Political Week In Review 6-16-2024


A vehicle is driven through a flooded street in Hallandale Beach, Florida, on Thursday.

Massive flooding in Florida is bringing new attention to the climate change denial of Gov. Ron DeSantis and his Republican allies in the state legislature.

In May, DeSantis took steps to deprioritize climate change resilience, a truly reckless and cruel decision considering the existential crisis climate change poses to the state.

Florida state Sen. Shevrin Jones criticized DeSantis’ climate approach and said the impact of flooding and other climate disasters is felt most by vulnerable communities. 

"Florida refuses to acknowledge 'climate change,' despite streets turning into rivers and @GovRonDeSantis vetoing crucial infrastructure projects in vulnerable communities,"

With much of Florida underwater now, it’s glaringly apparent he had no clue what he was talking about.
