Florida bans 'global warming,' 'climate change'
« on: March 09, 2015, 12:20:50 am »
Several employees, consultants, and volunteers with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection said that they were directed to not use the terms "climate change," "global warming," and "sustainability" in official communications after Gov. Rick Scott (R) took office in 2011.

Part of the state agency's responsibility is to study climate change. Christopher Byrd, a former attorney with the DEP's Office of General Counsel, said that his superiors shared this new unwritten policy to him after Scott appointed Herschel Vinyard Jr. as the DEP's director. "It's an indication that the political leadership in the state of Florida is not willing to address these issues and face the music when it comes to the challenges that climate change presents," he said.

Another DEP employee, Kristina Trotta, said that during a 2014 staff meeting, her supervisor said to refrain from using the terms "climate change" and "global warming." “We were told that we were not allowed to discuss anything that was not a true fact,” she said. Scott is a vocal skeptic of global warming, saying he is "not convinced” and would need "something more convincing than what I've read."
