"The Hydrogen economy is a bad idea - a really, really bad idea"
The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy was published last September and, in an article from this week's Montreal Gazette, McMahon takes California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to task for the much-hyped hydrogen Hummer unveiled in 2004 (the thing couldn't drive to the unveiling because it has a range of only 80 miles, and there weren't any hydrogen fueling stations along the way).
McMahon falls more on the "use the technology we've got now – hybrids, EVs, etc." side of things. And, what about waiting for decades for the hydrogen economy? "The hydrogen economy is a bad idea - a really, really bad idea," McMahon told the Montreal Gazette.
