I agree, but battery powered cars will be old news by 2040. Hydrogen powered internal combustion engines will be the rage. The technology is in it's infancy now, but there are several start-ups working on it and conversion kits for some engines already available (mostly those driving industrial generators).
Ah... well there you go.

All we have to do is get around:
Quote:
As of 1999, the majority of hydrogen (∼95%) is produced from fossil fuels by steam reforming or partial oxidation of methane and coal gasification with only a small quantity by other routes such as biomass gasification or electrolysis of water
"Aha," you say, "those numbers are from 1999!"

Quite correct. The point being that if the numbers had changed since 1999, then presumably someone would have thought to update Wikipedia.

Burning fossil fuel elsewhere is not the same thing as not burning fossil fuel.
