NY mayor takes climate protest to Trump Tower

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, seen as a potential Democratic presidential hopeful in 2020, on Monday organised a protest inside Trump Tower, charging that President Donald Trump’s buildings are among the city’s worst polluters. De Blasio led about 70 demonstrators chanting “our planet is not your profit,” and charged that former developer Trump’s buildings emitted as many greenhouse gases as 5,800 cars each year. Three weeks after the adopting a law that requires buildings of more than 2,300 m2 to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by 40 percent by 2030, De Blasio looked to be positioning himself at the head of the fight against global warming.  De Blasio said Trump Tower, where the president lived before moving to the White House, could be fined up to $500,000 a year if it does not respect the new law.
