    Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Wednesday that her administration would mandate that any new buildings built from 2028 onwards must be carbon neutral.

    "What scares me is every time you go back to the scientists, they tell you two things. It's worse than we thought and we have less time," Warren said during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "That means we've got to be willing to do things, for example, like regulation. By 2028, no new buildings, no new houses, without a zero carbon footprint."

    Warren also backed regulation that would make light-duty trucks and cars carbon neutral by 2030, and all electricity production carbon neutral by 2035. Additionally, Warren said she would prohibit any new drilling either on federal lands or offshore, and promised to make "environmental justice" a major focus of her fight against climate change.

    So her policy would only take affect after she left office of her second term. Not while she was in office to face the brunt critizem for it.

    Government-created housing shortages always do wonders for the cost of housing!

    This might be possible someday, but it's not possible now. Even once it's possible, it will be some time before it is affordable for everyone, like anything else.
