So in the future, cars will be powered by Hydrogen - and the electric plants will have a huge demand like they have never seen before, to make available the electricity to convert the water to Hydrogen - so once again - what powers the electric plants?

And yes, this thread has been very enjoyable and I too have learned a great deal about alternative energy sources.
Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the industry was looking at refining Hydrogen from fossil fuels? Hate to go political, but that would explain why the current oil based administration is touting the future of hydrogen powered cars, it keeps them in business.
