It looks like @ScienceMagazine has made this special issue free to access online! 🙏 This was the topic of this week's Black Climate Agenda discussion on Land in the Red, Black, and Green New Deal. I look forward to reading it in full.#RBGNDD@Mvmnt4BlkLivess@CPichonBattleetwitter.com/dwallacewells/…X

Note: This was 1 of dozens of posts in NYT Metro's team live-blog of the debate. I didn't catch Yang saying "too expensive to be poor" before Adams. Last nite after seeing readers note it, I tweaked to: "Adams says, *echoing Yang*, in perhaps the truest *statements*..so far." Thx twitter.com/JeffCMays/stat…
If not for @katie_honan, we wouldn’t have known the wild backstory behind the mayor’s firing-not-firing of his OEM commissioner, the personal stories of the city’s deadliest day from Covid and problems at a city-contracted homeless shelter that led to council oversight. twitter.com/sallygold/stat…

One of my favorite Newlines stories (not that I have favorites ofc). Tragic, moving, haunting. Syria’s Alawites chose to stick by Assad, and survived. But a decade later their persecutors and victims still torment them. A personal essay for @newlinesmag newlinesmag.com/first-person/t…

On another issue, this was a depressing moment in the debate. Says less about the specific candidates than about what ails our society. twitter.com/danarubinstein…
This is the animating question behind so many NYC/NY state climate/enviro battles: The North Brooklyn pipeline. Public power. How to upgrade the dirtiest plants (the "peakers" that run when extra capacity is needed). How fast to expand the bldg retrofit requirements. Etc.
No clear q on a pivotal debate: Must we stop all new gas infrastructure NOW to avert climate disaster & can we & still have enough power? Gas=better than other fossil fuels, but are new projects a needed bridge or a waste of time/$ that will just be stranded assets?
Should gas heating & cooking be banned in new construction? Several said a ban should phase in. But a bill is before City Council right now w/a 2yr ramp-up. Wish they'd been asked clearly for a thumbs up/down on that bill.
All but @AndrewYang say citywide composting should be mandated. All say that buildings should be retrofitted to reduce planet-warming emissions - but landlords may need help financing (A city law from 2019 starts this process with the largest buildings).
But yes, even given the poorly worded q's, it did seem the candidates they weren't all familiar with the underlying existing climate/enviro policies and/or proposals that were being referenced. twitter.com/AlexCKaufman/s…
Big missed climate oppo: Confusing/imprecise rapid-fire q's made it hard for candidates to answer Y/N. Obscured stances on key issues: Retrofitting buildings (NYC's biggest source of GHGs & some pollutants). Mandatory composting. Converting from gas to electric heating & cooking.

People have been complaining about loud music and skateboarders in Washington Square Park for literally 50 years. I once went to the NYC Archives and unearthed letters about it. twitter.com/jangelooff/sta…

On our live analysis, @AshleyAtTimes sums it up: "The candidates are talking about integrating schools 67 years after the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Brown v. Board declaring educational segregation unconstitutional." nytimes.com/live/2021/06/1…
Yes, why are the candidates asked to choose between school integration & school improvement? Most educators/education researchers believe these are inseparable. twitter.com/elizashapiro/s…
Odd question for the candidates: would they prioritize integrating schools or improving schools? Of course, we know that integration can be a school improvement plan. City has struggled mightily to improve its schools at scale for the last 60 years without integration.

“It is expensive to be poor” in New York City, Eric Adams says, in perhaps the truest statement of the evening so far, writes @ABarnardNYT on our mayoral debate live blog: nytimes.com/live/2021/06/1…

Climate change is here, says @ShaunDonovanNYC, and this "New New Deal moment" is the time to tackle climate change as part of economic recovery. Wind power and renewable energy alone can bring 30K jobs to New Yorkers, he says.
Climate, transportation & infrastructure issues, an interlocking set of problems, are the biggest issues that the city has not figured out how to solve, says @Dianne4NYC, who has emphasized climate change and the need to address it with ground-up community input.
