Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang says the United States may have to eliminate private car ownership to combat climate change by 2050 to wean the economy off of fossil fuels. Privately owned cars would be replaced by a “constant roving fleet of electric cars.” Yang’s climate plan calls for nearly $5-trillion in spending over the next 20 years. The plan also includes a zero-emissions standard for all new cars by 2030 and hundreds of billions of dollars in investments in emission-free ground and air transportation. [The collectivist agenda always has been to prevent people from being independently mobile, to make them 100% dependent on government transportation systems. It’s not about the environment but about people control.] GEG

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said the United States may have to eliminate private car ownership to combat climate change during MSNBC’s climate forum at Georgetown University Thursday morning.

He told MSNBC host Ali Velshi that “we might not own our own cars” by 2050 to wean the United States economy off of fossil fuels, describing private car ownership as “really inefficient and bad for the environment.” Privately owned cars would be replaced by a “constant roving fleet of electric cars.”

A video posted by the GOP War Room shows Velshi asking Yang what measures he sees the world taking to fight climate change by 2050.

“You have this ability to envision the future, right, with your proposals on universal basic income. You’ve played the whole chess game out and you see what it looks like on the other end. Play the chess game out on climate change,” Velshi said. “What does the world look like to you in 2050? What physically do you think we will do differently than we do today that will result in us fighting climate change?”

“Well I mentioned before that we might not own our own cars. Our current car ownership and usage model is really inefficient and bad for the environment,” Yang said.

“You guys all probably agree with this because you’re quite young,” he told the Georgetown University crowd, adding an anecdote about driving a 1985 Honda Accord as a young man.

Yang then proposed an alternative to individuals owning their own cars.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

This looks like a lot of fun. After you come for my weapons, if able, see how successful you are in getting my truck and car out of the driveway.
