I’ve been waiting for hydrogen powered cars to show up and it looks like Mercedes is ready to go. It’s still limited production but you have to start somewhere. It runs using a fuel cell to power an electric motor that produces pure water and zero emissions! There is still a lot of work to do before anything like this makes an impact on our carbon footprint. Distribution of hydrogen so drivers can refuel is one very big issue but at least we can still use the phrase “I’m running out of gas”.
If hydrogen as a fuel would spread
Then our fear of carbon would shed
It’s doomsday appeal.
Now reductions are real
So we’re leaner and greener instead.
