"His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City", de Blasio said.
According to city officials, the president's eight largest NY properties pump out around 27,000 tons of planet-warming gases every year, the equivalent of 5,800 cars.
The Trump Building at 40 Wall Street is estimated to face a $164,565 per year.
Trump's worst offending building, according to de Blasio, is the Trump International Hotel & Tower at 1 Central Park West, which would pay more than $850,000 if it remains out of compliance with the law in 2030.
A Monday rally at Trump Tower was supposed to be a big political statement by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is considering a presidential run, to put President Trump on notice over the city's 'Green New Deal, ' but it backfired on the mayor when Trump supporters heckled him at the press conference.Читайте также: Longview Pilots Onex's Westjet Takeover - Tue., May 14, 2019
"It doesn't matter who you are, even the president of the United States, you have to obey the laws of New York City", de Blasio said at a rally in the lobby of Trump Tower, the site of President Donald Trump's private home and business headquarters.
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. "Cut your emissions or we'll cut something you really care about: We'll take your money".
City officials claim that the Trump buildings emit 27,000 tons of greenhouse gases annually, according to the newspaper's report.
The new standards, hailed by advocates as the toughest action by any city on climate change so far, takes aim at the biggest source of greenhouse gases in NY, where buildings account for more than two-thirds of emissions. The Climate Mobilization Act mandates buildings larger than 25,000 square feet reduce emissions by 40 percent by 2040 and 80 percent by 2050. "If people want to offer their opposition, it doesn't change me one bit", he said. In New York City, we're perfectly tough. The city has vowed to divest its pension funds of fossil fuel investments and attempted to sue major oil companies for their role in the climate crisis. 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.
The grinning de Blasio again told reporters he is still unsure whether he will run for president himself.
The mayor's statement said that buildings produce nearly 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in New York City.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
