As the southern portion of the United States suffers from near record amounts of flooding and severe storm activity, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took time out of his busy schedule on Wednesday, April 30 to address the concerns of residents of the Florida Panhandle who have suffered massive flooding since early Tuesday. His remarks came during a press conference about a much more sensitive, though no less troubling issue; the crisis in Ukraine.

“Just briefly, a moment of personal privilege. I just want to extend our thoughts and prayers for those in Northwest Florida, particularly in Pensacola, overnight had a massive amount of flooding, some loss of life,” said Rubio. “We’ve been in contact with the Governor’s office, also reached out with Senator Nelson. We’re watching very closely what’s happening there. Our thoughts and our prayers are with them.”

Though the debate over global warming is a contentious one at best, no one can argue that the frequency and severity of these weather phenomena seem to be on the rise. Perhaps it is time to take a good, solid look at what we are doing to our planet, and see if there is anything we can do to make it a better place to live; while we still have time.
