Let’s “Cover Up” Our Heads in The Florida Sand

Monday, March 9th, 2015

In a report published in yesterdays (Sundays) Miami Herald Newspaper, reporter Tristam Korten revealed that, on orders from governor Scott and his ilk, state officials are not permitted to use the terms “global warming” or “climate change’ in environmental reports or talks.  The term “sea-level rise” was also replaced with the term “nuisance flooding.” Scott is a climate-change denialist. During his first campaign for governor in 2010, Scott told reporters who asked about his views on climate change that he had “not been convinced,” and that he would need “something more convincing than what I’ve read.” We should all be concerned with this “cover up” since climate change would and should be part of the 2016 revised Florida Science Standards. Along with his denial of evolution,the state’s governor is no supporter of real science.
