chemical reaction to extract the hydrogen through two additional tanks that can produce 30 litres of hydrogen per minute. Allowing hydrogen to be generated at the point of consumption removes the need for hydrogen transportation.
