Public appetite for hydrogen fuels and green initiatives is greater than policymakers assume, researchers have found. A four-year £400,000 study by a Salford University team looked at attitudes to the use of hydrogen fuels. Rob Flynn, a sociology professor, said: "Many policymakers assume that the public are ill-informed and resistant to measures to prevent climate change and, as a result, tend to exclude them when developing policy. We've discovered that this is not the case." The study has been extended for four years and awarded over £500,000 by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
