On Friday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat Gray and Keith Malinak were joined by "Chewing the Fat," host Jeff Fisher, and discussed Mayor Bill De Blasio and New York City's version of the Green New Deal.

In this clip, Pat highlighted an interview that de Blasio did with CNBC and announced that New York had passed legislation, the building emissions bill, which aimed to accomplish the following:

  • The New York City Council passes legislation setting new standards for greenhouse gas emissions from buildings.
  • The measure aligns with one of the central pillars of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.
  • The bill aims to slash planet-warming pollution from city buildings by 40% over the next decade.

According to de Blasio, the city of New York planned to impose a mandate on all building owners requiring that building be up to code over the next 12 years. Also, all builders will no longer be allowed to build glass and steel skyscrapers. Builders who do not comply with the new mandate could face a tax of up to $1 million.

"We're actually making the New Green Deal come alive in New York City," de Blasio said.

Pat considered what material would de Blasio find acceptable to support the structure of a skyscraper; Wood? Straw? Concrete?
