#1 It's a hefty bet on the future, given that government officials have been trying for nine years, with little success, to get automakers to build more hydrogen cars.

The project is part of a sprawling but little-known state program that packs a powerful financial punch: It spent $1.6 billion last year on a myriad of energy-efficiency and alternative-energy projects.


I think I've isolated the problem...

#2 It's a hefty bet on the future, given that government officials have been trying for nine years, with little success, to get automakers to build more hydrogen cars.

It's a hefty bet, but a fairly safe one, that the owners of these companies will contribute generously to Democrat candidates for the state legislature. Good old Moonbeam might even get his share.

#3 As soon as you place your bet on one future tech another one will show up to make you look foolish.

After Tesla sales I'd bet on electric cars before I'd bet on hydrogen. They'll extend battery life and come up with a way to rapid charge or quick change out the batteries and slowly improve while hydrogen stays where it is.

#4 I'd go with CNG myself.
