Elizabeth Swann - Jules Verne - World Hydrogen Challenge



RACE AGAINST TIME: This could have been another of Jules Verne's titles. But it is not a work of science fiction, it is a man-made problem today that even the master storyteller would have had trouble predicting. Despite our scientists telling us the global warming is at a crucial tipping point, world leaders are allowing the use of fossil fuels to superheat the planet with dire consequences. Jules was adamant that hydrogen would be a source of power for mankind in the future he envisioned. In our view he was bang on the money. Green hydrogen offers us a sustainable future, based on splitting water using electrolyzers, to recombine for heat or electricity. We can use renewable solar and wind power, to create a circular economy, without CO2 and other harmful gases and particulates. This clean energy source can drive our automobiles and ships, as a major brake on climate change. What is holding us back and why? The technology exists today! Given the opportunity, we would like to prove it to you. If it is possible to complete the build of the Elizabeth Swann above by 2024, it will be the 150th anniversary of his prediction in his 1874 book: The Mysterious Island.





Electricity can be produced via photovoltaic solar panels, wave energy and wind turbines. There is enough natural energy from these sources to provide power for all seven billion humans on earth, several times over. In other words, we do not need internal combustion engines, nuclear or coal fired power stations. We need a circular economy based on sustainable technology, if we are to stop the temperature rise of the earth from going past 2.0 degrees celsius.


We are in the process of transitioning from fossil fuels, like diesel and petrol, to an all electric society, where even our cars, trucks, ships and aircraft, could soon be running on electricity, using fuels cells to conveniently convert hydrogen based fuels into power for propulsion.
