Climate change is a profound threat to the safety and wellbeing of Floridians, our economy, and the environment. Our lawmakers have the opportunity to transform our economy and rethink how we power our homes and new sustainable public transportation systems. Declaring a state of emergency gives the Governor the power to use all resources of the state government to solve this crisis. This would allow the Governor to take comprehensive and immediate action.
Take a moment to lend your voice for our climate. Add your name to this letter from 30 Florida state legislators urging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to declare a “Climate State of Emergency.” Tell the Governor to take immediate action to prevent future catastrophic climate effects on Florida and its people.
Can we count on you to add your name to their letter? We must stand up together and take action because being silent gets us nowhere.
Floridians are counting on the Governor to provide the necessary leadership to set our state on a sustainable path forward. However, after nearly four years in office, his office has failed to offer any policies to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels, the leading cause of climate change. Now, state legislators are telling him it’s time to get serious about our climate. But they need the support of people like you.
