 I ran across the following article about the hydrogen economy, I've been
waiting for an viable algae system to produce hydrogen, but this leads me to
believe hydrogen is not the answer to our energy independence.

Conclusion:
According to B&E, the hydrogen economy idea does not work for multiple
reasons. They point out that there is no practical source of hydrogen, no
good way to store hydrogen, and no good way to distribute hydrogen. Many of
the problems of hydrogen stem from the physical and chemical properties of
hydrogen. Technology cannot change these facts.

It is difficult to understand the enthusiasm for hydrogen in view of the
above, Hydrogen does not solve the energy problem and it is a bad
choice for carrying energy.

This is all old news, but the media and politicians still haven't grasped
reality or are riding the hype until it wears out.

It was a good idea until Bush backed it.

The ratonal qualities of an idea aren't altered by its proponents or
detractors - all that those change is one's *emotionally-colored
perception* of the idea's qualities.

Hydrogen is plentiful and easy to store and distribute, and a superb
way to transport energy; just attach it to carbon.
