    After your endorsement of DiSantis, I cannot imagine ever supporting you again. I am deeply disgusted by this action.

    Ok, DeSantis won – now what? The endorsements by the Trust and BullSugar could have made the difference. How will you leverage that and hold him accountable?

    As an admirer and supporter, I am shocked and dismayed to see that you have endorsed Ron DeSantis for Governor. Shame on you for supporting someone who has not ever previously done anything to help stop agricultural pollution of Lake Okeechobee or to re-establish natural southward flow of water from Lake Okeechobee into the Everglades. I get the feeling that there is something underhanded taking place here.

    Your recommendations for public office leaves a lot to be desired and I think it will turn a lot of your supporters away. Any supporter for the slash, burn and drill Republican agenda is not going to have my support. A Monsanto executive for the US Fish and Game and a coal lobbyist to head the EPA does not bode well for the future of our environment.

    I just read a Carl Hiassaan ..excuse spelling..that claims you are endorsing Mr Di Santis for governor.

    How can you do so and still claim to care about the Everglades and the environment in general after he consistantly votes to eviscerate every environmental law and program that comes before him. His sudden conversion to environmentalist has not fooled me and I would think you would feel the same.

    Please explain this to me.

    Thank you

    Seriously?!?!?! Ron DeSanis doesn’t believe in science and voted against the environment 162 times while in Congress. You’re suppose to be helping the environment. I have upported you until now. I’m losing all hope.

    Your endorsement of DeSantis for governor has exposed your organization as one I could never again support. DeSantis is not a good choice for a governor, and does NOT have a record nor intention of cleaning up and protecting our environment. I am very disappointed in the Everglades Trust and I no longer wish to be a member.

    Everglades Trust – what is your agenda? DeSantis votes 98% of the time AGAINST Environmental Protections. Why would you endorse him over Mayor Gillum that has a much better tract environmental record. Plus DeSantis is a true Trump devotee that will wreck our environment if elected. This organization has lost all credibility.

    As a member of the Sierra Club and other Environmental organizations I NEED AN EXPLANATION OF WHY YOU HAVE ENDORSED DESANTIS? Due to this decision your organization has Lost All Credibility. Didn’t you do your homework, DeSantis has voted AGAINST 161 Environmental bills.

    Your stupidity is outstanding considering due to Republican Rick Scott & his Republican legislature has destroyed this state. Florida’s Environmental collapse is Directly due to Political motivation for the usual reasons SAVING MONEY for Corporations who POLLUTE no one has enforced laws or & polluters are pretty much allowed to do whatever they want as long as they donate to these the expense of the state & the people who live here. The 1% have not changed, they are out for themselves, they do not see government as an institution to defend and promote the rights and needs of citizens. They see it as an impediment to unrestricted exploitation and profit. Unspoiled land and water to the 1%, are commodities they will use to increase wealth and then discarded. This is how they are wired. The 1% do not propose structural change, they do not want businesses and the marketplace regulated. They seek, rather, a mechanism to exploit America and will continue to transform us into a deindustrialized wasteland so they can continue to feed upon us like swarms of long nose lancet fish, which devour others of their own species. One day when it’s too late, people will understand how politics work. Follow the money.

    I’m demanding an explanation until then your organization is non existent… Yes you endorsed Gillum but the damage is done and so is your credibility.

    How much did they pay you?

    Shame on the Trust! Supporting Desantis is a slap in the face to the environment you claim to be fighting for! Desantis is just Rick Scott cloned. Who paid off the trust? Desantis has an appalling record on the environment. It’s obvious to everyone that money talks and the Everglades is just your tool to line your pockets. You have lost my support and the support of many more!

    Actually, DeSantis is taking money from big sugar. From TC Palm, September 14, 2018:

    “Jobs for Florida, a PAC affiliated with the Florida Chamber of Commerce, gave DeSantis’ PAC $100,000 at the end of last month. U.S. Sugar Corp. of Clewiston and Florida Crystals of West Palm Beach have contributed more than $280,000 to Jobs for Florida since 2013. “

    I can’t believe you’d endorse DeSantis when his track record for the environment is 3%. How could you people be so STUPID! The man denies climate change and has no platform for cleaning up the environment. Would you please explain your reasoning for this?

    Very disappointed in your Governor endorsement. The voting record of DeSantis and what you say you stand for are misaligned! I do not vote on endorsements and will certainly find non political sponsored environmental groups to support over yours! Wow, just wow! Someone must have paid your group a lot of money for this one-

    You have endorsed Ron DeSantis for Governor? REALLY? You must have based his “champion of the Everglades” position solely on the fact he hasn’t taken any Big Sugar money – yet. You certainly didn’t base it on any actual environmental bona fides. The League of Conservation Voters gives him a lifetime score of 2%. That is simple fact. Based on actual data. And just about as low as you can go. You’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    This is great content. My background is in Chemical Engineering. I think there are some other industries at play that affect the ecosystem. Please look into Mosaic, a company that mines for phosphate in Florida. I believe the mined phosphate may be getting into the water supplies. Phosphate is a food source for algae. Also, the mining destroys those areas and is a nonrenewable resource.

    Do Ya’ll know about this?

    One terrifying theory as to what’s really is happening in Florida.

    Posted by Erin Elizabeth | Aug 28, 2018

    One terrifying theory as to what’s really is happening in Florida.

    (Editor’s Note: This story was taken from David Letellier’s public Facebook page and has been cited below, his Facebook page is also linked below.)

    “My sister and I were both raised in South Florida and we love our State. We have come up with a hypothetical theory that creates a perfect storm for this recent ecological disaster… Florida is going to be used to create future oil fields right under our feet. Deep injection wells are already pumping untreated sewage and Ag waste water 3,000 feet below our fresh water aquifer into the bedrock for making biofuels/alcohol, that they can pump out of the ground at a later date use to make gasoline, diesel fuel and natural gas to sell on the world markets.

    To make alcohol you need lots of water, a mash or organic material (human sewage, Ag waste, even dead sea animals), sugar which is grown right at Ground Zero and the starter or (yeast) which is the Cyanobacteria or (blue/green algae) made by Argenol in Ft. Myers. They want to start processing and pumping the Cyanobacteria into the ground at the north of Lake Okeechobee where they can hold it in the bedrock. It will be just like brewing a huge batch of whiskey/alcohol but in just a fraction of the time that the Earth needs to make oil.

    The north end of Lake O is where we believe they had their first major spill of this super- algae Cyanobacteria. The State of Florida was in the process of drilling 50 deep injection wells to contain it but they somehow lost control of it and had to dump and pump this toxic crap into the rivers on the top of the lake to the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico simply to get rid of it. The starter stew they created from the Cyanobacteria was so toxic that it killed every fish, turtle, bird, dolphin and manatee that came into contact with it. They’ve been using the annual Red Tide event as a cover to blame this hazardous spill on a (naturally occurring event). It all adds up to a big money involvement and I’m sure anyone (politicians included) connected with it are keeping it super secret which also explains the news blackout.

    The Mosaic sinkhole which happened in May, 2017 was filled with grout to seal it up but where did those 215 million of gallons of toxic stew go? I believe this toxic water has had a chance to migrate underground through the aquifer and come up at the heads of the Peace and Myakka rivers which also ends up flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.

    If you follow the money and the stench, it should lead to the answers explaining everything. Remember to vote tomorrow (Tuesday, August 28th) for environmentally friendly political candidates.”

    I’m saddened and surprised to see Andrew Gillum is not on your list. Your recommendation

    should not be based on ‘water’ along. I have fought for Everglades restoration and preservation for 30 years. I was a volunteer driver for Margory Stoneman Douglas whenever

    she was going to NPR in Miami. And now, I am fighting for Andrew Gillum. And I am

    equally saddened that Philip Levine is on your list. I wish you had been a resident

    of Miami Beach when he was Mayor.
