Democrat Presidential Candidate Yang: Climate Change May Require Elimination of Car Ownership

via Free Beacon.
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.

Ya know what a massive problem for the Dem party is?  They focus all their attention on urban issues and seem to forget the vast swaths of land that are the suburbs and rural areas.

There is no way in hell any scheme of this type would work in a free market. He would in essence revamp our economic system, and in addition establish a new society somehow.

I'll either be dead or close to it by the time this kicks in so no big deal for me but wow. 

These people have some weird plans for the future...if they win that is.
