The water molecules are flying after the executive producer of "Who Killed the Electric Car" responded to a test of the Chevy Sequel fuel cell vehicle by Joel Makower. A blogger on, Makower said he found a "small beacon of hope" after driving the Sequel at the same GM event that I attended last week. Makower, who acknowledged he is a consultant to a strategy firm that has GM as a client, found the Sequel to drive much like a "normal car." Makower also reviewed the aspects of the hydrogen economy that have slowed or are slowly gaining momentum. He admits companies with a hydrogen future still have "long roads to travel" and encourages GM to push other eco-technologies. In the end, Makower sees some hope in the hydrogen economy.

In the comments section, the first to respond to Makower's post was Richard Titus, executive producer of "Who Killed the Electric Car?". Titus revived the myths about hydrogen. He closed by saying "We need to stop smoking the hydrogen pipe dream and get real with our addiction to oil."

Following Titus are at least 20 others with strong opinions for and against hydrogen. It all makes for interesting reading with plenty of links to support many of the views.
