The current methods of electrolysis for collecting hydrogen may be inefficient (which is true, even though your reasons are flawed)...
...HOWEVER, the problem then isn't with hydrogen fuel cells but rather with the methods for collecting hydrogen.
If we ignore the inefficiency of electrolysis for a moment, you are still forgetting on important aspect of hydrogen fuel sells...the byproduct of burning hydrogen is water (i.e., the exhaust). The method of collecting hydrogen PLUS the burning of the hydrogen together equal far less pollution.
