From the land of the hanging chad comes a troubling tale of politics trampling science and free speech in one blow. It seems the administration of Governor Rick Scott ordered employees of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to avoid using the terms “climate change” or “global warming” in “… official communications, e-mails, or reports.” It would seem that “science”, “reality”, “integrity” and “freedom” should also be on the list of banned subjects.
