.@FLGovScott: You’ve crossed the line. It’s time to resign.


In Florida, officials ban term climate change | Miami Herald Miami Herald

The state of Florida is the region most susceptible to the effects of global warming in this country, according to scientists. Sea-level rise alone threatens 30 percent of the state’s beaches over the next 85 years.

But you would not know that by talking to officials at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the state agency on the front lines of studying and planning for these changes.

DEP officials have been ordered not to use the term “climate change” or “global warming” in any official communications, emails, or reports, according to former DEP employees, consultants, volunteers and records obtained by the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting.

Rick Scott finally met with some climate scientists … very briefly (video below). Scott posed no significant questions and offered no informative comments. Behind the scenes, he was already pulling strings to gag public employees tasked with addressing environmental concerns.

Gagging public employees is standard fare for Scott; corrections investigators are not allowed to talk about the stalled state of investigating a terrifying number of inmate deaths by corrections officers’ neglect or violence.

Gags are for dictators, not  governors. Scott has to resign.

  1. Gag orders… equally pathetic and amazing considering the magnitude of climate change threat to Miami. But then, maybe I’m just confused. And, and… maybe Rick Scott really has hair.
