The White Elephant of Green Hydrogen

It is far worse than a white Elephant. The long-term president of Ivory Coast Houphouet-Boigny had built a huge cathedral in his birth village. Never mind that the cathedral was oversized for the village, the region, and the entire country. It busted the financial reserves the country had but once it was there they had a cathedral. It’s a tourist attraction and place of worship today. It cost Ivory Coast dearly – but it’s there now and has some residue usefulness. The hydrogen hype will only leave a gaping financial black hole in its wake that we all will have to fill. Hydrogen is as useful as a nose on your behind.
