Every week, the Democrats running in 2020 somehow manage to make their solutions for climate change sound even crazier.
During an MSNBC event on climate change, Andrew Yang suggested that in the near future, people might not privately own cars anymore.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Yang: Climate Change May Require Elimination of Car Ownership
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.”…
“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.

Does anyone really believe our leaders in Washington DC are going to give up their cars?
Thanks for cluing us in on your desire to be a dictator! We'll make sure not to vote for you. @AndrewYang
