How do hydrogen cars produce less pollution than fossil fuels?

The direct pollution of a hydrogen-powered car is just water vapor, which is very clean. However, the TOTAL pollution of a hydrogen-powered car is higher than a fossil-fuel powered car. Pure hydrogen is difficult to obtain here on Earth. You need to make the hydrogen by breaking down other compounds that contain hydrogen, and that often takes a lot of either electric energy or natural gas. The electricity needed to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen generally comes from coal or natural gas, both fossil fuels. So, hydrogen cars or electric cars are just a way of sending the pollution someplace else, not eliminating it completely.

How would pollution affect living organisms that rely cohesion?
