Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she has been mostly flying commercial in an effort to combat climate change but said her campaign is trying to look at other ways to reduce its carbon footprint.
What specific steps have you taken in your campaign to ensure that your campaigns environmental impact is limited as possible? a listener asked.Host Laura Knoy pointed out that Tom Steyer (D) recently told NHPR that he is only flying commercial, adding, theres a huge carbon footprint of a private jet, so thats the sacrifice he said he was willing to make. How about you?
So Ive mostly been flying commercial, Warren said, explaining that her campaign has been trying to look at other ways to reduce its carbon footprint.
Its everything from the kind of car we drive and down to, do we purchase offsets? Can we make that work s a way to try to reduce the footprint, she said, failing to elaborate if her campaigns proposals have come to fruition.
One of the things that has been so interesting to me in the whole area of climate has been the good ideas that have come from lots of different campaigns. One I just want to get a pitch in here for is when Gov. Inslee was running, she said:
He talked about the importance of regulating three industries that by 2028 no new buildings, no new houses that have any carbon footprints zero carbon footprint on new buildings. By 2030, all newly built cars and trucks zero carbon footprint. And by 2035, all electric production zero carbon footprint.
We do those three things, we cut carbon emission in our country by 70 percent. Think about that, three things, 70 percent reduction, she said.

I haven’t flown since W. the dumbass invented the TSA.
I am really fighting climate change.
“I’m a little Indian girl - living in a wigwam world!”
I just fought climate change flying commercial to Italy!
Riiigght. Because Flying Commercial only burns up 1,000 carbon credits.
Those up front in First Class are burning 10,000 carbon credits.
Is “’Mostly’ flying commercial” comparable to ‘a little bit pregnant’?
Can’t she just ride her broom?
“...think about that. Three things...”
three things which will absolutely completely destroy the US economy, cause mass starvation, and turn the country into a third-world hellhole
Maybe she does, already.
Does she (or any climate nazi) buy ‘carbon credits’ to ‘off-set’ the co2 they’re adding to the atmosphere?
She already emits zero sense.
Iron Eyes Cody was actually and Italian American Actor.
Like to see Vinegar Lizzie in a 25 hp ultralight. Even more carbon efficient than a broom.
She thinks Earth is the size of her Bathroom and she can control it , Idiot
UAW workers to the polls!
Hey, Pocahontas, how much of a carbon footprint does it leave in the production of beer we all saw you swilling? Takes quite a bit of metal equipment to produce, I would think. How did that metal get manufactured? Plus all the employees DRIVING their gas guzzling vehicles to work to make your beer. Oh, and the delivery trucks delivering your beer to your local 7-11 store.
