Hydrogen -- is it hype or is it hot?

The other day in class I started describing how easy it is to make hydrogen.  According to  in 

How the Hydrogen Economy Works

 "The problems with the fossil fuel economy are so great, and the environmental advantages of the hydrogen economy so significant, that the push toward the hydrogen economy is very strong."

To make this happen though, we all need to learn what hydrogen is and how it is made, and we've looked at the fact that you can make hydrogen using simple drain cleaner and waste aluminum foil. (see 

Run Your Car on Hydrogen from Aluminum Soda Cans and Lye

). In this article he even shows how to run a car on home made hydrogen.
