The Department of Energy's Marcus Siddley is charged to carry out the conversion from gasoline to hydrogen energy technology. To spread the message to the world's leaders, he travels to Russia, China, and France. He soon meets the beautiful Algerian-born Meredith, and they are drawn together by their love of the environment.

Through the use of this intriguing fictional story, author Roy D. Ostrom examines the question of how to stop global warming. Through his research, he discovered that enlightened countries use a process called partial oxidation to produce hydrogen instead of gasoline for energy. His story serves to showcase this alternate, non-CO2 producing and non-polluting hydrogen energy technology-one that will free the world from pollution.
