The Environmental Lobby and “The Boy Who Cried ‘Wolf'”

So when do you stop paying attention to people who predicting the world would end 10 years ago? Republican legislators stiff-arm anti-Trump environmental lobby in Tallahassee.

And the Left are turning (have turned?) the courts into a weapon.

Florida’s Everglades Coalition is in Tallahassee to lobby legislators on what they want to do about problems in the Everglades. Republicans are ignoring them. Maybe because of some fringe elements involved.

The Everglades Coalition also includes the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), the national group that has received money from billionaire George Soros’ Tides Foundation and has sued President Donald Trump 179 times since he took office, will also be in attendance. [SNIP]

“The abuse of the court system for political ends is nothing new for the radical left,” said [Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R)] “Although this level of court abuse may be a new low for the Never Trump fringe.”

The article linked above doesn’t say much about the goals of The Everglades Coalition, but the Left has been fighting with South Florida Water Management District (SWFMD or Swift Mud) since forever, about the amount of water sent to the everglades from the canal system that includes Lake Okeechobee. The real threat to the Everglades, and most of Florida wildlife right now, are invasive species. In The Everglades, it is Anacondas. (The large snakes.) They are killing off large numbers of native species and seem to be thriving. And of course SFWMD Emptied Lake Okeechobee one year because “a large number of hurricanes were anticipated due to global warming” (it was before that moniker was dropped in favor of “climate change”) and those storms never materialized. So there was no water for The Everglades or the canals, even a couple of towns around the lake that rely on tourism were literally left high and dry, and had their economies decimated. But hey, they were all in on global warming so it must have been the right thing to do.

Anyway, despite a booming economy providing a lot of funds for The Everglades in general, this group is not happy. Has the Left ever said, “Hey, that was a job well done?” Or do they never win? (Aside from the anti-war protestors going into hibernation for 8 years when Obama was in office. I’m not sure that’s a fair example.)
