Target: Scientists Muriel Andreani, Isabelle Daniel, and Marion Pollet-Villard
Goal: Praise scientist for their breakthrough in hydrogen production
A recent breakthrough in hydrogen production has taken the world one step closer to everyday clean energy use. A procedure that requires just water, rock, aluminum oxide, extreme pressure, and heat will produces copious amounts of this element. Scientists are hoping that one day hydrogen will power fuel cells – and in a few decades, they hope it will meet everyday energy needs without producing carbon emissions.
The breakthrough was made in the city of Lyon, France by scientists Muriel Andreani, Isabelle Daniel, and Marion Pollet-Villard. Using a microscopic high pressure cooker, they combined the three ingredients necessary to produce hydrogen. They then cooked he ingredients at 200 to 300 degrees Celsius and 2 kilobars of pressure – conditions that are similar to those found in the depths of the ocean. The scientists expected their experiment to finish in the next several months, but were pleasantly surprised to find the changes happen overnight.
This experiment could place hydrogen energy into the market sooner than anticipated. It also explains the mystery of microbial life surviving in such harsh underwater conditions; it feeds off of the hydrogen produced by the rocks and water that makes up their home.
Congratulate these scientists for not solving a mystery about microbial life, and for making hydrogen a viable energy source for everyday consumption.
Dear Muriel Andreani, Isabelle Daniel, and Marion Pollet-Villard,
I wish to congratulate you on your recent experiment in producing vast quantities of hydrogen. I am ecstatic to hear that your experiment will help place hydrogen in the energy market in the near future. No doubt once it enters the market and becomes popular, consumers will need vast quantities of it. I also hope this will eliminate the problem of carbon emissions in our atmosphere, as it is a current and severe problem.
I realize that scientists from various fields were brought together to make this experiment possible, and it ended brilliantly. I hope that new solutions will come from future experiments, and hopefully ones that will enable the American people to stop relying on fossil fuel for their everyday lives.
