White Hydrogen Could Potentially Save the World from Climate Crises

Two scientists dug up something that could have the potential to save the world.
New white hydrogen deposits allow scientists to develop a clean energy source.
New white hydrogen deposits allow scientists to develop a clean energy source.

Two scientists in Northeastern France were digging, trying to find fossil fuels. What they didn’t know was that they were going to stumble upon something that could potentially save the planet from the ongoing climate crisis. Jacques Pironon and Phillipe De Donato are two head research scientists at France’s National Centre of Scientific Research. According to CNN, they were in Northeastern France because they were measuring the amount of methane in the subsoils. 


They used the world’s first probe with the ability to analyze dissolved gasses in water. They sent the probe in a borehole, and found low concentrations of hydrogen a couple hundred meters down. “This was not a real surprise for us,” they said, but what they didn’t know was that the probe did not stop; it just kept going and going until it came to a halt. It stopped only 14 percent through the borehole. The research estimated that there could be between six to 250 million metric tons of hydrogen in that one borehole.

“That could make it one of the largest deposits of white hydrogen ever discovered,” Pironon said. This large deposit of hydrogen could help with the climate crisis. If they found a couple more of these white hydrogen deposits, this fuel could revolutionize the power industry and contribute to further technological advancement. This could also become a new fuel source for aviation and the automobile industry. When hydrogen is burned, it produces water, making it a clean fuel source. If white hydrogen becomes more abundant, then humans would not have such a hard time with the scorching summer. Cleaner fuel makes a healthier planet.
