Response to nationalize the fed (Reply #2)

3. No, but it's worth noting who the author is

The simulations Dr. Thomas refers to are also the basis for a web site

The simulation work that forms the basis of this web site grew out of a summer retreat of the Board of Directors of the National Hydrogen Association in 2007.

If Elon Musk put out a study arguing BEVs are and always would be superior to FCEVs, it would be worth noting who he is as well. Though I think Dr. Thomas probably has less at stake financially than Musk.

It's also worth noting that Dr. Thomas concludes that, while he thinks FCEVs are the better choice in the long run (and elsewhere on his site describes electrification of travel as an evolutionary process that must begin with HEVs and PHEVs), he also notes that one advantage of the BEV over FCEV is "Higher well-to-wheel energy efficiency with renewable electricity." This is the point of comparison I've been most interested in, and its good to see this conclusion confirmed by a strong FCEV advocate.
