NY'ers sure are idiots: Bill de Blasio says Green New Deal will ban ‘inefficient’ steel and glass skyscrapers

Bill de Blasio says Green New Deal will ban ‘inefficient’ steel and glass skyscrapers

If the Big Apple is to become the Green Apple, it will have to ban the steel and glass towers that form its signature skyline, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said that city’s most iconic structures – the tall skyscrapers seen from miles away – are the “biggest source of emissions” in New York City. The drastic change, and a switch to only renewable energy within five years, are necessary for Gotham to embrace the Green New Deal, de Blasio said.

“We are putting clear, strong mandates” to lower emissions, he said, warning property owners will face massive fines unless buildings are retrofitted.

“The first of any major city on the Earth to say to building owners, ‘you've got to clean up your act, you've got to retrofit, you've got to save energy,’” he said. “If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings.”

He continued: “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, but we’re not going to allow what we used to see in the past.

De Blasio said private building owners will be required to slash their emissions by 30 percent by 2030.

In the same conversation that he was touting renewable energy and reducing emissions, de Blasio also defended his use of a gas-guzzling SUV for his daily 11-mile trips from Gracie Mansion to his Brooklyn gym.

“Let’s make clear, this is just a part of my life,” he said. “I come from that neighborhood in Brooklyn. That’s my home. I go there on a regular basis to stay connected to where I come from and not be in a bubble that I think for a lot of politicians is a huge problem.”

The Green New Deal, championed by fellow New Yorker, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Washington, is a radical measure that called for a massive overhaul of the nation’s economy and energy use to cut emissions.

The deal calls for the U.S. to shift away from fossil fuels such as oil and coal and replace them with renewable sources such as wind and solar power. It also calls for the virtual elimination of greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming by 2030.

It is estimated to cost up to $93 trillion, or $600,000 per household, according to studies.

Republicans have railed against the proposal, saying it would devastate the economy and trigger massive tax increases. A test vote on the proposal recently failed in the Senate with no senator voting to begin debate on the legislation.


WHAT A STUPID F#CKING IDIOT!!!!!!

THESE GODAM DEMOCRAP PIECES OF SH#T!!!!!

Idiot Bill de Blasio is preparing to take NYC back to the stone age — by making “glass and steel” skyscrapers extinct

Yabba-Dabba-Don’t.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is preparing to take New York City back to the stone age — by making “glass and steel” skyscrapers extinct.

Still flirting with a run for president, the mayor held an Earth Day press conference on Monday to announce his plan to fight climate change with a “Green New Deal” — including a bill designed to eliminate new glass-fronted towers from the city skyline.

“We are going to introduce legislation to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers that have contributed so much to global warming,” de Blasio said.


“They have no place in our city or our Earth anymore.”

Despite Hizzoner’s insistence on repeatedly using the word “ban,” he later admitted his legislation would actually just tighten the city’s energy code to make it prohibitively expensive to develop glassy high-rises.

“It’s literally going to be a much higher standard and the only way that kind of design would even be acceptable is with a whole host of other changes were made to compensate because those buildings were inherently very inefficient,” he said.

Mark Chambers, director of Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, was forced to clarify that “it doesn’t mean buildings can’t use glass anymore.”

He pointed to the recently erected American Copper Building in Murray Hill — a K-shaped structure clad in copper and glass — as an example of a structure that would still be acceptable.

De Blasio cited unspecified buildings in the Hudson Yards development as “examples of the wrong way to do things.”

Hudson Yards developer Related later hit back by pointing out that it has just opened a glass office building that is certified LEED platinum — the US Green Building Council’s highest designation — and is “one of New York’s most energy-efficient Class A office towers.”

The mayor’s Green New Deal — a title borrowed from freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s vague and pricey plan to cut carbon emissions — will hold builders to such sky-high standards that even developers who’ve focused on staying eco-friendly will be punished.

Last week, the City Council passed a bill to slap strict greenhouse emissions caps on private buildings exceeding 25,000 square feet by forcing them to retrofit pipes, heating systems, lights and other utilities by 2024 or face big fines.

The Bank of America Tower on 42nd Street, for example, is certified LEED platinum, but developer the Durst Organization calculated that it would still face $2.5 million in fines under the new bill when 2024 rolls around.

“The fine will escalate annually from there,” chief development officer Alexander Durst told Crain’s.

Critics say the new measures are unrealistic — there likely aren’t even enough contractors to get all 50,000 affected buildings up to code in time, and the pie-in-the-sky targets will just turn businesses away from the Big Apple.

Meanwhile, smaller buildings, hospitals, NYCHA housing complexes, and “affordable” housing won’t be subject to the same rules.

“The caps that they are expected to meet are unrealistic,” said Carl Hum, general counsel for the Real Estate Board of New York, said of office towers.

“The law doesn’t take into account what the building does. Tech and media are energy intensive. You’re going to have an owner who will think twice on who they rent out to avoid fines.”

Hum said the glass and steel “ban” announcement had blindsided the industry.

One expert said she expected “pushback” because glassy buildings are all the rage among designers and a hit with customers.

“I think architects are in love with the uniform skin,” said Hillary Brown, a professor at the City College of New York’s School of Architecture.

“It’s just been a trend for so long and I think we need to use architectural imagination in considering other building enclosure treatments.”

De Blasio said he doesn’t care what one of the most important industries in the city thinks.

I agitate her at times. I don't ignore anyone.

now if she said, Barry I hope you die from climate change, I wouldn't complain about that. Cuz that's silly.
