Boris performs fuel cell U-turn

  • I’m not going to blame Boris. Most of his constituents believe that global warming is a hoax.
  • Sixty vehicles for the entire London transport network is a nice gesture, but it’s hardly enough to motivate an original equipment manufacturer, is it.
  • The way out of this vicious cycle (neither manufacturers nor their customers want to put their money ahead of the coming economy of scale) is for jurisdictions such as Greater London to proactively protect the commons they’re charged with protecting in the first place: enact a short-timeline transition to zero vehicle emissions. That will make hydrogen vehicles very competitive, very fast.
