No Charley, there is no "consensus" that green H2 is needed to decarbonize a "wide range of sectors", whatever that means.

The amount of solar and wind needed is immense, however, to generate any significant amount of H2 from water. In fact, it's one of the least efficient, most wasteful, most expensive ways to store energy from renewables, barely worth the money to needed to fool energy-unaware activists into believing the two together represent an environmentally-responsible source of energy.

Turns out those activists are learning a thing or two.
