    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Of course, this is being turned into a Republican talking point, to be used as a bludgeon against Crist in his upcoming Senate race against tea party hack Marco Rubio. What else is new. But I don't think it will work, the people of Florida know what is in their best interest and Crist really is looking out for the state here.
    Yes lets do away with even more jobs! Great idea!

    I'm dreading when it reaches Panama City, Destin, and Cape San Blas...some of the most beautiful sugar sand beaches on earth, and still wild and lovely.

    We tried to buy some oysters this weekend, and apparently, they're cleaning out Appalachicola bay in advance of the oil since it will be closed soon. They're shipping all the Appalachicola oysters to NOLA, because they have a huge demand and are having difficulty finding them now, so they're paying a premium. Bastards.
    damn. just damn.

    I'd rather be employed and rich with tourist dollars. I'm not so myopic as to think drilling is going to contribute more to Florida's economy than it's going to take away. I'm just smart enough not to bite the hand that feeds me. You can call it left wing if you want, I just call it common sense.

    It's interesting how the actual Floridians on this thread seem to approve of this move by Crist, but the people who have no idea of what matters to us in Florida (i.e., we know what side our bread is buttered on...tourism is what makes our economy tick) are up in arms.

    I'll tell ya what...you outsiders worry about your states, and let us worry about ours.

    States rights, ftw.
