The Clearest Written Vision of a 
Solar Hydrogen Civilization
by Hydrogen World Authority and Pioneer
Roy McAlister

Solar Hydrogen Civilization is a great book because a great man wrote it.
I have known and worked with Roy McAlister for over 10 years.  He has been my true friend and mentor and I can tell you for a fact that he is a living legend.  Roy will be known in the history of energy more prominently than Edison, Westinghouse, Tesla, Rockefeller, Carnegie and the rest combined.   Roy is an expert in Inorganic, Organic, Electro, Thermal and Bio Chemistry, Newtonian and Quantum Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Material Science and Advanced Composites.  He is an expert who writes, not a writer who thinks he's an expert.

Roy has the wonderful goal to make a 1000 new millionaires a week.  That is the amount of money you can make in the hydrogen field by displacing oil imports.    This book is the beginning to understanding some of the secrets of the energy field and its future that is happening today as you read this.  

The Million Dollar Drawing ( Left )
Roy has a wonderful saying, " Prosperity Without Pollution."  So few words say so much which are not understood by so many.  Too many in the hydrogen field just focus on the last word.  Pollution. They totally ignore the real power word in the sentence, which is Prosperity.  Roy teaches that Hydrogen creates a wealth expansion economy.  Value is created rather than just a service being performed.  When a gallon of oil is taken and the hydrogen is removed and the carbon is used to construct buildings, wires, aircraft and really almost anything else then both transportation and physical goods are created.  Just burning oil creates transportation, a service, not a wealth creating product.  Think of the idea of taking aluminum and steel from a gallon of oil before you turn it into gasoline, how much would that be worth.?  Carbon replaces iron and steel and makes the same things these metals can.
When you see the word CARBON, in any form, CO2, CO etc.. I do not want you to think pollution or environment, I want you to thin MONEY.  Anytime you can keep your carbon, you make money.  If you could trap the CO2 from your tailpipe or your furnace, you can SELL IT.  There is a world market for CO2, CO and C and this is nothing compared to what it WILL BE in the future.  Every pound of CO2, CO or C you trap you can sell.  Remember in the 1970's plastics were the future.  Today, we can say CARBON is the future. REALLY understanding the diagram to the left, and putting yourself on one of the arrows with the Carbon word on it, can make you a very wealthy person.  To REALLY understand this, you will have to get the book.

The Best Synopsis of Fuel Cells Written
I have been building a personal library of hydrogen and solar related books for most of my professional life and I have to say that Roy's summery of the different types of fuel cells is the best ever written.  I bet you did not even know there were different types of fuel cells?  Today, what you hear about mostly are Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells, the fuel cells on the Apollo space mission were Alkaline Fuel Cells, the large fuel cells used for some buildings right now are Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells.  I bet you've never heard of a Molten Carbonate fuel cell or a solid oxide fuel cell.  I have a secret for you as well.  There is something out there right now, that is MORE efficient than these fuel cells and is 100 times cheaper.  What is MORE efficient and cleaner than a fuel cell?  That's a secret for us experts to know, but its in Roy's book if you can find it in there. I'll give you a hint, its the reason you WILL NOT have a fuel cell vehicle or a fuel cell in your house, but something better.

Hydrogen is a DANGEROUS Journey with Mines in the Road.
Ok. You are excited about Hydrogen, about the future about the science and the economics of it.  You want to learn more and travel the road, but it is hard, long and dangerous and it has mines in the road.  Why is it dangerous?  NOT  because of the Hydrogen.  It is dangerous because of the lies, myths and ignorance surrounding the hydrogen field.  These are like mines in the road.  You see a spot in the road and you don't know if its a mine or just a lump of dirt.  Roy's book tells you where the mines are in the road so you can travel safely.  There are more myths than there are truths about hydrogen.  The science is clear, the science is 200+ years old.  The lies get reinvented every year.  Water cars, why the Hindenburg burned, hydrogen safety and much more. Roy clearly and easily tells you the myth and why it is a myth. He tells you the real science.  So when someone tries to get your money for magnets or a water car or for something like this, you know not to waste your time and to tell them to take a hike.

Myth Example & Great Illustrations & Great Teaching in the book.
As I sit here and write this ad for Roy's book, I just had someone write to me about making an engine run on water.  They said that supplying the water would not be a problem and they had enough water to keep the engine running forever and they wanted me to tell them how to do it.  They said that they knew they could use the energy from the alternator to split the water and run the vehicle.  This is called a violation of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics.  It won't work.  You get out less than you put in.   This is clearly illustrated in Roy's book.  Pay particular attention to the usage of the diagrams and illustration and reinforcement by example.  You do not have to be a college graduate to read this book.  Anyone can read and understand the fundamental principles of the science and the economics behind the hydrogen future. Roy's gift for explanation and teaching is continually used throughout the book for the benefit of the reader.

Don't Tell Me.... SHOW ME.
Show me is what is done in the book.  In the area of the book regarding Hydrogen storage it is one thing to talk about future super tanks made of carbon fiber and current tanks of fiber glass and aluminum and then there old fashioned are steel tanks.  The remarkable statement is that steel tanks hold hydrogen just fine.  We make steel tanks by the millions today.  These are at world record low prices.  You can go get one today in almost any city in the USA.  These are DOT rated and safer than a gas tank full of gasoline.  Ok..that's great.  Nice statement.  This is where other people would stop in their books.  Roy's book SHOWS YOU.  Roy has a tank here that is dated 1917.  This tank has held hydrogen its entire life.  It was probably used for fueling blimps back during and after World War ONE !   Yes, I said World War One.  Roy is a certified professional engineer (P.E.) and a metallurgist.  He is qualified to inspect, test and certify pressure vessels legally.  He has sampled, tested and verified the metallurgy and the safety of this hydrogen tank.  It passes with flying colors and he still uses this same tank today.  So much for the myth and the lies of steel not being able to safely hold diatomic hydrogen molecules.  

Energy Parks & the Road to the Hydrogen Future.
The book outlines fundamental strategies and methods that are achievable for business.  The book outlines with maps and details the location and types of energy parks.  The usage of current natural gas pipe lines, the harvesting of methane hydrates and then the harvesting of the carbon from the methane and the piping of the hydrogen.  The use of the carbon to make ANYTHING that is around you now.  The recapture of methane from biological and agriculture by products.  This gives today's farmers a new crop to grow, energy.  The book discusses and illustrates the storage of hydrogen in underground oil and gas wells that are currently empty.  Solar hydrogen can restock the energy that was in the ground.  The real role of wind and wave energy, is it viable or a red herring?  its in the book.   The future configuration of homes with hydrogen based energy, how is the energy obtained, used and reused.   You will quickly begin to realize that we you now think of as waste, is really a resource.   The history of the worlds largest business,. especially the chemical industry,  have started from the re-use of someone else's waste product.  There is waste around you today that are dollar signs for all of us tomorrow.  The page to the left is a classic example of the fine graphics and illustration that enrich Roy's book.  There is hardly an open set of pages without an illustration, photograph or table. The book is rich in content.

A Hydrogen BBQ?
Yes, a hydrogen BBQ.  As we all get caught up in fuel cells and vehicles and home power and 1000 square mile solar fields and politics it is so easy to loose track of the simple demonstrations and usages of hydrogen.   In the middle of every class Roy gives he provides lunch and lunch is cooked on a Hydrogen BBQ.  Some of the finest chefs in the world have learned that cooking on hydrogen does not impart any bad flavors into what is being cooked and since the by product of hydrogen combustion is water vapor the food is even more moist and flavorful.  The books shows the simple basics of how to convert a BBQ to hydrogen which emphasizes how easy home appliances can run on hydrogen.  
Hydrogen as a Lifting Agent - Hydrogen Balloons !
Ah.. One of my personal favorite subjects. Flying in a lighter then air lifting body filled with Hydrogen.  Before you say the word Hindenberg and I'm forced to slap you go read the section on myths in the book regarding the Hindenberg.  The Hindenberg would of burned even if it was filled with Helium.  The SCIENCE is clear.  The catastrophe of ignorance and fear that resulted from that incident has held back modern aviation and transworld cargo for decades.  Lighter than air flight will again be done with hydrogen and it will open the globe up even more than the 747 has today.  I guarantee it. ( huge market here incidentally, just waiting for someone with courage and determination).   What is more interesting, is how hydrogen filled balloons were used doing the civil war.  What the reader will find even MORE interesting is how the Union had portable hydrogen generators to fill up these balloons that lifted men up into the air for observation and artillery spotting.  Here we are today trying to make a portable hydrogen generator and it was used extensively in the civil war and yes, Roy tells you exactly how they worked and even shows you the chemistry.  One of the wonderful things to remember about the hydrogen, solar and energy field is that most of this is NOT cutting edge technology.  Only the people who want to suck up your money and hype their stock want you to think that its the highest form of technology. It really is the reinvention and modernization of 100 to 200 year old technology.  Hydrogen is really high school level chemistry ( well..what used to be high school level )

The Real Secret in the Book,
...and its not Hydrogen.

Most of you are not going to understand this.  You might have to read this paragraph twice, or more.  If you really understand this you will understand more about hydrogen and the future than 99.9% of the wannabe hydrogen advocates out there.  This theme is throughout the book and most people don't see it and say they can't see the trees because the forest is in the way.  I am very serious here, read carefully.  A few examples first; When I was in the Scientific Labs of Chrysler I went to our foundry for a project.  ( Foundries melt and pour steel or other metals, in this case for engines.)  They had a saying, " We are the only place in the company that "MAKES" anything.  Everyone else just assembles the car."  This is a very true statement.  When someone asks me what type of small business they should start I say, " Candle Making.".  Understand this example, making something from a mold is the ROOT of wealth creation.  You make something MORE valuable than the ingredients that went into it. 
Real estate agents, car dealerships, lawyers, sales people and prostitutes are all the same, they only provide a service. Dollars are exchanged for a service, a wealth or additional value is not created.  If I take 10 cents in wax and a 1 penny wick and make it in the shape of a teddy bear and sell it for $10 I've created wealth.  Now the point:  Gasoline, Diesel, Oil, Natural Gas are all called HYDROCARBONS. <-- See the word CARBON in there.  What did I say earlier about Carbon?  This means the liquid or the gas is ONLY made out of Hydrogen ( H ) and Carbon (C) atoms.  Nothing else.  The most common form of elemental carbon you see everyday is either charcoal briquettes or the graphite in a pencil lead. Don't let this fool you.  The hydrogen can be removed from the HydroCarbon and used for vehicle transportation and the Carbon can be turned into CARBON FIBER.  Carbon fiber is stronger than steel.  You can make physical things with it like cars, buildings, beams, plates, rope, houses, fabric, shirts, bullet proof vests.  It can also be thermally conductive or thermally insulating so it can be the insulation in your house and it can be the frying pan on your stove.  It can be electrically conductive or it can be an electrical insulation. So it can replace copper wire AND in another formulation it can be the insulation around the copper wire.  Carbon can and will build the world.  So when you take the Hydrogen out of the oil and use it for fuel ( that is a service ) you also take the carbon out of the oil and you make things ( you create wealth ).  That is what Roy means by Hydrogen being the key to a Wealth Expanding Economy.  You can either read his book or you can understand it.  The choice is yours, but you won't find this in anyone else's book.  Read this paragraph twice.
