If I were to predict one stock I would still own 15 to 20 years from now it would be BLDP. This is based on my confidence that we will transition to a hydrogen based economy. I also believe BLDP is less susceptible to a discontinuous innovation displacing their technology than nearly all other investments on your list. Just my opinion. Just as an investment in CRA requires faith in the future of biotechnology.

Ballard? How many years before i can buy a car with a hydrogen combustion engine? Have they made a car with a hydrogen engine that doesn't make a load noise? What's the mileage (i'd guess it's better than gas, but i'd like know.)

Will the car explode if i crash and am using a hydrogen engine?

Ya, BLDP might be less susceptible to a discontinuous innovation displacing their technology, but will BLDP technology even make it to the market place? Gemstar is in the stores right now! Gemstar has a virtual monopoly on EPGs.

I rather bet on a company that has a product out now and is about to tornado than some company that is years away from tornadoing. Just my opinion.

Have Ford and GM say this technology will replace gasoline engines? What are their feelings? I'd guess Ford would be pretty optimistic cause they have an investment in Ballard.

And if you don't mind, explain why PLUG couldn't enter the same field Ballard is in.

note: i've not done much research on fuel cells so forgive me if my opinion on fuel cell technology is way off. It's just i was given the impression that this technology is 2-3 years away from a product hitting the market.
