Hydrogen is a bad idea. It takes a lot of energy to produce hydrogen. It isn't "green" at all.

It takes equal or less energy to produce hydrogen than it does for oil.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolysis_of_water

My dad did this in high school chemistry in the 60's and he made a big enough hydrogen explosion to make an M80 look small. All he used was beaker of water and some double A batteries.

Imagine where we could be if we used a nuclear plant as a large hydrogen mine. Good bye oil dependency.

If I ever get a hydrogen car I'm going to paint HINDENBURG along the sides of it.

The irony of this would be that a German car maker makes a model of a hydrogen car called the Hindenberg. And then it gets involved in a monster car pile up.

OH THE HUMANITY!!!

If a German car maker made a hydrogen car..I would want to get one just to get a HNDNBRG license plate.
