Donald Trump buildings face millions in climate fines

Donald Trump buildings face millions in climate fines”

Mayor Bill de Blasio and federal authorities will miss their self-imposed deadline to select the next top boss for the city's embattled Housing Authority for the second time, the administration admitted in a statement released late Monday.

"President Trump, you're on notice", de Blasio said.

"Well, everybody, the Green New Deal - the New York City Green New Deal is here to stay", de Blasio told the crowd, while behind him a small group of Trump supporters could be seen riding the escalators. "Cut your emissions or we'll cut something you really care about".

"It's so nice of them to serenade us at Trump Tower".

The Trump International Hotel and Tower faces the most fines and will receive an annual penalty of nearly $851,000 in 2030 if renovations are not made, the statement said. After hitting the 40 percent mark in 2030, buildings will be required to cut emissions by 80 percent by 2050.

But one protester holding an "LGBT for Trump" banner wasn't impressed with the mayor's message and accompanying threats, telling the Post, "This is bullsh**".

At times it was hard to hear the mayor: his protest was countered by a score of pro-Trump protesters who shouted "This is not my mayor!" and waved banners reading "Trump 2020" and "worst mayor ever" as they went up and down the escalators.

Under New York City's Green New Deal, which was passed last month, buildings of 25,000 square feet or more must reduce emissions by 40 percent from 2005 levels.

The law on buildings emissions is part of the city's Green New Deal initiative, which aims to reduce emissions 30 percent by 2030 and adhere to the standards of the Paris Agreement, an worldwide pact on climate change from which Trump withdrew the United States.

"They're just music to my ears, because it means we're doing something important in New York City", he said. "This is the city that has suffered because of global warming and we are still vulnerable", said de Blasio, referencing the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

He added, "I expect cities all around the world, all around the country, are going to look at this plan and are going to adopt it".

De Blasio also called on his supporters to "scream loud enough so they can hear it all the way to the White House, 'Our planet, not your profit'".

Buildings that fail to meet the marks will be punished by major fines. "New York City will not survive without a radical action to stop climate change". The aim is to make the city carbon neutral by 2050 with an emphasis on forcing all private and public building owners to modernize their infrastructure. "New York City is providing both with its Green New Deal". "With flames on our hillsides and floods in our streets, cities can not wait another moment to confront the climate crisis with everything we've got".
