Hydrogen is the answer

The Spokesman-Review

Hydrogen can be split from water. It doesn’t pollute. It isn’t controllable by oil companies, China, Russia or Middle Eastern interests. Hydrogen is a viable fuel to power automobiles. Fuel cell technology is in place.

In the Sunday, May 10, issue of Parade, an article entitled “Will GM Design Your Next Car?” said, “Isn’t hydrogen an infrastructure problem? … The amount of hydrogen used to make gasoline today could fuel 200 million fuel-cell vehicles.”

Hydrogen can be extracted from H2O. There is speculation the world will be fighting over oil reserves in the near future. Why has the federal government just mandated our cars must be cleaner, and get better mileage from gasoline, while deciding against funding for hydrogen? Please ask them. I just did. The Obama logic is indecipherable.
