Gov. Rick Scott has a critical role to play in reducing Florida's carbon emissions, and the EPA's carbon standards present him with a timely and tangible opportunity to make Florida a much-needed leader in climate action, not a laggard.
What do we have to do to change the hatred and evil ways of the Republican Party so that they love something like... their country?
Our world needs leaders who take climate change as seriously as they would a diagnosis of cancer. It sounds dire -- because it is dire. Countries will disappear, poverty will rise, and the health of our children will suffer. We have a moral obligation to address climate change.
When you turn down health care for millions of citizens, billions of dollars and job creation out of spite, you are not representing the best interests of your constituents.
Taylor and Crist must prove that their party switch was a principled, rational move, not an act of political opportunism.

Yes, Christie's presser was a 'tour de force performance' but was it based on implausible deniability? Clinton (Flowers) and Obama (Wright) adeptly skated by their prez campaign woes -- will Christie? Rich and Bob also debate if the Gates book helps/hurts Obama, Clinton, Biden.
The clarion call from Republicans: Fraud! Using fear in promoting selfish and ultimately destructive policies has become the GOP methodology -- the b...
There's nothing better than a Congressional cocaine bust to remind us that politics is back in full swing in the state of Florida! Here is a roundup of this week's winners and losers as we start barreling toward the 2014 campaign season.
The reincarnation of Charlie Crist could have significant implications on the national political scene, particularly as candidates begin to line up for the 2016 race for the White House
