De Blasio Declares War on Skyscrapers

Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York City, proclaimed at an Earth Day press conference his intention to impose a local version of the Khmer Vert’s Green New Deal. It rigidly restricts building glass and steel skyscrapers in the forest of such skyscrapers that is NYC:

“We are going to introduce legislation to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers that have contributed so much to global warming,” de Blasio said.

“They have no place in our city or our Earth anymore.”

The assertion that skyscrapers ever have or ever will measurably influence world temperatures is preposterous. But moonbattery is all about symbolism, even if its disastrous effects are concrete. Skyscrapers represent the triumph of man over his environment. Radical environmentalism represents reverting back into subsistence level savages lest our accomplishments affront the weather gods. A progressive will naturally want to sacrifice the former to the latter.

Since skyscrapers have no place in his city or on earth, it isn’t enough to forbid building new ones. It stands to reason that the ones already standing should come down, lest the climate find them offensive.

You might think this raging hatred for skyscrapers would touch a nerve with New Yorkers who remember 9/11. But New Yorkers have forgotten all about 9/11; otherwise, they could never have elected AOC, who squeaks that we should have just let the terror attacks slide.

The legislation de Blasio is pushing would not actually ban skyscrapers. It would only make them prohibitively expensive to build. But we know where he and the people who elected him are coming from. The very concept of achievement should be torn down, leaving us to curl up in the corner of a dark cold cave and feel guilty about nothing. That is liberalism in a nutshell.

On a tip from Varla.
