Tell Governor Rick Scott to support President Obama's climate action plan

Background
As the cornerstone of President’s Climate Action Plan, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday will issue a proposal to curb dangerous carbon pollution -- the source of record heat, superstorms and sea level rise -- from existing power plants for the first time ever. 

The new protections will also help reduce other life-threatening air pollution including mercury, soot, and smog and spur investments in clean energy-- like solar power and energy efficiency.

Governor Rick Scott could stand in the way of this important protection against unchecked carbon pollution. If we don’t make sure the Governor hears from us, we may end up with a state plan that doesn’t do enough to protect us and our future. 

Take Action!
Call Governor Rick Scott’s office at (850) 488-7146 and say:
I am a concerned Floridian who wants Governor Scott to stand up to big polluters and protect our families from industrial carbon pollution. I would like the Governor to support strong and just EPA safeguards against carbon pollution!

Hey Scott.....not everyone in this state is unconscious enough to be a Republican.....you do realize that .....right???

Apparently Shrink#2 is unaware that the National Park System was started by President Theodore Roosevelt, a REPUBLICAN. Partisan politics will get people nowhere. Name-calling is childish. Getting together as a non-partisan group sends a clear message.

I am sure you might be smarter than Marco Rubio who does not believe in climate change while 300 scientists see it differently. Show us you might have a brain. Do something right for Fla ,

Please humor the scientific majority and address climate change, solar/wind power and just say NO to drilling. Let's get to work preserving and building infrastructure!!

Even the FDOT believes in climate change.....

Rick Scott ignores these requests. I have emailed him several times with the same question and he has never responded once. Scott only cares about JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! He cares nothing for the environment, the animals, the people (unless they can fill job positions). He doesn't care about the elderly, the inform, the disabled; and yet he governs a state that is full of people who are elderly, sick, or disabled. What does that tell you?

Rick scott never has cared for the environment, always for himself and big money which is why we need to get him out. Vote Charlie christ who has proven in the past he cares about the Florida Environment

How come the climate was a lot hotter during the Middle Ages when there were no carbon emissions? The climate will warm and cool regardless. Let's worry more about pollution and keeping our earth clean. And by the way, there are just as many scientists who do not believe in man-made climate change as those who do. Finally in case you did not see it, Greenpeace believes we are heading for a climate cooling trend. I think we should worry more about the invasion going on at the Southern Border and the fact that the world is in chaos.
