That's the funny thing about hydrogen fuel cells: it tends to be a really round-about way of using fossil fuels.

Just a plain, battery-electric vehicle is so much more straight-forward.

Fuel cells are an amazing concept, but if they ever go mainstream, we will really need to find a renewable source of hydrogen for them.

Bust it out from methane from landfills perhaps?
