Hydrogen Highway

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4789193/

Looks like the "Governator," Arnold Schwarzenegger is proposing to put up some Hydrogen fueling station infrastructure for the state of California.

Imagine, Hydrogen feul celled Mazda 3's. I hope they would have the same horsepower as our current ones. I think the only thing I'd miss would be the engine rumble and the exhaust note.

But then again, Mazda did produce the Hydrogen powered rotary, RX-8. I wouldn't mind driving that.

-your thoughts?

Good news for me. I have some stock in Proton Energy Systems/DESC who was chosen for the project.

Wouldn't be. Hydrogen doesn't have the same ignition potential as gasoline.

well...they havent really put the full plans down on hydrogen fueled vehicles. i was just watching stuff about gasoline on the history channel the other day. this was just a possibility for future 'gasoline'. but it hasnt come close to the real thing yet. who knows what the future has for us. but i think cali needs this since the pollution over there is outrageous.
