Hydrogen is not quite a 'highly explosive' gas. It is far less dangerous by weight than propane, natural gas or gasoline. All three of those are in common everyday use. Almost all of us use gasoline in our cars, my mother uses natural gas in her furnace, water heater and a fireplace in Ottawa. Almost everyone in Newfoundland and Labrador (with the possible exception of Kevin Blackmore) uses propane safely in their barbecue or camp stove. The only form in which hydrogen is more dangerous than any of the above is when a concentration of the isotope Tritium is in direct proximity to an atomic explosion of fissionable Uranium or Plutonium. This is known as a Hydrogen Bomb.
