The Unspeakable Truth in Florida

In the U.S., Florida is uniquely vulnerable to global warming, er… climate change, er… sea level rise, er… I mean ‘nuisance flooding.’

The agency responsible for setting and enforcing conservation guidelines for the state of Florida, the Department of Environmental Protection, reportedly issued directives banning other state workers from using terms related to climate change or global warming in reports. RT’s Nicholas O’Donovan has more from the RT studio in Miami.

    Probably on so heavily politicized a subject, the less said by officials, the better but for pronouncements pertinent to current needs. However, it seems curious that one state department claims authority to censor the legitimate information output of others.

    Further indication of politicization, I suppose.

    How can this directive possibly be legal?

      Apparently, the directive was unwritten.

        How convenient! If some brave employees refuse to follow this absurd directive, the state might be forced to defend it in a court of law where – regardless of the outcome – greater scrutiny would exist. Sooner or later, ordinary people must take a stand against this corporatist authoritarianism even if it means losing their job or making other such sacrifices. Enough is enough!
