Photographer's Note

After an Igor (Voltri)'s critique on my photo "Powered By Clean Natural Gas" ("shifted my perception of US public transport", but in "Amsterdam (...) I've seen there a regular bus driven by hydrogen"), I decided to interrupt my series on San Diego public transportation (now the theme California Public Transportation), in order to show this example of a vehicle powered by hydrogen. This is a pickup truk of the US Marine Corps, from Camp Pendleton, California. In some way the military environmental concern is a surprise to me. But the surprise is not total because
(1) this is in the State of California :-), and
(2) the military have been often on the vanguard of technological research (despite their questionable purposes).
In the workshop you see details of the vehicle with decals praising it: Your Marine Corps Helping Keep America's Air Clean, Military's first ever compressed hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicle, etc.
I saw it last April at the Earth Day 2006 Fair ("the largest free annual environmental fair in the world"), in San Diego's Balboa Park.
Approximate location of the shot in WikiMapia: 32.7331405, -117.147249.
