Hurricane Michael Pummels Communities in Florida, a State Led by a Climate Change-Denying Governor

At least two people have died since Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida and Georgia on Wednesday. It is the third most powerful storm to ever hit the U.S. mainland, and meteorologists say it is supercharged by warmer than usual water in the Gulf of Mexico. But Florida Governor Rick Scott has a long history of denying climate change. In 2011, his administration reportedly banned state employees in Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection from using the terms “climate change,” “global warming” and “sea-level rise.” DN! speaks with Gloria Horning, a social and environmental justice advocate. She serves on the Environmental Advisory Board for Pensacola, Florida.
