With Florida being surrounded on three sides by the seas, our pretend governor still doesn't get it about climate change.
Maybe he's not all that worried about Florida because of his purchase in Montana.
Yes, I know Rick Scott keeps saying he's not a scientist to every reporter who asks him about his opinion on climate change but his actions speak louder than words with the cutting of funding to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Agency and his orders not to mention climate change or any negative impacts caused by it in reports.
This seems to be the standard conservative response to climate change: "Ignore it, maybe it will go away" attitude.

But judging from how Amendment 1 to booster the conservation program of Florida is being handled shows our governor is not alone in that attitude.
Even though 75 percent of voters passed it, our so-called elected representatives already had other plans for it. Maybe the 75 percent should start contacting them and demand that the money be used as voted on.
No matter how much money a politician raises for his re-election, if he doesn't get the votes he don't win.
The seas are rising in South Florida but the inaction and silence is mind boggling from Tallahassee. Voters, it's your home; "take it back."
