We need a method to distribute Hydrogen and if I am correct I don't think hydrogen cars are very feasible yet.

Electric cars charge overnight and are intended primarily for in-town errands and to and from work.

Sure, this would help usher in electric cars, but I fear the fanboy fights.

Headline: AMD enters electric battery market

*6 months later*

Intel: Cars with our batteries go farther!
AMD: Our batteries have a higher price/performance ratio!
Intel: Our batteries overclock better!
AMD: You can't even overclock a battery!
Intel: Nyaaaaaaaaah!

BLACK OUTS, thats where!

I'm lookng into solar, I need my folding juice

Our power supply grids need to incorporate more efficient sources of energy to improve the grid. The power is out there, in the forms of solar, geothermal, hydroelectric,and wind. Fossil fuels and Nuclear reactors are not the only power supply source, and if anything we should be turning away from them indefinately as they are no longer practical with the technology we have today. There is enough geothermal energy untapped in the United States alone that can power the entire world, for a very long time. Imagine if you combined all 4 renewable energy sources into one plant, thats how we should running this country, electrically speaking.

In a car, some renewable energy could be used as well, a large solar cell in a sun roof type panel, a turbine mounted in the vehicle that can spool up from air turbulance as you drive. Scientists are even working on a sprayable solar media similar to a paint. Fossil fuels as an energy source are obsolete and electric in my mind is the only way to go.

We seem to be stuck in 486 days as far as energy goes, new battery technology could bring us to nahalem days

QFT, electric will prevail, they will probably have some type of solar roofing on the vehicle to absorb energy waves from the sun.

Whats so wrong with nuclear and recycling that nuclear waste?
Last I heard, you can recycle 90 to 95% of the fuel. France keeps all their waste in a room about the size of a lecture hall.

Same problems with hydrogen there buddy.

Not to mention cost, which is over a million per fuel cell.

The fact that it produces waste is whats wrong with it, renewable resources are clean in the sense there are no emissions or waste produced. Making them superior in a sense to nuclear power. Not to mention in the event of a nuclear meltdown, reactor leak, or terrorist attack, the nuclear facility could turn into one very large problem.

FYI, Even though there is no waste in gathering solar rays, there is waste producing those solar cells. Same with producing wind turbines.
