That's a cool step toward progress. I wonder what their annual oil company subsidies are though?

I just looked it up. If you include coal and oil, the answer is 4 billion. So they're spending 1/200th of that on hydrogen research. Kind of puts it in perspective!

That said I'm very happy it's happening at all and I hope more countries follow suit.
