Sample text

This started renewed research into alternative energy supplies including solar power. Hydrogen Safety Many believe that hydrogen is particularly dangerous. There are some that think hydrogen energy is related to the hydrogen bomb. But, hydrogen used as a fuel involves a simple chemical reaction involving the transfer of electrons to produce an electric current while a hydrogen bomb requires a high temperature nuclear fusion reaction similar to that which occurs in our sun and other stars. Others recall that the German airship the Hindenburg used hydrogen when it burst into fire in 1937.

It is also possible that the hydrogen was added by organic processes such as bacterial action. Table 2-6 lists the basic reasons for organic origin. Table 2-6. Theory of Organic Origin of Petroleum ———————————————————————————————— • Abundant and widespread source • Organic matter with hydrogen, carbon, porphyrin pigments and nitrogen • Association with sedimentary rock • Optical rotary power* • Similarity of associated substances in petroleum and organic ash • Presence of microscopic organic fragments • Hydrocarbons in sediments ———————————————————————————————— *Except for cinnabar and quartz, inorganic substances do not have the ability to rotate the plane of polarization of polarized light.
