The Democrats are dredging up the global warming hoax again, hoping to make the United States a third world country. Of course the last gasoline powered car would not be sold in 2039 or 2038 or even 2037. Who is going to buy a car when it will be illegal to run in a couple of years?
But, they don’t really expect to pass the bill. They are hoping that people will blame Republicans for destroying the Earth. I think they really believe that everyone buys into that hoax. But poll after poll shows that is not true. And with all the gun control they are throwing around, it’s almost as if they want to lose the White House.
Democrats will introduce legislation to completely phase out the use of gasoline-powered cars by mandating that only zero-emissions vehicles can be sold by 2040.
“When I take a lungful of air in this moment, it has 30 percent more carbon in it than when I was born,” Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley, the bill’s main sponsor told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. “That is a change that has never happened in a single generation of humankind on this planet.”
The bill is co-sponsored by Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Bernie Sanders of Vermont. California Rep. Mike Levin will introduce a House version of the bill, HuffPo reported.
Harris, Gillibrand and Sanders are running for president in 2020, and all of them co-sponsored the Green New Deal resolution. However, no Democrat voted for the Green New Deal in March when it came up for a vote in the Senate.
