    The problem with these initiatives is that they are less than 50% effective, over half the money is paid in interest.

    And why are the rebates always for new cars? If you can afford a new vehicle, you don't need a subsidy.

    This proposition could have been much more effective by offering rebates for pre-2000 model year vehicles (the real polluters on the road), factoring emissions into vehicle registration fees, and requiring car companies that want to do business in California to sell a fleet that is at least 20% natural gas, electric, etc.

      In Colorado, you can increase your tax credit up to double but not exceeding the cost on a conversion to an alternative fuel if you can demonstrate that the conversion in some way replaced a car (that is, the car is no longer in Colorado) that is 10 years old or older. I'm thinking that a potentially newly converted Impala is going to replace some $200 brand POS old gasoline car. I just wonder if the fireworks stand just north of the CO border will want such a gasoline car.

        This was explained to me by a friend in the auto salvage industry,when older cars are junked, big industry's can buy the emission foot print of that car.In other words that car can no longer pollute,so now the big industry can add to there pool of pollution credits and not have to update there emissions.
