A Song About Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Here's a song congress should hear: "Gasoline gets people were we gotta go, but lets talk a little a bit about the price tho. We know at the pump it's like a living hell, but we've been damaging the earth as well. There are other choices that we could be taking: a hydrogen fuel cell is in the making. It breaks down water it turns it in the fuel emitting zero pollution which is real cool."

This video but University of Mississippi students highlights research there to develop hydrogen fuel cells for cars, which could reduce the need for oil and gasoline.

Lyrics:

Gasoline gets people where we gotta go, but let's talk a little bit about the price though.
At the pump we know it's like a living hell, but, even worse, we've been damaging the earth as well.
And there are other choices that we could be taking:  a hydrogen fuel cell is in the making.
It breaks down water, turning it into fuel, emitting zero pollution, which is real cool.
But what about dollar signs, talk about the fee.  To keep the earth clean tell me what it costs me.
To drive it around cost almost none, but the fuel cell cost about a million.
See the platinum inside it is the problem now.  We need to run it without it; nobody knows just how.
We don't want coal or electricity, but, most of all, you see, we can't afford platinum.

And so a friend of mine is trying to find a better way.  Doctor Ritchie's researching, looking towards a better day.
He's gonna have a say in lowering the cost of driving your car, saving you the cash that you would've lost.
See we have had a fuel cell, and, well, it's been nice, but it's been unaffordable because the price was too high.
So the bottom line is Doctor Ritchie's up and at 'em, finding a way that we don't gotta use platinum.
