    Why Shouldn’t Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars Be The Cars For The Future?

    Reason: Water And Light/Solar Energy Are Free. The Idea: Captures Sunlight And Use The Energy To Break Water Molecules Into Hydrogen And Oxygen.

    Hydrogen, like other "zero emission" vehicles have emissions, shifted to fixed power plants, in the case of Hydrogen, electric powered or more commonly natural gas reform plants create hydrogen with an about 60 percent efficiency, combined with the 60% efficiency of the current fuel cell technology gives about 36% power utilization efficiency, about the same as hybrid cars.  Seems that a hybrid natural gas powered ICE car would give simpler results with smaller simpler tanks and no platinum fuel cell.  Better yet if naturanl gas fuel cells currently used in fixed co-generation plants can be miniaturized for in car use, you would have a fuel cell car tat doesn't require the intermediate energy conversion step, yielding a net power effeciency loser to 60%.

    Electrolysis
    is the process of passing direct electric current through molten ionic compound
    to decompose it into its elements. When direct electric current is passed
    through water, water will dissociate into its elements of hydrogen and oxygen
