With Biden's spending bill crumbling, a controversial loan office may be his best bet at tackling climate change.

For the LPO under Biden (led by former solar power entrepreneur Jigar Shah), the real appeal of Monolith is shoring up support and market share for the nascent clean hydrogen industry. Hydrogen is poised to be one of the fastest-growing fuels of the future, and holds promise to be the leading source of zero-carbon power for steel factories and other industrial facilities. The US, as well as many countries in Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, are scrambling to lay the groundwork for green hydrogen production and exports.

Maybe Biden should ask the founder of Tesla for his opinion on hydrogen.

"Musk on hydrogen ‘fool cells’

Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk has dismissed hydrogen fuel cells as 'mind-bogglingly stupid,' and that is not the only negative thing he has had to say about the technology. He has called them 'fool cells,' a 'load of rubbish,' and told Tesla shareholders at an annual meeting years ago that 'success is simply not possible.'”

Musk found a surprising source of support in 2017, when Yoshikazu Tanaka, chief engineer in charge of the Mirai, told Reuters, “Elon Musk is right — it’s better to charge the electric car directly by plugging in.”
