Is there finally a breakthrough with hydrogen?

[S]cientists have found a way to efficiently produce hydrogen fuel by using rust and a light source.

Quote:
The set-up uses just a few basic ingredients - light from a mercury-xenon lamp, a solution of water and methanol, and a particular type of rust (or iron oxide) called α-FeOOH. In a new study, researchers have outlined how this method yields 25 times more hydrogen than existing techniques that use titanium dioxide catalysts.
Scientists Find a Way to Make Hydrogen Fuel Production 25x More Efficient

Hydrogen being the least dumbproof fuel, it's actually better to not have it so widespread.
