Aluminum?

Anyone else reminded of cold fusion?

Pellets made out of aluminum and gallium can produce pure hydrogen when water is poured on them, offering a possible alternative to gasoline-powered engines, U.S. scientists say.

I’m not sure what they’re proposing to do with all this aluminum oxide but I’ll tell you on thing: this won’t work. We seem to have raised a generation that don’t understand the laws of thermodynamics. You can not get more energy out of a system than you put in. I guarantee you that the energy involved in manufacturing, transporting and recyling the aluminum-gallium mix is going to exceed that produced by the hydrogen.

So we’re back to square one.
