Thanks Canada, you represented us well!

browny1

you forget Namibia was also free if you're going by your logic but I don't read about them helping.

Helping comes from the heart. It's either there or it isn't. Sometimes you can't just teach it

Posted in: Toyota unveils revamped hydrogen sedan to take on Tesla See in context

If homes become the powerplants of the future with net zero buildings then recharging at home increases in practicality. Hydrogen not so much. You'd need large systems to make it for both practical sale issues and for any safety. As the world goes green hydrogen will be left behind and not be involved in the designs and implementations of the green transitional economy.

Posted in: Toyota unveils revamped hydrogen sedan to take on Tesla See in context

Why does it always take the makers 2 or even 3 generations to make good looking alternative fuel vehicles?

Think low medium and high fidelity prototypes. It takes making something to learn about it. The lessons learned survive into the next iteration. That's how design works

Posted in: Toyota unveils revamped hydrogen sedan to take on Tesla See in context

If you have grid connected vehicles and make the highway the battery you don't use your onboard electricity and would be able to deliver freight without oil at huge transportation cost savings in a $700Billion market.

hydrogen is a desperate technology from existing oil and gas companies who don't benefit from home recharging of electric cars nor the thousands of car chargers out there. The future is electric not hydrogen. Too many negatives including safety from an odourless colourless flammable gas

No matter the tank coating, hydrogen will break it down eventually, making the longevity of any vehicle in doubt.

Also the recent Nobel Prize was for the lithium-ion when the team of Goodenough just made another solid state battery that will come on market in the next few years. Thus making battery powered vehicles even more attractive and easier to make.

Apple is made in China, it's Chinese unless they fight back. They won't. Apple products are aiding and abetting the CCP

Posted in: Kansai Electric chairman resigns over gift scandal; president to follow after 3rd party report See in context

Ghosn waiting for what looks more like a show trial from China than any real democracy. All these bowing execs who could all be jailed when they walk away must just laugh and laugh

If Japan really did start cleaning up by Western standards it would be a wonder how many would be jailed?

Goodenough is 97 years old and leads teams that keep inventing new battery technologies. His group also invented the followup to the lithium-ion called a solid state battery.
