A great book by a great man! A Hydrogen World expert and pioneer, Roy McAlister will be known in the history of energy more prominently than Edison. He is an expert who writes, not a writer who thinks he's an expert. The book covers the past, current and future usages of hydrogen. From how it was used in the Civil War to how we will all live in a Solar Hydrogen Civilization and what it will look like. How will we make the hydrogen, how will we store and transport the hydrogen across the world. The book covers many methods of making hydrogen and the companion DVD explains those in even more detail.

HGG volumes 1- 5 deal explicitly with making hydrogen gas from organic material to run an engine or a car. This stove is EXACTLY one of those generators. The Wood Gas stove is actually an Upside Down Up-Draft Gassier. It is actually making a hydrogen dominated combustible gas from the wood or biomass in the stove and it is then feeding that gas back into the stove for the purpose of heat and for making more gas. Much larger than most camp stove with a rating of 10,000 BTUs you can run the stove off of fuel all around you (wood chips, twigs, branches, pine cones, and acorns).
