Stanford Ovshinsky, founder and chief sccientist of Energy Conversion Devices Inc. in Rochester Hills, told the Flint Rotary Club on Friday that the world has to convert to alternative forms of energy.
He said the scientific community predicts that if we do nothing, the planet's climate will be irreversibly changed in 20 to 25 years.

Ovshinsky said hydrogen can be used in place of other fuels.

"Anything that burns can be replaced by hydrogen now," he said.
