Joseph J. Romm, former acting assistant secretary of energy during the Clinton administration, takes a strong stance in the Sacramento Bee against rushing to merge onto the Hydrogen Highway.
(Sacramento is the capital of California, and hence the seat of Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is outspoken about his Hydrogen Highway initiative.)
... a focus on hydrogen represents a misdirection of resources away from strategies that can achieve far more environmental and energy benefits for far less money for decades to come.
Romm is the author of The Hype about Hydrogen: Fact and Fiction in the Race to Save the Climate.
More on the arguments pro- and con-H2 later.
