Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is pointing to former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg as an “effective ally” in his environmentally-friendly transportation plans.

Schumer is calling for a “big, bold and green infrastructure bill” as well as what he’s calling his “Clean Cars for America” proposal.

Schumer says he also wants to talk about the Gateway Program in New York, the renovation plan for the Northeast Corridor.

Buttigieg is President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. Secretary of Transportation. The two were slated for a virtual meeting on Thursday, Dec. 31, but opted to meet privately instead.

Next up…roundabouts for everyone!

And we’ll take all that energy being used on the highways and byways of America and transfer it to an electrical grid that is doing its best to run A/C on a hot day. The future is both stupid and dark.

What did dems and warmists use to read before candles? Light bulbs and electricity. Idiots.

Not to mention that making all those batteries isn’t very clean or green. At least carbon can be scrubbed by plants, but lithium and other battery components are just flat out toxic… Kindred to the Democrats, actually!
