The decade's most triggering comedy
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed left-wing climate alarmists over the weekend for trying to advance their policy agenda in the wake of Hurricane Idalia.
DeSantis made the remarks during a press conference on Sunday while giving an update on the status of recovery operations in the state.
His remarks come after President Joe Biden visited the state on Saturday and declared that “nobody can deny the impact of climate crises — at least nobody intelligent can deny the impact of the climate crisis anymore.”
DeSantis referenced past storms from well over 100 years ago that had the same path as Hurricane Idalia and hit Florida with similar destructive wind speeds of approximately 125 mph.
“So, I think the notion that somehow hurricanes are something new, that’s just false,” DeSantis said. “And we’ve got to stop politicizing the weather and stop politicizing natural disasters. We know from history there’s been times when it’s very busy in Florida, late ‘40s, early ‘50s, you had a lot of hits of significant hurricanes.”
“So, I think sometimes people need to take a breath and get a little bit of perspective here,” he continued. “But the notion that somehow if we just adopt, you know, very left-wing policies at the federal level that somehow we will not have hurricanes, that is a lie. And that is people trying to take what happened with different types of storms and use that as a pretext to advance their agenda on the backs of people that are suffering. And that’s wrong, and we’re not going to do that in the state of Florida.”
DeSantis slams media narrative using natural disasters to “advance their agenda on the backs of people that are suffering.”
