Governor Ron DeSantis expressed his doubts about climate change on Friday while visiting areas in South Florida that were severely flooded by storms that dumped up to 20 inches of rain in a single day across the area.

“We don’t want our climate policy driven by climate ideology. When that happens, people pay more and the energy is less reliable,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis signed legislation (HB 1645) in May that removed the term “climate change” from state statutes and placed an emphasis on fossil fuels.

“It wasn’t about saying or not saying climate change. It was a substantive piece of legislation to say that in the state of Florida our energy policy is going to be driven by affordability for Floridians and reliability,” he continued.

“Whatever you choose in that, it isn’t going to prevent us from having tropical weather during tropical season. That’s just baked in the cake,’ he concluded.
