Tax externalities.

The atmosphere is a common. Not taxing the effects of blowing CO2 into the atmosphere is a demonstration of a tragedy of the commons.

You wouldn't want people to just park their car on your local playground - you'd want to discourage that. You can put up a fence, you can use a tax, etc. This is no different.

That’s not what he said though. He said he wanted to maliciously tax people to the point they have no choice but to bow to his way of thinking. Huge difference to me.

That's what you said. That's not what he said.

The externalities are super-expensive right now. Any tax would probably be too low.

We have a 2018 model 3, and a CT and an Aptera on order, I'm retiring soon. Both were put on order in moments of exuberance for all things electric. Although having the CT would be great for overlanding and for the odd job I need it for (plus it's just BladeRunner cool), I just think it would be cheaper and better for the planet to get down to one car, we are not going to need two. We got the Aptera in a 2 for 1 deal, and my wife's sister got the other. We also live in the mountains. I don't think the Aptera is versatile enough for a single future vehicle, nor is the model 3. So I've really been thinking it may be a model Y future. I have a small trailer when I need to haul stuff, and it's got more room than my Subaru Crosstrek. So were really on the fence as to what to do. The CT will also just barely fit (I think) in my garage, so that may also be a deciding factor once we see the final specs (not convinced we've seen that). We have solar and battery (plus solar hot water). Not sure what we'll end up, but I can guarantee it will be electric! I'm already planning to modify my dual sport motorcycle to electric (just gotta hurry up with those 4680s). We are done with ICE even though I come from 2 generations of ICE mechanics - electric is just better.
