Doing a special report for school about alternative energy for vehicles. Research says creating hydrogen is difficult, expensive, dangerous. And then, all it does is power the electric motor in a car. Then why not go directly from electricity that's already being generated (and create more sources for that: like wind, solar) to power an electric motor in a car? Why the extra step? We had an electric car. It was great.
Re: Why not use electricity directly, not fuel cells to power cars?
