The state government of Florida will now reportedly no longer be obligated to incorporate climate change ideology into the formulation of its energy policy, per legislation enacted by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday.

Additionally, state grant programs that promote energy conservation and renewable energy will be eliminated, and the construction of offshore wind turbines in state waters will be prohibited under the new law, which was enacted by the Florida Legislature in March and will go into effect on July 1.

Legislation also eliminates mandates regarding the procurement of fuel-efficient vehicles and the use of climate-friendly products by state agencies.

Additionally, it safeguards against municipal regulations that impose limitations on the fuel types permissible in appliances, including gas stoves.

According to climate activists, Florida is among the states most susceptible to the perilous and expensive consequences of climate change, a phenomenon allegedly attributed to the combustion of fossil fuels, gas, and coal.
