Four questions about hydrogen

Hydrogen is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas. It occurs in very small concentrations in the atmosphere. And quite by chance, it’s also a very suitable fuel for vehicles. Experts call it "the environmentally-friendly fuel of the future". But why is hydrogen 'environmentally friendly'? And what exactly are we doing with hydrogen?
