Both interesting arguments and counterarguments exist in the thread. One thing I like about hydrogen that I haven't seen in the thread yet is that from what I understand, a fuel cell and an electrolytic splitter may have much more longevity than batteries.

Edit: Another interesting thread, where I found this one from: https://www.reddit.com/r/energy/comments/ca24ul/why_do_some_entities_keep_pushing_hydrogen_cell/

I asked "Why is China pivoting to H2 from BEV" which the battery bullies ignore. Also, it will take more than just batteries to get the world off of fossil fuels. This is simply a fact. Every battery made today will die one day and no one is talking about the fact that recycling of Li-Ion batteries IS NOT COST EFFECTIVE IN 2019.

Elon Musk has done a great deal of damage to hydrogen ("fool cells") and you can see it all across ReddiTesla. It's been a long 4 year info-war but some people are actually beginning to get H2 fuel cells there now.

That Musk asshole made a fool of himself when he said that, and one day it will be clear to everyone.
