>>>The lightning test was inconclusive due to the container being obliterated in each case.<<<

Wow... that just sounds sooooooooo.... assuring that I might be obliterated too! (* ROFLMAO *)

If a static spark can set it off... what better way to decimate a city than to provide a spark and poof... all evidence obliterated too!

FWIW

England is forcing people to test it.

Aaaaaahaaaaaa... now we're seeing what the vaccinations are all about.

They force everybody to comply and get the vaccination.

Then they force people to do something else.

And then something else.

And then something else.

And in the end... we end up in this dystopian (not utopian) socialist run country.

The vaccines were a dry run test to see if people will comply. Just wait until what comes later!!!

The people promoting it say it’s safe. But an article I read and can’t find again said they have already had more explosions. I’m not sure how since it’s not in use but maybe from the pilot program. None mention the coast, but all indoor pipes will need to be replaced and reinforced. Hydrogen molecules are smaller than natural gas so they can escape more easily. 

Burner orfices will have to be re-designed because of the radically different density of joules per unit volume compared to methane and propane.

Generally, hydrogen is very efficient per unit mass - one of the most energetic chemical reactions known.

however, per unit volume, hydrogen is not very efficient at all. Very large diameter pipes will be needed, or higher pressures, to get the same amount of heat for warmth and cooking, compared to methane and propane.

So you can't just hook up a natural gas stove to a hydrogen supply and expect it to cook the same as with propane or methane.

but there is an advantage. If you want to launch cheap balloons, you will have a ready supply of lifting gas even if it is only, say, 50% methane and 50% hydrogen - the balloon (or a large garbage can plastic liner) can take to the sky when inflated and travel quite a ways.

Hydrogen, while it has the widest flammability and explosive concentration range of any of the common fuels, also rises very fast because it is barely 1/10th the weight of air. So most places aren't as likely to go boom like the Hindenberg even in the event of a leak.

The weather service has been using hydrogen to inflate weather balloons since the very beginning, with an excellent safety record.

Name me one promoter who runs around saying... our product is dangerous... please buy it! (* ROFLMAO *)

They said nuclear power plants were safe... and then 3-mile island happened, Chernoble happened and the Fukushima incident happened.

And Europe continues to dig deeper and deeper tunnels to bury all the extract nuclear waste that they mix with concrete and not sure how much more then can bury! So in 200 to 500 years, it all starts seeping back up to ground level!

So you wouldn’t be worried if you used natural gas and were asked to switch to hydrogen blend?
