Our planet is being turned into a "piece of filth" by overdevelopment, pollution and human greed, as Pope Francis wrote in his encyclical, Laudato Si.
Here in St. Augustine today, named for the African bishop and scholar, our County leaders continue the trend with their gutless 3-2 vote not to pursue tree protection laws in the face of deforestation by developers, led by developer-Senator TRAVIS JAMES HUTSON.
Thanks to Commissioners Krista Keating Joseph and I. Henry Dean for their environmental stewardship. No thanks at all to developer-Senator TRAVIS HUTSON's three unjust stewards, former DeSANTIS Congressional staffer ROY ALAIMO, Jr., whom DeSANTIS appointed to a vacant County Commission seat, and the dupery duo of CHRISTIAN WHITEHURST and SARAH ARNOLD.
From Pew Research Center:
Pope Francis has frequently spoken about climate change during his decade-long leadership of the Roman Catholic Church. In 2015, he devoted an entire encyclical to the matter, citing scientific consensus that the Earth is warming due to human activity. And next week, he is expected to release a new document that he said will “address current problems” related to climate issues.
