NY mayor takes protest to Trump Tower

NY mayor takes protest to Trump Tower

De Blasio, who is expected to jump into the Democratic primary any time now, also brought out some Trump supporters who rode the infamous Trump Tower escalator with some homemade signs for the mayor. We are showing that you can make real, progressive change on the ground here.

The fines are part of legislation passed by the city council in April that seeks to cut planet-warming emissions from the city's largest buildings.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is blowing hot air towards President Donald Trump, warning The Don that his properties are pumping excessive greenhouse gas emissions, which could result in millions of dollars in fines. De Blasio expanded municipal climate policies by outlining his city-level "Green New Deal" (not to be confused with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's own statewide version, or Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's much-discussed federal Green New Deal, which in its most clearly formed iteration is still just a non-binding resolution).

"It's so nice of them to serenade us at Trump Tower". This means the Trump Organization is on track to be hit with fines of $2.1 mllion every year from 2030, unless its buildings are made more environmentally friendly. "We don't back down in New York City, do we?", De Blasio asked, stirring the crowd to reply "No".

He noted that Trump Tower appeared to be "cranking music" in the lobby, making it more hard for spectators to hear the speakers.

"Had the weather cooperated we would have been outside", de Blasio said. The city plans to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Ticket information for the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final will be announced across dcfc.co.uk in due course. Norwich and Sheffield United were promoted automatically after finishing as the top two in the regular season.

Buildings that fail to meet the marks will be punished by major fines. "The approach taken today will have a negative impact on our ability to attract and retain a broad range of industries, including technology, media, finance, and life sciences, that provide opportunity and continued economic growth that is so important for our city".

NY has positioned itself as a bulwark against Trump administration attempts to dismantle action to address climate change.

"We will do what's necessary to combat the climate crisis".

The new regulations on large buildings echo a central plank of the Green New Deal, a federal plan put forward by the NY congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that calls for retrofitting all buildings for energy efficiency within 10 years.

"Politicians in Washington don't have to look across the aisle in Congress to know what a Green New Deal is - they can look across the country, to Los Angeles", Garcetti said. "L.A.is leading the charge, with a clear vision for protecting the environment and making our economy work for everyone".
