Decades ago, California was in the vanguard with air quality regulations and restrictions on emissions (much to the dismay of many, but to the betterment of the air). California is also being equally forward thinking in pushing for hydrogen-based energy solutions.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared that he will build a Hydrogen Highway as part of his energy plan for the state.
Los Angeles Airport (LAX) will have the first compressed hydrogen fueling station for public use.
And San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom took delivery of two Honda FCX H2 fuel cell cars.
Small but important steps.
