Everything is awesome

Environmental innovation: When you leave as Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, agency staff writes a 26-page booklet explaining just how awesome you were. You get to introduce the booklet by affirming “tremendous strides over the previous four years in protecting the environment.

There is lots of proof too: Environmental resource permits are issued in half the time of four years ago. (p. 2) Water use permitting was also “streamlined.” (p. 4)  The booklet even notes “Success Beyond the Secretary’s Three Priorities.” (p. 15) In sum,

As this report shows, progress on all three of the Secretary’s priorities is notable. (p. 15)

The years 2011-2014 have been an era of positive change in every facet of the agency’s operations and mission. (p. 19)

Positive changes everywhere. So many, in fact, that there was no room to mention  “climate change” or “global warming.”
