Today’s Connecting the Dots #CTD- Climate Change

A recent report was released revealing an unwritten ban keeping Department of Environmental Protection employees from using certain terms such as “climate change”, “sustainability” and “global warming”. This was taking place under the watch of Florida’s Governor Rick Scott. Republican leadership denying human impact on climate change leave citizens extremely vulnerable against future natural disasters. For example, high risk areas such as the Florida coastline will suffer severe flood damages during #SeaLevelRise if the public is not educated about climate change.
