Red Tide Ron Gets D-Rating from Sierra Club of Florida

Blasts DeSantis’s Anti-Environment, Anti-Freedom Record

ST. PETERSBURG — Sierra Club of Florida is taking Ron DeSantis’s environmental record to task, blasting the Governor for lying about his accomplishments when it comes to protecting the Everglades and Florida beaches and waterways.

Sierra Club is calling DeSantis out for ignoring recommendations from his own Blue-Green Algae Task Force, failing to deliver on Everglades restoration efforts, ignoring the property insurance crisis, and disregarding the effects of climate change.

Crist is the only candidate in this race to release an environmental plan to protect Florida’s water, including fighting red tide, supporting water storage and wetland restoration, protecting Florida’s freshwater springs, and working to restore the Florida Everglades. 

“Red-tide Ron DeSantis failed to do anything while his donors had their way with our environment – and we all pay the price,” said Charlie Crist. “This governor dumps millions of gallons of toxic water into Tampa Bay, causing the worst red tide I’ve ever seen, while ignoring the threat of climate change and failing to prepare our communities for ever-more dangerous storms.
