DeSantis Unveils $1 Billion, 4-year Plan to Address Rising Sea Levels
From The Center Square
“Gov. Ron DeSantis’ $96.6 billion fiscal year 2022 budget request includes $25 million to seed $1 billion in bonds over the next four years as part of a newly created Resilient Florida program... 

‘Bonding makes common sense for things like investments in resilience and land conservation where future prices are likely to be radically higher than they are today,’ Audubon Florida Executive Director Julie Wraithmell said. ‘Locking in today’s costs, even with debt-service payments, ends up being a better deal for taxpayers in the long run on investments that in the future will be radically more expensive or no longer available.’”
New Research Shows Blueprint for Reaching Affordable Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050
From Daily Energy Insider

“A new analysis created by researchers at the United States Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the University of San Francisco (USF), and the consulting firm Evolved Energy Research contends that carbon neutral is not only feasible but affordable, by 2050. If the United States were to begin today, it could do it at a net cost of about $1 per person per day, but it would require rebuilding U.S. energy infrastructure.”
Bills Filed Reflect New Priority on Renewable Energy
From Audubon Florida

“This legislative session we have seen several bills filed in both chambers that tackle renewable energy and energy efficiency legislation. While not all will gain traction, it is encouraging to see an increasing priority placed on addressing climate change.”
How Climate Change May Affect Your Health
From The New York Times

“Melting ice caps, warmer oceans, intense storms, heat waves, droughts, floods and wildfires — all these well-documented effects of climate change may seem too remote to many people to prompt them to adopt behaviors that can slow the warming of the planet. Unless your neighborhood was destroyed by a severe hurricane or raging wildfire, you might think such disasters happen only to other people. But what if I told you that no matter where you live or how high your socioeconomic status, climate change can endanger your health, both physical and mental, now and in the future?”
