Philippine writer wants today the fuel economy he heard about in 1995
Abaya says hydrogen is better than other alternative energy sources. Biomass and ethanol still produce carbon dioxide when burned. Nuclear fusion is currently a pipe dream, decades away from practical implementation. Solar and wind cannot produce enough energy in a small enough area. Fuel cells, though, are advanced, can't cause catastrophic accidents, and emit nothing but water vapor. The problem is that it costs so much more to generate the electricity in a fuel cell than using, say, coal. But, given the recent Stern Report suggesting $294 billion dollars be spent to combat global warming, fuel cells should receive priority funding.
