To be fair this thing is about emissions, not efficency. They are not the same thing.

Of course while the little cycle emits water the energy used to the seperate those cute little hydrgen atoms requires making CO2.

There is no alternative to oil, in any thermodynamic sense, save nuclear power. (There isn't enough uranium to replace more than a fraction of the worlds electricity needs by the way) The energy is already cooked into oil. Every other conceiveable alternative requires a significant amount of energy added to make useable.

Think about this. It takes more energy (calories) to produce process and store food crops than they yield, when used by the human body. I know it sounds crazy but agriculture is also a thermocynamic loser.
