Purists can wait for hydrogen. The market can’t.
Good article in Wired mag. I think it is pretty obvious that we need to take every small step forward available to us. A Hybrid with 50mpg in your hand is better than a Hydrogen car that may realistically be 10-15 years away. I think a lot of people are getting that, and I heard that California Toyota dealers each have more than fifty people on their waiting list for the upcoming Lexus SUV.
