The election of Arnold Schwarzenegger highlights the possibility that California will aim its energy future toward hydrogen, the most abundant element on earth, which as a fuel emits only water vapor.

Schwarzenegger picked one of the state's leading hydrogen advocates -- Terry Tamminen -- to the top post at the California Environmental Protection Agency. When heading Environment Now, Tamminen pushed state legislation boosting hydrogen that now serves as the centerpiece of the new governor's environmental platform.
