House Democrats outlined their vision for sweeping climate legislation Wednesday, offering a first look at a bill that would push the U.S. to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Wednesdays white paper provides the framework that lawmakers in July promised to deliver by early 2020 a broad climate bill targeting every major sector of the economy.
Were treating this climate crisis like the emergency that it is, House Energy and Commerce Chair Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) said of the so-called CLEAN Future Act.
The measure includes a requirement that utilities work toward 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2050, a mandate that includes a carbon credit trading system. The transportation sector would also have to be emissions free by that deadline, as the Environmental Protection Agency ratchets up increasingly tight vehicle standards. And buildings and industry would also have to clean up their act, using materials from more environmentally friendly sources while meeting tighter building codes.
States would play an active role in developing plans to ensure their economies meet the national standard.
And funding it all would be a first-of-its-kind National Climate Bank, mobilizing private and public funding to boost technological innovation as well as projects to bolster against the effects of climate change.

“Democrats outline sweeping legislation to make U.S. carbon neutral by 2050”
How about India and China? Gonna make them carbon neutral also?
All these Rat creeps do is propose plan after plan to steal money from American citizens.
DOA in the Senate.

Exactly. This is designed to make life in general so incredibly expensive the average person will lose all upward mobility and depend more and more on government help to live. Policies like this will decimate the economy for the average person.
Leftist policies create a wealthy elite class, decimate the middle class and create a huge under/poor class.
“National Climate Bank”? So it’s graft, a kickback, and pork, all in one — the Dems are gonna LOVE that. Might even make up for the Iranian and Ukranian bucks.
If they try it, no worries. The revolution will start long before that.
Tickets to the guillotine sessions will be rare and expensive.
The only way around it will be if the smart people (e.g, NOT social science/politics/studies cretins) get fusion working.
Of course, there’s always gun confiscation in the dimbulb’s hope chest. If they try that, see the first couple of sentences above.
Lemme guess, this is based on the Rev. Jim Jones solution.
Any day now Trump is going to open up the manufacturing and sale of Freon and DDT again. Yeah!!!!
The Greta Thuneberg Bank.
and yet did none of this while they had the house, senate and presidency. This is just to rile their base up with look the repubs want us all to die.
