New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled-down on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ over the weekend; vowing to “ban classic glass and steel skyscrapers” to reduce the Big Apple’s carbon footprint.
“We are making the Green New Deal come alive here in New York City,” said de Blasio. “It’s three very basic ideas. One, the biggest source of emissions in New York City is buildings.”
De Blasio says New York is banning "classic" skyscrapers: "We're going to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers, which are incredibly inefficient. If someone wants to build one of those things, they can take a whole lot of steps to make it energy efficient." pic.twitter.com/aEHNSOxXuk

“We are going to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers which are incredibly inefficient,” he continued. “If someone wants to build one of those things they can take a whole lot of steps to make it energy efficient, but we’re not going to allow what we’ve seen in the past.”
