How we'll get off of oil

This isn't the first time I've heard the idea: Use solar to create electric, and, if there's no immediate demand for the electric, use the electricity to hydrolyze water, store the hydrogen for later fuel-cell conversion to electricity. Distribute excess hydrogen through natural gas infrastructure. Problem solved.

What's cool is yet another step towards greater efficiency in the process.

Way to go, science nerds.

When nerds save the planet, will we get some respect then?
