New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio threw his full-support behind Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ this week; warning humanity has just “twelve years” left to “turn the tide” and save planet Earth.
“We have twelve years to turn the tide in our fight to save our planet. TWELVE. We don’t have the benefit of a federal government to lead the way and we can’t wait for this president to wake up. It’s on us to make radical change.#GreenNewDeal#EarthDay,” posted the Mayor on social media.
We have twelve years to turn the tide in our fight to save our planet.

De Blasio’s comments come hours after he vowed to “ban classic” glass and steel skyscraper construction from New York City to help reduce the Big Apple’s carbon footprint.
