The Biden administration is giving $7 billion to develop hydrogen energy. Why some environmentalists are unhappy

President Biden on Friday afternoon announced the selection of seven regional hubs for manufacturing hydrogen, a cleaner energy source than fossil fuels.

But environmentalists aren’t all cheering.

With $7 billion from the Inflation Reduction Act, the hubs will produce hydrogen that can be used in everything from agriculture to heavy industry without creating pollution when burned.
