Pro-hydrogen blogger Greg Blencoe will miss Burns, and wrote the following about him:
On April 2, 2008 at the National Hydrogen Association annual meeting in Sacramento, he gave what I think is the most important speech ever given on hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.More here.
It was the first time I heard an influential person urgently stress the need to get started on building the hydrogen fueling infrastructure. Since that time, other car companies have been much more vocal about the need to get the hydrogen fueling stations built.
I think history will look upon that speech as one of the key turning points on the path to getting large numbers of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles on the road.
