Mr. Rifkin led a talk about his latest book, The Hydrogen Economy: The Creation of the World-Wide Energy Web and the Redistribution of Power on Earth, published by Jeremy P. Tarcher. In the book he discusses how the burning of fossil fuels for energy has caused these fuels to collect high in the Earth’s atmosphere, preventing heat from escaping. This phenomenon is just one aspect of global warming that Mr. Rifkin asserts can be cut substantially by turning to hydrogen for energy. While current technology requires that hydrogen be extracted from other fossil fuels, the author believes that in the near future it will be possible to use this abundant resource for energy. After the presentation he answered questions from members of the audience. close
