I live in Scottsdale, and my ten mile one way ride is great. The temperature is frequently over 110 degrees with a low temperature of 85 degrees. If you obey the laws, ride on the correct side of the road, traffic is not a problem. Riding home when it is 115 degrees is a great way to lose weight for a few hours. Texas has some great warm weather rides After a little acclimation, and proper training, riding when it is warm is possible.

Here is a quote from the EETimes article. "The resultant Bloom Boxes are not inexpensive today— about $750,000 for a unit capable of running a household (about four to six units are needed to run a typical data center). But within five to 10 years the company promises to reduce the price to as little as $3,000" These fuel cell are not being mass produced yet. Please read about fuel cells before making any judgments about the technology. There are many other companies working on similar fuell cells for homes and vehicles that have already been in use for several years.
