Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) barred state officials from using the term “climate change.” making Florida the butt of countless jokes. But the joke is on all of us: There's now a trillion-dollar real-estate bubble in coastal property. When it bursts, U.S. taxpayers -- all of us -- will have to pay.
"It's going to be more difficult if Scott is re-elected," said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Florida-based Solar Energy Management. "The utilities know and that's why they're giving so much money to to Scott."
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday joined the growing ranks of politicians and political figures who actively oppose any policy to fight climate change, but also claim to not know the science of climate change.
