“What of today’s news is of most lasting significance? Maybe this: (First a little paragraph of background.) We can run automobiles with nothing but water in the gas tank, you know.

Recently, MOTHER EARTH NEWS sent a staffer and a photographer out to Provo, Utah to talk to Roger Billings, head of the Billings Energy Corporation. Between manufacturing computer systems and doing hydrogen research, Mr. Billings is quite a busy gentleman. Nevertheless, he took the time to discuss the various aspects of hydrogen power with us, including its production and use as a fuel. The points he brought up were interesting enough, but the equipment he demonstrated was even more impressive: it provided us with proof that hydrogen power isn’t just yesterday’s dream, but today’s reality!
Working for nearly three years in a makeshift basement laboratory, Billings finally emerged with a hydrogen powered lawn mower engine that ran. He nearly backfired himself out of existence — or at least out of his neighbors’ good graces, but he was, nevertheless, encouraged. Near the end of his senior year at Provo High, he brought forth what is believed to be the nation’s first hydrogen powered automobile, a Model A Ford. Today, at the ripe age of 28, Roger E. Billings could be named the Father of Hydrogen Technology.
