This linked article parallels the corporate strategies behind the looming “green wars” to the old days of Betamax vs VHS video tapes. Once we hitched our horse (or dollars) to a particular fuel approach by buying our new green vehicle, we are at the mercy of the market to agree with our choice and drive demand for re-fueling stations that support our chosen technology. Personally, I would like to see more R&D money spent on hydrogen fuel cells…can you imagine our classic and muscle cars pumping out gobs of horsepower but creating little or no adverse pollution? Sounds like a new market segment for the hot rod industry to develop…retrofit kits to fuel our gas guzzlers with the winning “green” technology.
Will this happen soon?
