    Another example of climate spillover is the proliferation of electric muscle cars, which partially negates the advantages of the automotive electric transition. The only really economically rational way to minimize this and similar rebounds is to tax carbon at the point of extraction. In general, Pigovian taxes are the correct way to mitigate Jevon’s paradox.
