DeSantis brings sanity to Green Legislation in Florida

Florida fought back against the Climate Coalition with new laws and a series of related moves that will make it much more difficult to green Florida.

Here’s the Governor’s usual recap bulletin, issued this week:

Under the new laws, Florida’s state government need no longer: consider “climate change” when crafting energy policy, use climate-friendly products, or buy fuel-efficient vehicles. The laws banned offshore wind turbines and repealed state grant programs for “energy conservation” and “renewable energy.” It outlawed municipalities from restricting the types of fuel that citizens can use in our appliances, like natural gas stoves.

Once again — just like during the pandemic! — loopy leftwing opponents screeched maniacally that DeSantis is literally killing people. Brooke Alexander-Goss, a hyphenated Sierra Club official, said that Mr. DeSantis had “failed” Floridians by signing the bill, because “Allowing this bill to become law jeopardizes the health and safety of all Floridians, and we will certainly see increases in climate-related disasters and deaths.”

My goodness. That sounds bad, maybe as bad as the Governor’s idea to re-open the beaches. The bills also cracked down on Chinese influence in Florida, although nobody seems too bothered about those rules, what with Biden’s new anti-China crusade.
