When those deja-vu inducing promos came out for “Who Killed the Electric Car?” a while back, I started wondering whether the technology for an environmentally friendly, non-oil sheik supporting car would ever be brought to the mass market. The most highly-skilled engineers in the world could build a magic flying carpet a la Alladin, but if entrenched corporate interests didn’t like the ramifications (ie. oil profits plummet) then the final product just ain’t gonna fly.
The proposed Hydrogen Highway of hydrogen refueling stations stretching from beautiful BC down to sunny California could finally get the hydogen-powered vehicle industry moving. After all, no one’s going to buy a car that they can’t drive because there’s nowhere to fill it up. It truly is a case of “build it, and they will come.”
