They would all be pushing for pay as you drive auto insurance. I know that insurance isn't very cool or sexy, like some of the high-tech solutions for global warming. But pay as you drive insurance has the great advantage of being something that could in principle have a big impact beginning tomorrow, and it does not face massive political opposition. There is nothing else that comes close in terms of its potential impact on a short-term basis.
Not going to happen, but interesting idea.
