On the Environment: Gillum vs. DeSantis

Why vote AGAINST DeSantis?

DeSantis on the environment:
        He advocates for more research, not tough regulation and direct action to address red tide
        He’s afraid to be a “climate change believer” and an “alarmist”
        He thinks the state can’t help coastal cities and counties protect property from climate change and  sea level rise
        He supports Trump’s “anti-science” and “anti-environment” agenda
        HIS RECORD proves he has zero interest in protecting natural resources:
In Congress, DeSantis voted...
o    AGAINST 29 out of 30 climate change mitigation bills
o    AGAINST 10 out of 11 pro-clean energy bills while in Congress
o    AGAINST 37 out of 39 lands and forest bills
o    AGAINST 11 out of 11 public’s right to know about toxins bills
o    AGAINST 17 out of 18 wildlife conservation bills
o    AGAINST 12 out of 12 ocean conservation bills
o    FOR dirty energy on 39 out of 40 bills
o    FOR 14 out of 15 pro-drilling bills

There is zero reason to trust DeSantis’ promises regarding what he would do if elected governor.  Promises do not an environmentalist make!

Why vote FOR Andrew Gillum?

Gillum on the environment:
        He knows climate change is a real and urgent threat
        He knows science works and supports science-based solutions
        He knows we can’t have clean air or water without regulation   
        He knows preventing pollution is the solution to the toxic algae crisis
        HIS RECORD as Mayor of Tallahassee proves he is an environmentalist:
o    He acted to reduce his city’s carbon emissions by 40%
o    He spearheaded the creation of a 120-acre solar farm that will triple Tallahassee’s solar energy capacity
o    He promoted programs to help city residents lower power bills by making their homes more energy efficient
o    Under his leadership, Tallahassee was named a Green City for protecting its natural resources, and the city's parks and recreation department was selected “Best in America”

You don’t have to count on promises with Gillum and you don’t have to ignore his past record.
