I thought only Florida & Wisconsin were the bad guys. The ne'er-do-well states that this year have forbidden the words "climate change" and "global warning."
My new realization: But wait! There's more!
While Florida is definitely getting the bad rap in the news this year, Wisconsin has followed along--but it hasn't gotten as much media attention as Florida did. (For a humorous, but not fully appropriate video for the kiddos in the room, check out Jon Stewart's very snarky mocking of Florida's banning of the terminology.)
As this infographic shows, Florida & Wisconsin aren't alone:
"Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position." ~Quoted directly from NASA.gov
