Eddie: Gas prices have been soaring recently. At this rate, anyone who needs to drive a car to get to work every day is really going to be in a bind.
Zoya: That's right. Luckily, there will be "hydrogen fuel cells" in the near future.
Eddie: What is a "hydrogen fuel cell"? I've never heard of that.
Zoya: It's a fuel that consumes hydrogen through a pollution-free chemical reaction. The cell chemically combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, water and heat.
Eddie: Awesome. Once hydrogen fuel cells are on the market, they'll certainly help ease the rising fuel prices and climate change crisis!
