David Redstone has been a leading light in the USA that has been concerned about the effects of Carbon dioxide emissions and about our dependence on fossil fuels. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in physiological psychology and neuroscience from the University of Michigan and earned a law degree from Wayne State University Law School.
David became interested in the emerging fuel cell industry in the 1990’s and he began his investigations into fuel cell technology in detail, obtaining information on companies that were leading the way in fuel cell development. In April 2000 David launched his online publication, “The Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Investors’ Newsletter”.
The reputation he built up was unbiased reporting on evaluations across the sector, in terms of business foundations and the viability of their technologies. The newsletter gave subscribers a clear understanding of the underlying science, the relative strengths of the various fuel cell technologies and business plans and nurtured the technologies with the most potential. Fossil fuel needed to be addressed and David was the man to address it.
Sadly, we have learned that David died just before Christmas 2010 via our Linked In community. The secure online subscription at http://www.h2fc.com/still offers backgrounds and viewpoints on developing fuel cell technologies as well as the financing and research activities of many companies. What will become of his services is not yet known.
What we do know is that David Redstone was passionate about alternatives to fossil fuels. He has given presentations in Intertech’s 2002 Hydrogen Investment Forum, National Hydrogen Association’s 12th Annual Conference and GasMart/Power 2001. He was quoted by CNN, Bloomberg, Forbes, New York Times, Detroit Free Press, TheStreet.com, Red Herring, Wired and many media outlets.
He was an amazing man that helped to change the world. His legacy will continue of that we can all be sure, and we all welcome the day that we no longer need fossil fuels.
