Burning fuels for electricity, transportation and other uses are the chief driver of climate change, pulling long-buried carbon in fossil fuels out of the ground and depositing that carbon into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
While blue hydrogen does contain some emissions, the study notes that energy also is needed in the carbon-capture process hence provides no benefit.
We have only started to understand the effects of greenhouse gases began in the 1820s with French scientist Joseph Fourier.
