“Climate Change” Gag Order Claims First Victim


“[Florida PEER Director Jerry] Philips is also asking for the agency to explain on what basis they are banning the use of the terms “climate change,” “sustainability,” and “sea-level rise.” He also contends the orders to censor meeting summaries is a violation of Florida law forbidding alteration of official records.
