Saving oil without the hydrogen hype

While many focus on grandiose dreams of all-electric vehicles and hydrogen, a new IEA report shows the staggering potential for improvements to petroleum-fuelled cars. And car manufacturers are starting to deliver thanks to credible, long-term policy commitments.

Sometimes it can very easy to get dazzled by the technological wizardry of breakthrough technologies such that you forget some of the more mundane, but also more immediately implementable, ways we might reduce carbon emissions. Also there are a number of talented PR people out there that can be incredibly adept at the old, ‘look over there at the wonderful breakthrough technology we need for deep emission cuts in 2050’ trick to divert our attention from the here and now.

Does anyone remember the hype around the Hydrogen Economy?
