Florida Gov. Rick Scott just signed a bill into law that allows any Florida resident – regardless of whether they have a child in school or not – to object to the curriculum that our kids are being taught.
As a result, so-called "hearing officers" will soon have the power to recommend that subjects such as climate change or other science-based facts be removed from our public school curriculum.
To me, this is the most egregious attack on science yet.
The evidence is clear: Climate change and sea-level rise are real threats to our state – but with President Trump pulling us out of the Paris climate agreement and Gov. Scott banning state employees from even using the term "climate change," it's more important than ever that we continue to unify.
