In another ten years most of your vehicle fuel will come from oil sands and diesel from coal.

if they would only build more nuclear power plants then hydrogen would be more economically feasible as a fuel.


It will never be economically feasible to use hydrogen for vehicle fuel, regardless of the source of electricity, it will always be more efficient to use the electricity directly. Many studies have proven that H2 is just another scam.

Of course it's always more efficient to use energy without converting it to another form, but we don't have battery capacity to efficiently send cars comparable ranges. Calling a balance of thermodynamics and practical requirements a scam is pretty absurd.

We already have battery technology to exceed the range of any form of potential on board H2 storage.

Watch the film: "Who Killed the Electric Car" for a good layman's introduction to efficient urban transportation. Electric vehicles in urban areas and diesel vehicles for longer range, and hybrids for in-between.
