fuel cell vs electric cars

There seems to be a divergence of thought between car companies

The Asian companies seem to prefer all hydrogen fuel cell cars were as the north americans seem to belive that electric-gas/diesl/bio/Ng/ ice / fuel cell architecture cars are the way to go.

Does this mean that more oil exists than we know and the GM volt types are hedging their bets on future cars types.

Hydrogen is the best solution but without an infrastructure and support to create it, H2 will just evaporate in the short run ?

as a solution----or not ?

Who knows. The horses have just left the starting gate, but each is running in a different direction. There will be an eventual winner - or maybe a tie, but for now its any ones race.

Personally, I'll buy the one that runs on hot air generated by politicians. There seems to be a never ending supply of that fuel.

Asians are catching up with, and may surpass, the US in the number of nuclear reactors. Reactors are ideal for hydrogen production during off-peak times. Besides, Asian countries have little problem displacing people as the need arises.

Pick any place in the US; then say to the public: “we'll be installing three new nuclear reactors here and we'll be taking your land and moving you to a new location”. It's difficult enough to build a new power plant or station using conventional fuels, let alone a nuclear reactor.

Goldstar has the right idea.
