Even "The Economist" rejects hydrogen

I can’t believe it, but I’m pleasantly surprised to hear “The Economist” making sense!

This was very interesting, and basically confirms my view that the future of transport is electric simply because hydrogen gas requires too much energy to manufacture, is too hard to store, etc. There probably will be some role for hydrogen, but in niche markets. So be prepared to ride a bike, catch a rickshaw, demand your government build trains, trams, and trolley buses… and then who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky and buy a BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) that can do shorter city trips — but not Sydney to Melbourne in one day, or even half way for that matter!
