      There are many ways to obtain and create fuel; the question is whether it is cost-effective or not.

      That's probably the most relevant point, cost effectiveness. I'm not sure I like the idea of ideas that will come off to the scientifically-illiterate public as clean energy breakthroughs but will allow us to put off moving away from terribly dirty gasoline-driven automobiles, but this would still most likely be a good method to bridge the gap as oil production rates decline. This process does remove some CO2 from the atmosphere, however the main concern I would have if it went into large-scale use would be the amount of chlorine produced instead as a byproduct of sodium hydroxide production.

      It's just a battery basically. Currently a very inefficient and unwieldy battery. Batteries are not energy sources.

      I like how people insist on staying with combustion engines.

      Yeah, that's kinda where I'm coming from. It's pretty much the single greatest instance of mass procrastination that I can think of in all history.

      So basically what you've done there is suggest that we replace all combustion engine based transport with pedalling.

      Just something that would be better. I don't own a car, and probably won't for a while, but if I'm going to, I hope I can get an electric one. I just wish the market would move in that direction soon.

      I fail to see how this is a major game-changer or it being amazing and revolutionary, if we were to produce hydrogen and use it as a fuel it would have the exact same effect.
