FL Gov Rick Scott orders employee to get psych evaluation for using the term "climate change."

Perhaps you've been following all of the insane tornado of coverage about Gov. Rick Scott'sclimate-change denial, or maybe you're just too busy drowning in Miami. The gist is that Scott has told various employees of various state agencies that "climate change" is not a thing, nor is "sustainability," nor is "sea-level rise," though "climate variability" might be, he guesses. Of course he's no scientist, as he's admitted to nobody's surprise. He's just a simple businessman with the largest Medicare fraud case on record.  

While it seemed that at first the administration was interested in some damage control, the damage only continues to get worse. A report from yesterday's Palm Beach Post describes the depth of this conservative paranoia machine. Things have gone from Bloggytown to Crazytown. Scott reportedly ordered longtime employee of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to take time off and seek professional mental treatment for using the term "climate change" in reference to the failed Keystone XL Pipeline project, according to the group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. 

"The complaint says that on March 9, Barton Bibler, a longtime worker for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, got a letter of reprimand, was ordered to take two days leave and then was told not to return until he had medical clearance of his fitness for duty," thePost reports. 

What the fuck?

PEER responded to Scott's actions thusly, says the Post: 

“If anyone needs mental health screening it is Governor Rick Scott and other officials telling state workers to pretend that climate change and sea-level rise do not exist.”

    @Dave,,,You are absolutely correct...and yet..well my Father set me up with his girlfriend when I was like 15, I enjoyed it (sort of) but I gotta wonder what that experience did to my psychology at that young age...I still don't know how it may have effected me...and I can't very well take it back now can I?

    Complete nonsense, more likely furthers the judges career. Nope, this was no tragedy, it was likely was a good educational experience for the boy who is one step closer to being a man now.

  8. Teachers going the extra mile so students can gain confidence when they leave high school and begin to build romantic relationships should not be a crime. Is what this teacher did any worse than school cops beating the schit out of kids or tazing them or vaccinating them for genital warts without parental consent?
