    I think Hydrogen cars will be cool. The technology is intriguing, and it is the future as I see it.

    Hybrid cars still uses petrol engine, so it still doesn't stand against Hydrogen fuel cell cars.

    And btw, Toyota Prius is commercially on sale in Indonesia now. (saw this on some newspaper ads)

    But still to make hydrogen you need electricity, and unfortunately world wide they make hydrogen with fossile burned fuel.

    Great exception is Iceland where they use earthwarmth from the geiser. They make truely green energy

    Rasi, that's the same as I've been hearing for a looooooong time...

    But it's the companies and governments to blame. They want us to be greener, yet make the means expensive and difficult. They say Hydrogen is the future, and supply no Hydrogen stations, they say buy a Citroen, but they're cheap and crap. Why don't they just start all over?

    it will heat up till the gulf stream stops cuz the salt % in the oceans drop below a specific level (they dont know where this level is).
    the salt % will drop as all the Ice one the poles will melt
    then it will cool down fast and we move into the next Ice Age so nothing to worry about a few hot Summers, there is more to worry about -50 or -60 ° C in mid europe if the gulf stream stops


    two planets meet in the space, sayes the first: "damnit i have humanoids !!, sayes the second: "dont worry that will go away

    The earth goes through different changes.

    But it's about time the government put their money where their mouth is and started using wind, water and all the other possibilities to stop pumping fumes into the atmosphere.

    If the government are so hell-bent on making us use "green energy, then they should suffer, not us

    If we had Malaysian rain in England, then we'd really have something to moan about, and we're grumpy with the weather as it is.

    @ Matthew: We have an tunnel system that transports car and water towards wherever they want to go.
    The water goes to a resevoir.
    Its called the SMART Tunnel (Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel)

    Yes, of course I'm from Earth.

    In Indonesia we have a joke:

    Q: Why is Earth too hot today?
    A: Because the Sun opens its branches everywhere :D
