I think my cars are PZEV vehicles too. They have zero emissions when they are parked and some when they are moving. One option that would eliminate the emissions in other states would be to go a ZEYMSV (Zero Emissions Yucca Mountain Storage Vehicle). But I guess that would have it’s drawbacks too.
I’m glad that you are feeling better. Your rant is my education.
Rant aside (which I agree with…inaccuracy in advertising), I didn’t know I could pay a little extra to get a car that puts out lower emissions. When I get ready to buy a new vehicle, I’ll investigate the same.
Kathy, I don’t know how universal the availability of that kind of option is, but its worth looking into. Even better of course would be to have those kinds of options standard on all cars. That’s one thing California is good at and ahead of the game relative to most other states and the feds, forcing manufacturers to do more about environmental issues.
I agree with your rant. I also believe there are many, many more complexities to this issue that I don’t have time to write about. I think ZEIMBY is the next frontier for public energy policy research – thanks for the suggestion.
No problem Jeffrey. Be sure and write a spot for me in your next ZEIMBY research grant!
