WASHINGTON - Democratic U.S. presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg unveiled a plan on Friday to slash greenhouse gas emissions from transportation by making electric vehicles accessible to even low-income families and improving access to public transit.
Bloombergs plan calls for all new U.S. cars to be electric by 2035, reductions of diesel pollution with electric trucks and buses, improved access to public transit, and the building of high-speed rail.
He wants to offer low and moderate-income communities a Clean Cars for All program with rebates for trading in old cars for electric ones.
Bloomberg, like other candidates, wants to reverse the policies of Republican President Donald Trump who is slashing rules on environment regulation while boosting output of fossil fuels.
But he is not putting a dollar figure on his climate plans because of the complexity of the issues, a difference from most of the other candidates.

He’s so in favor of this idea he drives around in a SUV.
By 2035 Bloomberg will also ban sodas, reds meat, and smoking.
Where is he going to build the nuclear power stations to generate all the electricity?
Well, for the Peasants, anyway. The swells in government power will still enjoy those things.
First up: North Dakota.
If you want a nanny state vote for Bloomberg.
How, exactly, are we going to create a car that can go 300+ miles (while running the A/C) on a charge, and recharge in three minutes?
And he will mandate that all these electric cars only has small cup holders. No big gulps will fit in these holders.
A dangerous control freak
“By 2035 Bloomberg will also ban sodas, reds meat, and smoking.”
By 2035 Bloomberg will have assumed room temperature. If he gets his way, none of this madness will be his problem.
and hateful, vindictive
After the Rat Party has succeeded in keeping their promise to shut down every coal fired...gas fired...oil fired...and nuclear powered plant having 50,000,000 huge batteries to be recharged every day is a great idea.
Communists have big plans for everyone and every facet of life..
No way I’ve giving up my Dodge PU with a V-10
I was going to ask if he walks, or rides a bike wherever he goes. Surely he doesn't fly anywhere. I wonder if his plans include turning military vehicles to electric.
America could be Bloomberg free by 2035...
Restrict citizen’s from being mobile and all that will accompany that and also disarm them, a Constitutional USA becomes history
Some of the allegedly chauvinistic lines were printed in a birthday gift for Bloomberg in 1990 and consisted of a 32-page book of one-liners compiled by his workers entitled 'The Portable Bloomberg: The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg.'
Does this fellow measure-up ??
