Electric car direct subsidy $7,500 per vehicle

Cars promote sprawl and growth. Cars and car infrastructure are subsidized. Growth is the biggest threat to the biosphere. Electric cars are just another excuse to subsidize growth.

dailykos: "Most of us Nissan Leaf drivers got our cars via a Nissan lease deal. It’s a win-win: Nissan gets its Leafs out the door, bags the $7500 Federal rebate, plus some of the car’s value from us (as down/monthly payments), then gets the car back in 2-3 years to sell it again. Meanwhile, because Nissan factors the full $7.5k into the lease deal, we get a much cheaper lease than for comparable ICE cars, and can partake in the EV revolution without the risk of getting stuck with a badly depreciated, outdated tech product."
