Bloomberg Calls for Cars to Be All-Electric by 2035

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg wants all new cars to be electric by 2035 and new buildings to produce no carbon emissions by 2025. Those proposals are part of clean energy plans he released this week. They build on his proposal to cut U.S. carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. That’s a less ambitious proposal than the Green New Deal that many of his competitors have embraced. The Green New Deal calls for achieving net-zero carbon emissions within 10 years. Bloomberg’s plans do not include total costs or specifics on how they’d be paid for. The newest plan was released Friday and outlines how Bloomberg would reduce pollution from cars and trucks.
