Hydrogen does have its ups and downs but I never heard of silver being used in the process.
I think the best type a power soure for a vehicle is electric, Cars keep getting more and more electrical and all we do to solve the problem is just
put in a bigger alternater, which is the current easiest solution but not very practicle. The only thing holding us back from making electric cars
(feasable) is our current battery tech. Double "A" batteries haven't changed much since they started selling them back in 1957, thats 47 years of
Electricity can come from virtually anywhere, hell in the future (if electricity powered cars get alot of funding) you could have a couple mini
turbines (wind generator) on the front of your car providing the power for your car while you drive it, but for that to happen chemistry needs to be
kicked up a notch. Electric cars would be harmless to the environment, and with more concern about Global Warming there should
be more time
and money being put towards this goal.
So I hope that Hydrogen doesn't catch on, I would like all the money going into that reseach and Development to be transferred to Chemist to make
better more efficient batteries. A wind powered car could be possible within a decade if it got top priority, which it should.
