Depressed people took medicine

Or it was pushed on them by Doctors more interested in kickbacks than curing people. Humans have existed just fine for what-100 thousand+ years without these substances. Why are there so many taking them now?

The medicine made them more depressed

I'm not a doctor. I have no idea what these pills are doing to the people detailed in SSRIStories.net I'd like to see some unbiased professional studies.

The additional antidepressant induced depression caused them to commit suicide

Here's an article about Japan and their plans for a "Hydrogen Society"

Tokyo Aims to Realize “Hydrogen Society”by 2020

...The creation of a hydrogen society aims at achieving four major objectives. First is the reduction of the burden on the environment. Unlike fossil fuels, hydrogen emits only water when burned. So it promises to greatly cut emissions of carbon dioxide. Second is the diversification of energy sources. Hydrogen can be produced with renewable energy sources, and its use will also promote stability in the supply of energy. Third, it will generate beneficial economic ripple effects. The shift to a new energy source will naturally mean new demand and new jobs. And fourth, it can help in coping with natural disasters. Fuel cell cars generate electricity to power their motors using hydrogen from their tanks, and when disasters cause power outages, these vehicles can serve as large-scale movable generators. This adds to the appeal of hydrogen for Tokyo, which is highly conscious of the importance of disaster readiness...more: https://www.japan.go.jp/tomodachi/2016/spring2016/tokyo_realize_hydrogen_by_2020.html

This transition to green energy could have been led by the US - and have come much farther along by now- but for the last 30 years every spare/borrowed cent has gone to wars and rumours of wars. But I'll be posting green energy advancements from the US because it's important.

Which honestly scares me a bit, that's a ridiculously high pressure.

Yup, 10K psi is very high. I've heard they are looking at increasing it - maybe 12-15K for future generations.

Toyota has done great work WRT safety on these tanks. You can imagine that they wouldn't want an incident to damage their 25+ years of work on this tech. Here, they shoot a 50 Calibre bullet at the tank (lesser sizes just bounced off)

The only problem is containing it

The guy in New Jersey (Inside the Solar Hydrogen House - Mike Strizki) has been storing H2 in old propane tanks (at 200 psi) since around 2005. Not ideal but he says the storage issue is somewhat exaggerated.

Exactly. It's a revolution. Many are unaware that there are >18,000 desalination plants operating daily worldwide.

There are salt water fuel cells but I don't know much about them yet.

Hydrogen as an Energy Carrier: Enabling the 100% Decarbonisation of the Energy System. "As green hydrogen’s cost decreases, its potential grows and its uptake unfolds in stages." by Chop_Chop in Hydrogen

Can you straight up mix it with something to keep it in a liquid suspension and put it in a regular unmodified car even? Is that possible?

A Solid Oxide fuel cell (SOFC) can use ethanol/methanol and make hydrogen. The 3 fuel cell cars available now use Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells which need pure hydrogen gas. Nissan has a prototype SOFC van, introduced in Brazil where ethanol is plentiful.. Ethanol could be made from Hemp in the US.

Regular internal combustion engines would need hydrogen gas and the examples so far have used some type of metal hydride tank storage.

Panasonic makes SOFC home fuel cell units and these can run on natural gas and/or hydrogen.

Perhaps you mean there's no detonation, no explosions?

Yes, thanks for the clarification.

Such an interesting technology.

It's not a total solution to clean energy but it's an important part and it ticks many boxes- jobs, green, energy independence, sustainability, the end of the petrodollar. It is amazing to me that it is not being discussed more, and that there are not crash programs to accelerate the adoption. I was getting a quote on a 5 kW stack the other day, the person I was talking to said they had been in the business for a number of years and clearly knew what they were talking about yet this person was not aware of the fact that 3 manufacturers had hydrogen electric cars on the roads in California. The Hydrogen industry needs better PR quick. Thanks to saidit.net more people will be introduced to the topic.

this is about generating H2 molecules, which would then be burned for combustion engines and such, right?

Very little would be burned in combustion engines (at first anyway) but that is one of the things about H2, if it is cheap and plentiful enough most, if not all, combustion engines can run on hydrogen. Here's Jack Nicholson driving a Hydrogen Chevy in 1978: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjfONpsFvyM

The article mentions these uses:

Industry Sector: Hydrogen is used as feedstock in specific processes in the chemical and fertilizer industry, to produce high temperature heat, as well as for specific novel technologies like hydrogen direct-reduction steelmaking.

Transport Sector: Hydrogen is used in fuel cells to power road, rail, and shipping vehicles.

Power Sector: Power-to-gas provides demand-side flexibility in case supply exceeds demand, and some of the hydrogen produced is used to provide dispatchable power capacity in periods with less renewable electricity generation.

There's no combustion in a fuel cell, just a chemical reaction that produces electricity, water and heat. Air and hydrogen are blown into a box with a bunch of plates inside, basically. Fuel cells can be scaled from tiny ones that run a cell phone to container sized and even bigger to power buildings. Toshiba, among others, has these units on the market now.

Is electrolysis of water the most efficient way to make H2 molecules?

Most H2 is made from steam reforming natural gas, which isn't green but it is cheap. I've heard ~$1.00/Kg. New C02 capture methods may prove worthwhile. For now solar/wind powered electrolysis is 100% green but expensive. But the prices of solar and wind keep dropping so that it is becoming affordable. It takes about 50 kWh to electrolyze 1 Kilogram of hydrogen. The latest low-price solar records in Dubai and Chile for example are at 0.03 cents per kWh which would make a kilogram of hydrogen ~$1.50 (add a bit for compression.) That's cheap - and green -energy. Plus the fact that China is now taking the tech seriously and has an actual plan to dominate the industry in a few years.

TLDR: The tech will get better and the prices of everything hydrogen related will come down dramatically and soon.
