You can blame 'Red Tide' Rick (Gov) for ending septic tank inspections and cutting the Environmental Protection budgets.

I do not understand regular people being by opposed to environmental regulations. The corporations will cut costs everywhere they can. They don’t care if they ruin your water or land.

Trump ended EPA clean air regulations that were projected to save 4,500 lives each year.

I can only assume people are dumb enough to believe that "only weak liberals" can die from poisoned air and dirty water. Like voting for Agent Orange gives them some sort of superhuman biology.

The irony is that rural republican voters are going to suffer the most. Agriculture, mining, fracking and coal operations that produce the most amount of runoff and emissions aren’t industries found in blue districts.



Article doesn't mention once the most substantial contributor to the Red Tide problem in FL, sugar cane farms. Cental FL is covered in farms that use aggressive fertilizers that eventually drain into the Okeechobee, which then flows into the ocean. This fertilizer is what fuels the massive algae blooms that cause Red Tide.

Majority of these farms are owned by 7-8 families who are all huge donors to FL politicians (mostly GOP). This has led to a 30% cut in funding for the government organization incharge of regulating the practices of these farmers.

Because they don't believe in science.

If both voter bases would just agree to never vote for science deniers then we wouldn't have this problem. Republican voters f***ing up again.
and again. and again. and again.
Most capitalists don't know that you can't become rich without doing the opposite of Jesus Christ's golden rule. Maybe that's why rich folk don't go to heaven.

Red tide happen in Florida before heavy populations and scientists already determine the red tide bloom start too far off shore to blame on human activity

So anyone blaming Red tide on human activity is the science denier
For those who say I'm a gimmick

They aren't science deniers if they just don't give a f*** about science because they're being paid off.

The main reason why Florida isn't a blue state is felon disenfranchisement.

Statistics (2016)

-10.43% of the Florida population is disenfranchised
-1,686,318 total Floridians are disenfranchised
-Florida has the most disenfranchised citizens in the United States
-Florida has the highest disenfranchisement rate in the United States
-23.3% of black voters in Florida can’t vote because of felony disenfranchisement
