Florida is a paradise of waves, wildlife and sunsets. We must protect our environment for future generations; our economy and jobs depend on a healthy environment. There is too much at stake. It’s no secret that the climate is changing and the tide is rising. Both are real threats to our state. We have an economic and moral obligation to acknowledge these threats and to take action to protect our coastal and riverfront land as well as all of Florida’s resources.
In Congress, Ges will work to ban drilling for oil and seismic testing off Florida’s pristine shores; to fight to keep our beaches clean; and to preserve Florida’s wildlife habitats. He will also work to expand access to renewable energy for communities, businesses, and individuals in order to lessen the impact on our environment. There is simply too much at stake to turn this economic issue into a political football.
