The New York City Housing Authority paid-out a whopping $1,973 per apartment unit to upgrade pre-existing lighting fixtures; raising serious new doubts over the ‘Green New Deal’ and its demand that every single building in America convert to higher energy standards.
“The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
“Under Nycha’s Project Labor Agreement, electricians make $81 in base pay and $54 in fringe per hour, and overtime is usually time and a half. Add administrative and contracting expenses. All in, Nycha paid an average of $1,973 per apartment to install LEDs,” adds the report.
The lower energy bills associated with the LED bulbs would ultimately take over two-decades to pay for itself at that staggering price point.

APOCALYPSE NOW? Ocasio-Cortez Says US Has ’10 YEARS LEFT’ Before Climate Armageddon
Socialist superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a dire prediction to her fellow legislators this week; warning the United States has just “10 years left” to pass new laws that could avert a “cataclysmic climate disaster.”
The future Congresswoman posted the threat on social media, writing “We have 10 years left to plan and implement a Green New Deal before cataclysmic climate disaster. Reinstating the Select Committee is exactly what we need to do.”
Thank you, @NancyPelosi.

Cortez’ comments come on the heels of her first full week at the US Capitol, where the youngest Congresswoman in US history claimed staffers repeatedly mistook her for an “intern” or “spouse.”
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
