Massive reserve of hydrogen

Hydrogen may not be as rare as a study says rocks beneath the ocean floor by fast-spreading tectonic plates may be a large and previously overlooked source of the gas, which might be the fuel source responsible for triggering life.  If it were found in large enough quantities, experts speculate it could be used as a clean-burning substitute for fossil fuels because it gives off high amounts of energy when burned but emits only water. Discoveries of free hydrogen gas have been made near slow-spreading tectonic plates deep beneath Earth’s continents and under sea.
