New research published in Energy Science and Engineering warns that so-called blue hydrogen has a greater carbon footprint than fossil fuels.

Robert Howarth, a Cornell University professor and co-author of the study, said: “Political forces may not have caught up with the science yet.

“Even progressive politicians may not understand for what they’re voting. Blue hydrogen sounds good, sounds modern and sounds like a path to our energy future. It is not.”

The study found that hydrogen creation emits 20% more carbon that using either natural gas or coal directly for heat, and 60% more carbon than using diesel.
