Our Governor on the Environment. By Geniusofdespair


Jacksonville reporter Ron Littlepage on Gov. Rick Scott:

It was one of those coffee-spewing moments.

And I’m not referring to State Attorney Angela Corey telling fellow columnist Mark Woods that she is “probably the least political elected official you know.”

An equally outrageous statement came from Gov. Rick Scott, as reported in The Palm Beach Post, who said all of those mega-developments popping up across Florida during his reign are actually good for the environment.

Let’s see:

Our once magnificent springs are polluted with some slowing to only a trickle. A big reason - over development.

Our aquifer, which has been Florida’s lifeblood for centuries, is over tapped. A big reason - over development.

Our wetlands, which help cleanse our water, are disappearing to be replaced by rooftops and asphalt. Yep, over development.

The Indian River Lagoon is a mess. Ditto the Everglades and the beaches and formerly clear ocean waters now muddied by discharges from Lake Okeechobee. Over development yet again.

But Scott says plopping down new cities the size of Orlando in undeveloped areas is good for the environment because they produce tax dollars to help repair the environmental damage that development causes.

How’s that for circular reasoning?
