Gov. Rick Scott’s anti-science purge begins: State employee banned for uttering ‘climate change’ A Florida state employee has been reprimanded and told not to come to work after Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) administration banned the use of the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” Earlier this month, reports said that officials in the Scott administration ordered Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administrators not to use the terms in documents or meetings because they asserted that the climate science behind global warming was not a “true fact.” More

Texas has been recapturing it's old reputation lately as the epicenter of right wing-extremism. First there was the bizarre "Jade Helm" conspiracy making its way all the way from the Governor's office to the corridors of Congress, where presidential candidates from the state actually met with the Pentagon to confirm that the government wasn't, in fact, sending in Delta Force "death squads" to kill patriotic Texans under the guise of so-called military exercises.
