New York City approved a sweeping climate legislation package Thursday that is being compared to the Green New Deal.
In a 45-2 vote, the city legislature passed the Climate Mobilization Act, which aims to enact the largest carbon reduction measures of any city globally.
The article goes on to state the following:
At the heart of the package is a bill that would require New York’s largest residential and commercial buildings to reduce carbon emissions 40 percent by 2040 and 80 percent by 2050. In comparison, the Green New Deal resolution introduced in Congress aims to get the U.S. electric grid running on 100 percent green energy by 2030.
It’s a new day in New York City. Climate change is an existential threat and we must rise to the occasion. The @NYCCouncil and @Costa4NY are taking aggressive action with our Climate Mobilization Act. https://t.co/JPqg6xKWVm

New York City just passed the Climate Mobilization Act: the largest climate solution put forth by any city, ever. By 2030, we can cut nearly 6 million tons of emissions, create 26,700 green jobs, and most importantly save 43 lives per year. Old city, new tricks, green horizons. pic.twitter.com/k3teIqW8St
