Gestures broadly at most of the planet
Then why have pushes towards hydrogen gone nowhere ❓

I guess I will need to see more buy in from the rest of the industry. I agree that hydrogen is better than electricity for heavy duty long distance vehicles. But abundance <> feasibility/scalability.

Because we haven’t banned gas yet. This will be worse than diesel and gas for these trucks. And it would be worse than an EV in a daily. But if you’re hauling stuff over distance, EV is a non-starter.
I dont think banning gas would make everyone move to hydrogen over night. Plus yes while fuel cells are way cleaner emissions wise they're not much better efficiency wise compared to say, a hybrid. And the logistics are tougher than gas or electricity. I think hydrogen is a good option for certain applications but it's def no cure all or replacement for EVs.
