f 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.

You must live in NYC. :)

This kinda crap was going on in Seattle, so I simply moved to rural Kentucky 8 years ago, to a home and farm I bought 11 years ago.

Other than marrying my wife it was the best move of my life. Visit seattle sometime as it is today. My choice is vindicated in spades.

Do not build any more buildings or houses.

Just go sit under some trees.

The Twin Towers was a bit of a problem for geenies:

-Asbestos removal too costly.
-Energy hogs requiring massive year round HVAC maintenance.
-Half empty most of the time.

Suddenly the problem was solved.

Before they were attacked physically, they were attacked in the press by the pols.

Solar panels from top to bottom with TV screens in the offices showing what outside looks like - preferably some view other than New York.

Just construct all buildings out of eco-friendly sustainable wood. What could go wrong?

A lot of people are disgusted by my signature next to my name, but somehow it sums up the left for me.
They will have us all living in eco-shacks made of poo while they live in mansions

Where will he put the windmills that’ll power the offices in the tall buildings? Will the elevators be hand-cranked? After all, that’s very efficient. Toilets out in the back yard. Wait, there’s no back yard.

What he wants is the elimination of the industrial civilization that we have. Him first to the straw-thatched huts.

We used to put these people in asylums. Now they’re running the country and turned it into an asylum
