From the Panhandle to the Keys, Florida’s coast is crucial to our economy and to Floridians’ way of life. Jeff Greene strongly opposes the expansion of drilling off Florida’s coast that was originally proposed by the Trump administration. Jeff will support funding to protect our beaches and shores so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come.
With toxic algae threatening our waterways, with the now-annual bloom already blanketing 90% of Lake Okeechobee. Jeff will address this crisis immediately by funding CERP, addressing runoff from farming, septic leakage and lawn fertilizing, and prioritizing our environment over special interests, before it’s too late.
Jeff knows global warming is affecting Florida. As a resident of Palm Beach County, he experiences it himself firsthand. Rising sea levels are already bad. And they’re only going to get worse, unless we can come up with a solution…fast.
Through his efforts with The Greene Institute, Jeff will call upon leading experts from around the world to come up with an innovative and sustainable solution for Florida. The Institute’s Managing the Disruption conference brings together the finest minds in academia, business, and government.
Jeff believes Trump’s decision to drop out of the Paris Climate Accord was a terrible mistake that threatens the long-term health of the planet. But that won’t stop Jeff from taking action for Florida.
As governor, Jeff will also work to protect the Everglades and prevent Big Sugar from ruining this natural treasure. He will protect environmentally sensitive lands and mitigate saltwater intrusion that threatens sources of fresh water for millions of Floridians.
