FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a series of steps to defend Florida against rising sea levels Tuesday, even as he denounced the use of the term “global warming” as a “pretext to do a bunch of left-wing things”, says Climate Depot.

The governor submitted 76 projects to the state Legislature to improve drainage, raise sea walls and take other steps to fight flooding across the state.

The state would spend about $270 million, with local matches typically required.

“We’re a low-lying state, we’re a storm-prone state, and we’re a flood-prone state,” DeSantis said at a news conference in Oldsmar, just outside Tampa.

At his news conference, the governor avoided terms like sea-level rise or climate change…Asked by a reporter about global warming, the governor said, “What I’ve found is when people start talking about things like global warming they typically use that as a pretext to do a bunch of left-wing things that they would want to do anyways. And so we’re not doing any left-wing stuff.” …

“I just think that’s the right thing to do regardless. But be very careful of people trying to smuggle in their ideology; they say support our coastline or they say they support our water or our environment. And maybe they do, but they’re also trying to do a lot of other things.”
. . .
Climate Depot’s Morano comment: “Gov. DeSantis gets it. Extreme weather and flooding have occurred since time immemorial. Sea levels have been rising for thousands of years since the last ice age ended. Any prudent government should prepare for bad weather regardless of your views on man-made climate change. Kudos to Gov. DeSantis for not falling into the virtue signally trap of trying to limit energy production or impose carbon taxes or other climate meaningless activities!”
