On December 15, 2021, the city of New York adopted a climate-change policy that will not approve future construction project plans where fossil fuels would be used for heating, electricity and cooking. This new policy will be enforced for all new construction except for hospitals and commercial kitchens starting in 2027. Why the ban? The city calculated that 40% of its carbon and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from heating and hot water demand throughout the city. What makes New York City's announcement unique is that it is the first cold-climate city to adopt such a ban and that is also the largest city in the United States.
