Climate change activists die-in at New York City Hall to promote gas-free New York bill

New York City (WABC)-Climate activists held a die-in outside New York City Hall on Thursday in an effort to raise awareness of the climate crisis affecting New Yorkers, residents of the world.

The demonstration was held to commemorate the lives lost in the wreckage of Hurricane Aida, which caused a historic flood and caused the first flash flood emergency in New York City.

They also demand that Chair Corey Johnson and the city council pass the gas-free NYC bill, Intro 2317. This will end the use of hydraulic fracturing gas in new construction and intestinal repairs.

Activists say that the extraction and combustion of fossil fuels such as hydraulic fracturing gas supercharges storms like Aida, making natural disasters more deadly and frequent.

Hurricane Ida, which killed 14 people in New York City and caused massive property damage, warns of what would happen if the city council did not enact bold policies to tackle the climate crisis head-on. They insist.

According to experts, the building is responsible for about 70% of New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Activists hope that the extreme events seen this summer will not reach the new normal.

This day is important as it is part of the National Day of Climate Action.
