Reuters Asia reported on the existence of this car last year.I bet you haven't heard of it.Why not?The "hydrogen cell" technology pushed by Bush & Co. is a preposterous over-complication of a simple idea. The fact that Obama & Co. are not all over this

Thanks! also check this out, here in Greece http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_(vehicles)

...again, where are the cars?

Greek Geeks Developing Hydrogen Vehicles and Storage
Posted on June 26th, 2007 by admin
Well, if geeks may one day rule the world, it may just be the Greek geeks that are leading the pack. A group of Greek scientists at the University of Crete have discovered a method to store hydrogen using carbon nanotechnology.

Currently, most hydrogen cars use hydrogen stored in highly compressed form between 5,000 psi and 10,000 psi. This causes safety issues and increases the amount of energy necessary to store the gas. So, researchers like those in Greece, have been developing methods and materials for low pressure storage of hydrogen gas.

The scientists at the University of Crete are using nano carbon with vast surface area to store hydrogen at low pressures. By adding lithium ions to the mix, they are able to store double the amount of hydrogen than others doing similar research.

And, if this weren’t enough, then there is another set of Greek geeks also making headway in hydrogen research. The Athens Hydrogen Minibus Project is in full swing. Researchers are converting a 40-seater bus to run on hydrogen fuel cells. Advent Technologies and Tropical SA are collaborating on the conversion.

Today, Helios with his halo of sun and blazing chariot is smiling down on the Greek researchers who are helping to dawn a new day over Mount Olympus.

Sounds like a Winner to me, where are the cars?

Like Texans are going to drive that thing!! No way. Now with water being so sorely polluted by big business, do ya think it'll run on polluted water? Why if that's true, we'll rule the world. (LMAO)

Not an out of the question question... Why can we not take the sludge, polluted waters, etc and make it work for us rather than continue to destroy all that is around us? We need science to show us more recycling of what we have already made a mess.

With the seas rising we'll have plenty of "fuel". Of course, we may be desalinating it for drinking water before long. The water crisis is coming.

This is a great invention but I bet that the oil indutry will fight tooth and nail to prevent it ever being put on sale.If they can't stop it by gentle persuasion they will simply buy out the firm which manufactures them.These big multinational companies are not interested in ecological matters but only where the next quick buck will come from.A Pox on all ther houses.
