Video: Schwarzenegger promises "Hydrogen Highway" efforts will continue
Gov. Schwarzenegger speaks at hydrogen conference – Click above to watch video after the jump
Speaking at the National Hydrogen Association Conference and Expo this week, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vowed that the state's "Hydrogen Highway" would continue to expand after his time in office comes to an end next year. If you can bear to watch the entire speech (it's 13 minutes long), the key points are that the governator admits that the highway is not going quite as planned, but he stops short of declaring defeat.
Back in 2004, the governor signed California's Hydrogen Blueprint Plan. The aim was to have 100 hydrogen fueling stations operating throughout the state by the end 2010, a goal that is not even close to being met. Right now, the state has 31 stations either completed or in the works and reaching the 100 mark is likely years away. Still, Schwarzenegger promises that he will continue the push for H2 even when the Governor title is no longer attached to his name. Follow us after the jump to watch the speech.
