Ammonia as Fuel

Here's an interesting article about ammonia as fuel.  It doesn't use carbon at all, which is appealing.

One potential issue is that it creates fuel from air and water.  Those are clean-ish ... but they're also things we really need as they are.

Another is that it breaks down into water, okay, and "harmless" nitrogen.  Harmless in current quantities.  But if we ramped up to mass production, I wouldn't be surprised to discover problems caused by too much nitrogen.
