Lecture looks at hydrogen as alternative fuel

At a time when U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern fossil fuels has assumed ominous new overtones, a Sept. 25 lecture at Bates College holds out hope for a virtually unlimited new source of energy. In the second of two lectures that day inaugurating an “eminent scientist” series at Bates, National Medal of Science recipient Harry Gray will discuss recent progress on attempts to split water cost-effectively into hydrogen and oxygen gases, which would make hydrogen gas a feasible substitute for fossil fuels as our major energy source.
