New York City Mayor Wants To Ban Buildings With Glass And Steel

I’ve mentioned before that NYC was looking to pass their own version of the Green New Deal (which AOC won’t demand be voted on in the House, and she, co-sponsor Senator Ed Markey, and most Democrats had hissy fits over voting for it in the Senate), and passed it. Now

Well, what’s the carbon footprint of Legos? Can they use them? How are you going to build a new building without steel? I guess some other type of metal, which would be incredibly more expensive. As for the windows, remember that landlords will be be required to retrofit “buildings over 25,000 square feet with new windows and insulation that would make the building’s more energy efficient” which will increase costs, which will be passed on to tenants.

Us, baby, it’s on us! No, really, it is on Us in Bill’s World (click the more tag)

Funny how leading Warmists also get Someone Else to pay for their Bad Weather creating lifestyle, eh? NYC has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world (this site ranks them #3). It is a city that depends on fossil fuels. Taxis, private vehicles, limos, buses, cop cars and fire trucks, ambulances, and all the trucks and ships which bring goods to and from the city. Think you can power all those skyscrapers with solar panels and wind turbines? Good luck.

Bill won’t give up his own Big Carbon lifestyle, but, he’ll make sure you do, and pay more for doing it.

    Why do you insist on misinforming your loyal toadies?

    Mayor de Blasio didn’t say he wanted to ban steel and glass buildings, did he?

    Can you answer a simple question?

    TEACH, are you motivated by ignorance, dishonesty, hate or all three?

  2. Mangoldielocks says:


    De Blasio says New York is banning “classic” skyscrapers: “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.

    WERE GOING TO BAN……sounds like he said he wanted to ban steel and glass buildings to me. I mean he actually said those words and your calling Teach a liar? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    TEACH, are you motivated by ignorance, dishonesty, hate or all three?

    Seriously Jeffy. You should look in the mirror after that response and apologize.

    Associated Press

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to introduce a bill banning new construction of glass skyscrapers as part of his efforts to reduce citywide greenhouse emissions by 30 percent.

      Oh wait I get it your going to parse the word BUILDING to wiggle out of your stupid comment.

      A skyscraper is a continuously habitable high-rise building that has over 40 floors and is taller than approximately 150 m (492 ft). Historically, the term first referred to buildings with 10 to 20 floors in the 1880s.

      I already thought of that.

      Definition of a building structure

      As a noun, a building is ‘a structure that has a roof and walls and stands more or less permanently in one place’; “there was a three-storey building on the corner”; “it was an imposing edifice”.

      However it cannot contain glass and steel because that is inefficient. AOC whispers in De Blasio’s ear. Make me your Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Ill show them commies how to build a real building that even the little pigs are safe in.

      We will make it out of paper so when a plane tries to fly into it, it will pass right thru and crash somewhere else.

      I have no reason to apologize. I didn’t call anyone a liar, you liar.

      Did you read the quote or just copy and paste?

      “If someone wants to build one of those things, they can take a whole lot of steps to make it energy efficient.”

      Sounds like they can build steel and glass skyscrapers as long as they are energy efficient, that is, NOT “classic” glass and steel buildings.

        All you ever do is call people liars. Or racists or rapists or white nationalists or rednecks.

        It’s how you try to weasel when it’s obvious you’re losing.

    If there’s no glass, then there are no windows. They’ll have to burn the lights all the time for the people who work and live in such tombs.

    Prior to steel and steel reinforced concrete, such high rises were constructed of masonry, brick and concrete block. ACI 531, a rational design code for concrete masonry first published in 1979, doesn’t allow reinforced walls higher than 36 times their thickness and nonreinforced walls higher than 20 times their thickness. Using that code, for a steel reinforced masonry wall four feet thick, the maximum allowable height is 144 feet, or roughly fourteen stories. But that doesn’t allow for any windows at all.

    Wait-the U.N. said a long time ago we only had till the year 2000..maybe, possibly, these people have no idea what they’re talking about.×386.jpg

    We’ll build them out of Legos! Right after Bill moves into his new quarters, a 2 man Coleman tent! Yep! Rickshaws for everybody (my own plan to combat climate change and obesity!) Bill will now travel in a cart pulled by 4 goats! He will hang glide to all out of town functions launched from atop the Empire State Building!

    I’m amused that a man who has never built anything feels qualified to tell everyone in America’s largest city how it should be done.
