    Look everything has its downsides and they're not talking about the same ammonia that you're talking about. Being a little dishonest in this video. Gasoline's dangerous too, so our batteries. Being very disingenuous in this video thumbs down dude

    In hybrid cars it can make sense, especially if it can use regular internal combustion engine. Charging station and grids can use it. Nuclear power plant energy could make it, maybe even nuclear waste.

    CO2 is regularly used as a fertilizer in greenhouse agriculture. CO2 in the atmosphere would have to reach a concentration well beyond what has been measured across the existence of the human species to cause problems with food crop nutrition. The air is simply not rich enough in CO2 to warrant such concerns. It is asinine to assert that climate change or human sourced CO2 in the atmosphere is directly impacting nutrient draw from soils via preferential carbohydrate synthesis. Such a change would be below the limit of detection and washed out by noise in data at the present day atmospheric CO2 concentration. Soil depletion is by far the greatest factor affecting nutrient uptake and residual soil nutrients. Monocropping and deep tilling wears out soils and synthetic fertilizers only replace the nutrient in the soils. They do not replace the destroyed mycoculture responsible for enhanced nutrient uptake through roots. As water draws soil nutrients further into the ground, the fungi in the soil is responsible for sequestering and distributing nutrient the roots can't absorb before those nutrients pass below the roots and fungi. With less fungi, those nutrients can completely escape uptake by seasonal crops.

    When all is said and done it will turn out that petrol/gasoline is the greenest fuel, beating such alternatives and even EVs and biodiesel. We just need an honest LCA.

    I'm a refrigeration operator on commercial fishing boats, Anhydrous ammonia is not a good time, it attacks all of the damp places on your body very very aggressively. Everywhere you are even a little sweaty. You can feel your balls burning immediately in the presence of a small leak, not to mention your lungs eyes nose mouth. I would trust Toyota to make a reliable fueling system, but never all of the random jackasses who would end up operating those stations.

    ⚠️ if we go carbon neutral, that means that we are also made out of carbon so that means we’ll be extinct. Carbon neutral is not gonna prevent global warming. It’s just gonna make things horrible. I am against carbon neutral. I’m against electric vehicles. I’m against of anything that is carbon neutral.

    I'm sure the highly educated American consumer base would understand the fueling station service employees being dressed in head to toe hazmat suits and sealing your car completely shut before refueling it and then making you drive away before the small high pressure anhydrous ammonia leaks get into your car.

    No one would have any concerns over the safety of that and everyone here is completely eager to get away from gas and diesel without any form of resistance whatsoever. Especially not the safety of alternatives for example thinking something silly like EV battery fires make EVs dangerous and we should just stick to gas cars forever. That would be ludicrous.
