I feel the same way living in South Florida. I think of all the people this state lures here for tourism and all the harm done to the environment. Trash, not respecting the water ways, stupid developers building huge mansions and condos on beaches, bringing the children here to use fossil fuels on highways to go to theme parks, and water consumption from tourists. Florida is a disaster waiting to happen. Great read. I’m always cognizant of how much damage we are doing to the environment.
