hydrogen as a substitute for gasoline is nice and all but the mechancial comlpexities of the drive train, exhaust, intake, cooling system, starting system, charging system, etc. are essentially the same as a gasoline-powered vehicle
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles use electric motors, not internal combustion. They are 100% electric cars and very analogous with battery powered electric cars. Hydrogen gas is used in a fuel cell to produce electricity with the only by product being water vapor. The problem with hydrogen FCV is the hydrogen creation (efficiency and cost), fuel cell stack, and lack of infrastructure. The problem with battery EVs, is battery degradation after long periods, environmental impact of Battery replacement, weight, and resources like cobalt being harder to procure (especially for Japan).
Though most EV cars in the future will probably be only battery powered, don’t count out hydrogen for big trucks, trains, buses, power grid energy storage, big electric planes, and yes some normal passenger cars.

FCV cars are electric. Hydrogen is used for electric production instead of charging big batteries that then drives an electric motor.

Oldman, let's hear your excuse for why a 6 year old boy had to die. Document how this is a regular occurrence throughout the world.
Children dying inside cars in summer in the US.

I can't see why this is a problem. It is as much if a problem as lack of representation of white men in 100 meter race, where black men are almost make most of the athletes. Some people are just more interested and able in some things that others, and changing that via law, is not almost impossible, but in my opinion, wrong.

Sadly, few Japanese will see a movie like this.

So, the police failed in this case. Still, this murderer should definitely be judged, and if found guilty, be punished to extent of the law. Hopefully, the police learns something (doubtful) and be better prepared.

Bush was ridiculed, not because of the picture in a jet, but because he does this after STARTING a war, and then posing in a fighter jet.
If Abe or anybody does something like this, they deserve to be ridiculed. But alas, this is not the case.
