House Democrats unveil ambitious climate package, steering toward a net-zero economy by 2050


The nation's automakers would manufacture only electric cars. Utilities would have to stop producing pollution linked to climate change. And the federal government would double its investment in mass transit.

All this and more is being proposed by House Democrats on Tuesday under a plan aimed at bringing the U.S. economy's greenhouse gas emissions - including carbon dioxide and methane - to zero by 2050.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., will release an ambitious package of climate proposals that call for a combination of government mandates, tax incentives and new infrastructure.
