The reading and the lecture are both about the Hydrogen-based fuel-cell engine, which is a source of energy that can power the cars, using electricity created from hydrogen. The author of the reading believes that this source has a couple of advantages and might replace the internal-combustion engine in the future. The lecture casts doubt on the claims made in the article. He thinks that hydrogen-based fuel is not that efficient and cannot solve environmental problems.
First of all, the author points out that hydrogen-based fuel is practical, as it can be easily produced from renewable sources like natural gas and water, which is a huge advantage among the internal-combustion fuel. This point is challenged by the lecturer. He says that it is actually difficult to produce because the recourses cannot be used in their normal form and need special circumstances.
Secondly, the author contends that it will solve pollution problems. The lecturer rebuts this argument. He states that hydrogen-based fuel producing factories need to burn a lot of oil, that contaminate the environment
Finally, the author says that Hydrogen-based fuel-cell engine is much cheaper. The lecturer, on the other hand, posits that manufacturing this kind of fuel is very expensive, as it requires plutonium, which is a costly metal. He also adds that it is impossible to replace plutonium with other metal, so the fuel price will not reduce.
In conclusion, the lecturer effectively casts doubt on all the claims presented in the reading.
