Adam Putnam Continues to Deflect, Refuses to Answer Questions on Climate Change 
 
Donald Trump is expected to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement and as usual, Adam Putnam refuses to take a stand or even make a comment against Trump's actions to destroy environmental protections that are vital to Florida's economy and way of life. When asked about the state's role in lowering carbon dioxide emissions, Adam Putnam deflected the question, ultimately kicking the can down the road by replying "let's see what the federal government does." The federal government is on the brink of leaving an international agreement that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It's time for Adam Putnam to give an answer, worthy of a gubernatorial candidate.
 
"Florida is ground zero for climate change and our state's economy, health and well-being depend on our leaders in Tallahassee and Washington actively combatting climate change. Does Adam Putnam support Trump's decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement, which could lead to global temperatures reaching dangerously high levels and seriously threaten Florida's environment and economy? Or will he continue to deflect questions on fighting climate change and protecting our economy?" said FDP spokesperson Johanna Cervone.
