I some how, don't think that the companies that profit from petroleum will give up their profits and big business that easily.
There are so many other alternatives that are not being investigated.
However, BMW is on the forefront of this technology.
The hydrogen automobile runs on water, emit water vapor at the tailpipe, has no pollution and has been under development for 30 years.
Hydrogen as a motor fuel is the answer to many environmental problems since there are no harmful emissions, no depleting of resources, no danger to the atmosphere, and it can be produced from a variety of renewable resources.
The BMW solution is a Clean Energy system where liquid hydrogen is produced from water using solar power, the hydrogen is dispensed from automated filling stations and it powers modified BMW 7 H2R production vehicle.
My Liberal 2 cents...
you can drive a h2 car, I'll keep on using gas
hydrogen only gives about half the energy per MASS compared to gas, plus it's a pain to store efficiently.
half the hp SWEET!
