In this chapter, it has been shown that it is feasible to convert internal combustion engines in existing vehicles to the use of hydrogen fuel and build all new vehicles with Liquid hydrogen fuel and engine systems. These vehicles offer the following advantages.

1. Total elimination of adding of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere

2. Near total elimination of harmful smog producing pollution a. Unburned hydrocarbons b. Carbon monoxide c. Sulfur compounds

3. Great reduction in the production of nitrogen oxides

4. Improved cold starting performance

The hydrogen fuel cell automobile has been demonstrated. Future development of the hydrogen air fuel cell will lead to the introduction of an automobile that is non-polluting, highly efficient and exceedingly quiet. The Fuel cell vehicles offer the following advantages.

1. Termination of the addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere

2. Total elimination of harmful smog producing pollution a. Unburned hydrocarbons b. Carbon monoxide c. Sulfur compounds

3. Total elimination of nitrogen oxides

4. Great reduction in vehicle noise

5. Approximately a doubling of overall vehicle energy efficiency

6. Improved cold starting performance

The fuel cell technology can be developed and adapted to replace all small gasoline engines with power sources using hydrogen.

It is feasible to convert a limited number of existing aircraft to the use of hydrogen fuel. All new aircraft can be constructed to use hydrogen fuel systems. Aircraft operating with hydrogen fuel will have greater range, larger payload or a combination of these. Pollution emissions from aircraft will be essentially eliminated.

This chapter has shown hydrogen can be used as the general-purpose fuel for the transportation needs of humankind without the use of irreplaceable mineral hydrocarbon resources. The hydrogen-fueled engines will dramatically reduce the impact of humankind's transportation activities on the environment.

The Fusion-Hydrogen energy system will provide the means for dramatically reducing all forms of soil, water and air pollution resulting from the extraction and use of fossil fuels for transportation. Hydrogen fuel use will stop addition of carbon dioxide from vehicles. It will largely stop atmospheric pollution by materials responsible for acid rain. It will provide a reliable energy source with an inconsequential potential for generation of new types of pollution. The floating hydrogen sources can be located throughout the world to supply energy in every nation, and provide a safe and highly reliable energy distribution system for use of all sectors of the transportation economy. The system will provide an energy distribution system that can easily match the output of the source to the needs of the energy consumer, in both time and space.

Chapter 8 will show how the by-product oxygen can be used to reducing or eliminating other sources of pollution not related to the use of fossil fuels. These sources will include pollution from the disposal of solid waste and treatment of sewage. In addition, it will show a possible method of cleaning lakes and rivers of the current pollution and regenerating and maintaining their natural purity.
