If you live in Florida, you might want to pack your bags. According to the Daily Kos the Earth's ice caps will melt by the end of the century and Floridians will find themselves underwater. Of course, due to the recent real estate collapse in the state, most Floridians are already underwater, so what else is new?
Yup, it seems America's best known political hermaphrodite is best equipped to literally keep Floridians' heads above water. How? According to the article...
When Charlie Crist had been in the Florida governor's mansion for only one year, he heldI'm convinced. If anything can stop Mother Earth from melting her ice caps and flooding Florida out of existence, it's a "Florida Governor's Action Team on Energy and Climate Change!"
a two-day climate summit that he wrapped up by signing three sweeping eco-executive orders.
His plans include adopting California’s strict vehicle-emissions law, making Florida the first Southeast state to go that route; calling for a 40 percent reduction in statewide greenhouse-gas emissions by 2025; and requiring state agencies to prioritize fuel efficiency when buying or renting vehicles and to hold events in facilities certified as green by the state Department of Environmental Protection. Crist is also asking state utilities to produce 20 percent of their power from renewables, and creating a Florida Governor’s Action Team on Energy and Climate Change.
Good grief! No wonder the irreverent among us call them leftards!
