And lets be clear, the automaker's tendency to lump Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles into the same category as Battery EVs, for the purpose of manipulating public policy outcomes and dollars, will not be tolerated.
General Motors has lately taken to blitzing the NPR listenership with their "Green Vehicle" advertisements: mentioning Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles and Battery EVs in the same breath as if they were green fraternal twins. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Try making Hydrogen yourself and watch how quickly the electric bill goes up! Its uniquely energy inefficient.
If the automakers want to burn thru their remaining financial assets on fuel cell R&D, fine. But not one penny of taxpayer money shall be wasted on that endeavor.
