There are many hydrogen advocates that would dismiss
biomass. I suppose I'm a biomass advocate and I'm not going to
dismiss hydrogen. At the same time, one widely spread notion that I do take
issue with is the idea that hydrogen is the inevitably preferred and sort of,
you know), may take a long time, maybe a short time, but it will be hydrogen
some day, for transportation fuel.
I think we should continue to look into hydrogen, and I
wouldn't dismiss it making a large contribution. But when I talk about cellulosic
ethanol, I'm talking about a potentially— a solution that I see as
having— being a candidate for the indefinite future, not just a
transition strategy. Hydrogen is also a candidate for the indefinite future,
for reasons we could go into. I don't think it's–it
should— I think it's very foolish to regard it as the only such
candidate. I think it's a dangerous idea, actually.
