I almost feel silly doing it, as it has been covered ad nauseam, but here is a list of a few of hydrogen's pluses and minuses, courtesy of Robert Zubrin., author of The New Atlantis,
Good:
  • Hydrogen is super abundant
  • Hydrogen burns clean
  • Hydrogen fuel cells emit only water
Bad:
  • There is no current infrastructure to support it
  • The energy needs to be removed, which takes energy
  • Hydrogen is difficult to contain in autos
That was simple, wasn't it? All of these points and more are covered in this post on Boing Boing, and here on our site.
