Florida officials continue to deny a recent Florida Center for Investigative Reporting story (FCIR) indicating there is a ban on referring to “climate change” at state agencies.
But a group has now filed a formal complaint with the governor’s office on behalf of an official saying he was unjustly reprimanded for, among other things, including the words climate change in a summary of a meeting.
Barton Bibler is currently Land Management Plan Coordinator in the Division of State Lands, a unit of Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection. That’s the agency the reported has the de facto ban.
Amazing. It’s difficult to understand how people think they can get away with such ridiculous policy – even limited to a specific agency.
Authoritarians know no bounds, and feel no humility.
