Bill Gate’s acquisition of $0.6bn hydrogen yacht confirms yet again that hydrogen is the future

Autos, What's Hot
Many times on this blog, we have discussed Toyota's hydrogen-powered hybrid car called the Mirai among other hydrogen-powered stuff. In one of my blog posts, I specifically mentioned and briefly explained why I think that hydrogen cars and hydrogen engines will eventually take over the auto industry. Today, one of the richest guys in the world confirmed that we are heading towards a hydrogen future. Yes, Microsoft founder Bill Gates has purchased the world's first hydrogen superyacht named The Aqua which cost the billionaire in the region of £500m or roughly $644m according to The Guardian. Despite being among the top 3 richest billionaires in the world consistently for the past 10 years at least, paying 644 million dollars or a luxury boat cannot be a walk in the park for Bill G

Editor's note: This is a rant article. So I found a new article on Reddit technology sub that says "UPS will start using Toyota's zero-emission hydrogen semi trucks". When I clicked on the CNET link and finished reading the article, I came back to Reddit, and said something like, "hey, I expected things like this to happen. I even have an article on my blog where I predicted Hydrogen cars taking over the world some day." And then I proceeded to get this article where I talked about how electric cars will flop because of fossil fuel being used in generating electricity to charge electric cars issues and other stuff. So, it seemed the Reddit technology subreddit is anti electric car criticism. It took about 2 minutes for some guy to comment this demeaning insult on my...
