Fuel Cell cars worse then gasoline? Yep.

Church of Global Warming will tell you that this is good. Is it? They wine about Carbon Dioxide, but not about the number one greenhouse gas: Water Vapor.

Not according to Junk Science:

So, greenhouse is all about carbon dioxide, right?

Wrong. The most important players on the greenhouse stage are water vapor and clouds. Carbon dioxide has been increased to about 0.038% of the atmosphere (possibly from about 0.028% pre-Industrial evolution) while water in its various forms ranges from 0% to 4% of the atmosphere and its properties vary by what form it is in and even at that altitude it is found in the atmosphere. In simple terms, however, the bulk of Earth's greenhouse effect is due to water vapor by virtue of its abundance. Water accounts for about 90% of the Earth's greenhouse effect -- perhaps 70% is due to water vapor and about 20% due to clouds (mostly water droplets), some estimates put water as high as 95% of Earth's total greenhouse effect. The remaining portion comes from carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, ozone and miscellaneous other "minor greenhouse gases." As an example of the relative importance of water it should be noted that changes in the relative humidity on the order of 1.3-4% are equivalent to the effect of doubling CO2.
If you don't believe someone who is "obviously a sock puppet of the Evil Bush administration and the oil companies" then what about Wikipedia?

Gaseous water represents a small but environmentally significant constituent of the atmosphere. Most of it is contained in the troposphere. Besides accounting for most of Earth's natural greenhouse effect, which warms the planet, gaseous water also condenses to form clouds, which may act to warm or cool, depending on the circumstances. In general terms, atmospheric water strongly influences, and is strongly influenced by weather, and weather is modified by climate.
Okay... If you don't believe Wiki, who is "obviously a sock puppet of the Evil Bush administration and the oil companies" then what about NASA:
Scientists know that atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide have risen sharply in recent years, but a study released today in Paris reports a surprising and dramatic increase in the most important greenhouse gas - water vapor - during the last half-century.
Well Crap, I guess everyone is in the "pocket of the oil companies and the Bush administration"

Well, not Honda. They are putting out a vehicle that puts out water vapor, and damn the man!
