    Alright guys, I need some help. I'm doing a speech tomorrow on Hydrogen cars. My main points are: How they work, Pro's, and Con's. Do you know of any good websites or magazine articles that I can get my information from? I've found a few, but if anyone has any info or input it would be appriciated-- thanks!

    I'd start by spelling powered correctly and then I'd check out this site:

    Are you just going to talk about PEM Fuel Cell or Direct Methanol and other types of fuel cells as well? I think I have some stuff that I might be able to dig up for you but they are mainly printed stuff. Daimler Chrysler probably your best bet for real application (they had test driven their FC vehicles across the US before. Other FC companies such as Ballard might have some good theory stuff as well. PM me and I might be able to give some papers/pointers.

    Ahh thanks a lot. It's just a 5-7 minute speech, and I think I'll be able to find all the information in the stuff I have here. The hard part is organizing everything into sections, citing things, and figuring out timing and stuff. Ug, I hate procrastinating.

    you should note the lack of hydrogen fill stations (even though the govenator made it law that they will begin building them in Cali) and that the best form of getting hydrogen to use in the automobiles still requires burning fossil fuels.:)
