Florida Bans Climate Change

Florida Bans Climate Change

I meant to post this the other day, but I forgot, or I couldn’t make myself because of the astounding stupidity involved.  Florida officials, once Rick Scott came into power, were told to not include the terms “climate change” and “global warming” in any official reports.  If this wasn’t so insane and depressing, this would actually be hilarious.  Florida is a state that is going to be in an especially dire situation due to climate change related problems.  Here is just one article about one part of Florida that is going to face catastrophe due to climate change:

  1. Thanks Jeff, When Katy McGinnty took over Pa DEP, she told me not to talk about climate change, She wanted to talk about green energy. It has also widely been reported that Governor Corbett told state empolyees not to talk about climate change. As you can see I feel well enough today to begin to do email. Tomorrow I hope to get back to my book.
