Summary
This article examines British Columbia's environmental tax policies related to transportation. The efficacy of the carbon tax is compared with the impact of other initiatives in the province, which include vehicle emissions inspections, a "cash-for-clunkers" program (Scrap-It) for accelerated vehicle retirement, and subsidies for the purchase of hybrid and electric vehicles. The authors argue that the carbon tax is the preferred option, but vehicle inspections and the Scrap-It program have achieved positive results as well. Subsidizing hybrid and electric vehicles is viewed as a poor option, since there appear to have been few incremental purchases in response to the subsidy
