Florida’s Concept Of Nature

R0300430smallI will be the first to admit that Florida has some beautiful places but, when the real estate developers get their hands on them and turn the bulldozers loose, what’s left seems almost a parody. Gaudy fountains and concrete enclosed palms set against country club pastels  rule the day. 

 

Trees vs The Push For Profit

Here in Florida, commerce would seem to top the environment  almost every time. Swamps get drained and acres bulldozed, as “king sugar” and rapacious real estate development continue to destroy what little is left of the natural world. As one who likes to see places where man hasn’t messed up, this place can be very depressing.
