Good thing the US has not only the nuke technology to make hydrogen, or plenty of natural gas to make it from, but plenty of pipelines to move it around, plenty of concentrations of people in these things called "cities" so that supply isn't a problem, and actual machines which run on these alternative fuels already being sold, prototyped, driven and used every day on the streets of America.
I say the time has come for us Doomers to match proudly into the future we helped create by our hysterical scare mongering to the public...WE DID IT!! We convinced enough people to worry about liquid fuels to mass produce other types of completely reasonable transportation, powered by things we have plenty of!
A round of back slapping for everyone! And Happy New Year
