Last week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stated that the city’s towering skyscrapers are its ‘biggest source of emissions,’ so he has vowed to ban steel and glass skyscrapers in the Big Apple!
Mayor Bill de Blasio stated on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ that…
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
He added that the city’s most iconic structures, the tall skyscrapers seen from miles away, are the “biggest source of emissions” in New York City. He added that if New York was to make a drastic change and implement the Green New Deal, they would switch to only renewable energy within just five years.
“We are putting clear, strong mandates” to lower emissions, and said that the owners of properties in New York, would face massive fines if they refused to retrofit their buildings.
However, what DeBlasio fails to note or admit, is that property owners would face massively burdensome costs in retrofitting their buildings, which would squeeze not only the property owners but the Middle Class and poor in massive proportions. That squeeze would further decimate the Middle Class, as the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.
DeBlasio went on to say that…
“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. If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings. 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. 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.”
Ultimately, if building owners are required to slash emissions by 30% by 2030 as De Blasio said, it wouldn’t only decimate the Middle and poor classes, but it would bankrupt the city, as it would create a mass exodus from the city! Furthermore, it is quite ironic, as De Blasio himself has been caught using gas guzzling private planes, huge SUV’s for personal use, and done everything in his own life to make a gigantic environmental footprint, that he is now demanding of those who are not part of the wealthy left-wing Elite class, like himself!
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.
Furthermore, DeBlasio held an Earth Day press conference, where he introduced a $14 million dollar “OneNYC 2050: Building a Strong and Fair city” plan, which he said would “prepare our city for the future.” However, the future that he is preparing New York City for, is not one of prosperity or even an environmentally clean earth, but instead a Red Marxist cesspool, where the masses are equally poor, while the Elitist few sit in the lap of luxury!
“Every day we wait is a day our planet gets closer to the point of no return. New York City’s Green New Deal meets that reality head on,” he said. “We are confronting the same interests that created the climate crisis and deepened inequality. There’s no time to waste. We’re taking action now before it’s too late.”
Ultimately, de Blasio says that the city will be carbon neutral by 2050, with 100 percent clean electricity, including hydropower, as he introduces by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Green New Deal, which has been endorsed by at least five candidates for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, especially Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). Also, over 40 other Democrats have signed on to the legislation.
The “Green New Deal” calls for the entire U.S. economy to switch to solar and wind power within ten years, guaranteed federal jobs and pay for every American, including for those who are unwilling to work, free healthcare, free college, and a number of other Socialist ideas that would turn America into a Marxist dystopia!
- Medicare for all, resulting in bare bones healthcare, which is substandard, or non-existant since most cannot even get in to be seen under Marxist-based healthcare!
- Making housing a federal right, with free housing for every American, despite Marxist housing always ending in everyone living equally in slums!
- Free government paid college, so they can indoctrinate America’s youth into the Marxist collective!
- Forgiveness of ALL STUDENT LOANS, which goes back to free college!
- Guaranteed Federal jobs, which means the elimination of the private sector, and the decimation of free enterprise and the American dream!
- Confiscation of guns, endining the 2nd Amendment
- Universal income, regardless of whether someone works OR NOT!
Even, Union leaders sent out a red flag warning about the consequences of their radical Marxist ‘Green New Deal’! In fact, the Unions are saying that it MAY LEAD TO POVERTY! They said…
‘Members are worried about putting food on the table’
Fox News reported that Labor unions are warning that the “Green New Deal” proposed is ‘vague and potentially dangerous’. The legislation has already come under fire by Conservatives who said that…
“the Green New Deal resolution for promising a job to “all people of the United States” — including those “unwilling to work,” according to a document published by Ocasio-Cortez, but later taken down and disavowed, after receiving criticisms from all sides of the catastrophic effects of the legislation to the nation, and the American people. Sadly, that doesn’t even include the fact that Ocasio-Cortez lied about it being from her website originally, as she tried to take credit for the disaster, before disavowing it!
Reuters reported that the United Mine Workers (UMWA) called Ocasio-Cortez’s legislative proposals “potentially dangerous” to their coal mining blue-collar workers!
UMWA Spokesman Phil Smith said…
“We’ve heard words like ‘just transition’ before, but what does that really mean? Our members are worried about putting food on the table.”
The Democrats Green New Deal even calls for the potential elimination of meat in America, as “farting cows” is labeled as a contributor to greenhouse gasses and so-called ‘global warming’!
Also, the deal calls for every building in the United States to be transitioned over to renewable by 2030, which experts say is not only impossible to do in 12 years, but they say that it alone would bankrupt our nation! Add on the fact that the deal calls for the elimination of airline travel, which they propose railroad travel instead, and the insanity begins to become more and more clear!
Finally, after having such a backlash from the not only Conservatives but Democrat organizations as well, Ocasio-Cortez quietly removed the “Green New Deal FAQ section of the plan, as it was making her and her Party into laughing stocks!
In fact, Fox News reported that…
The proposal’s rollout was overshadowed by confusion and uncertainty last week. A top adviser to Ocasio-Cortez admitted over the weekend that an official document posted by Ocasio-Cortez’s office contained a guarantee of economic security even for those “unwilling to work” — but not before he went viral in progressive circles for claiming the exact opposite, repeatedly, in an interview Friday with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
The Socialist-run University Cornell, tried to play damage control for Democrats, as the Law School Professor Robert Hockett denied that an FAQ and background materials from Ocasio-Cortez’s website stated that the Green New Deal will provide “Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” Later, when evidence began to surface, he has backtracked his defense. Also, the FAQ sent by Ocasio-Cortez’s team to NPR stated that…
“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s office quickly removed the documents from her website as they received the backlash, but the section titled “farting cows” is available on both NPR’s website, and Ocasio-Cortez’s Internet archiving service. In both cases, it points out that they guarantee “economic security” for those “unwilling to work!”
Regardless, Democrat 2020 Presidential Candidate Cory Booker told VegNews that he became a vegetarian in 1992 because he believed it was…
“the best way to live in accordance with the ideals and values” that he has.
He went on to say that he stopped eating eggs when he first transitioned into becoming vegan because it “didn’t align” with his spirit. He added the following in reference to getting rid of meat in America…
“I think it has to be a part of it. You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet. We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry. The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact.”
He went on to say that the meat industry has had a “devastating impact” of greenhouse gases produced. He added…
“The numbers just don’t add up. We will destroy our planet unless we start figuring out a better way forward when it comes to our climate change and our environment.”
Therefore, just like Ocasio-Cortez, Booker is looking to go to the extreme and even control what Americans are allowed to eat, and all in the name of ‘Environmental Socialism’!
Now, as most of the 2020 Presidential candidates in the Democrat Party are embracing the ‘Green New (Socialist) Deal’, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to be distancing herself from it. She said…
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi told Politico. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
In the end, ‘Global warming,’ and ‘climate change’ are terms manufactured to strike fear into the world’s population. It is designed to manipulate humans into believing that they need the government to help save mankind from themselves. For example, comments like in 2006, when a NASA scientist and leading global warming researcher declared that the world had only 10 years to avert a climate catastrophe! However, that time came and went! Also, in 2006, former Vice President of the United States and environmental activist Al Gore produced a motion picture, An Inconvenient Truth, which warned that ‘Climate Change’ would soon destroy coastal regions because of predicted ice melts resulting in rising seas. Gore claimed humankind had only 10 years to radically alter our way of living or the planet would be doomed, as it would reach the “tipping point”, and be irreversible! However, 12 years later, all is well and good! Now, House Representative and Marxist-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the world may be destroyed in 12 years if action is not taken on environmentalism! It is a classic Marxist ploy, which is designed to make the population believe that the government should control how ‘We the People’ spend our money, how much energy we utilize, how we run our businesses, and how we live our lives. In a nutshell, it gives the governments of the world control over our lives and the general population. It creates a ‘Ruling Elitist Class’ and then everyone else must be subservient to the Elites!
However, the only thing that will destroy the Earth, is mankind’s greed and thirst for power. In the end, it will not be ‘climate change’ that destroys our planet. Instead, it will be the misguided betrayal of mankind towards God and all that he has created that will result in our planet’s destruction, and mankind’s ultimate demise. Therefore, the ‘Green New Deal’ is simply a roadmap, designed to lead the Marxists radicals towards that destruction of freedom, and ultimately our Constitutional Republic!
