While the major presidential candidates agree global warming is real, the Republicans are sharply divided over what to do about it, even as they chase votes in Florida, where the predicted risk of rising sea waters and more severe storms is anything but a passing concern.

The global warming issue didn't bubble to the top as an issue in either Iowa or New Hampshire.

But that may not be the case in Florida, with its 1,200 miles of coastline, history of severe storms and unique sea coral. All would be affected by the type of warming scientists predict.

The director of an advocacy group, Florida Climate Change Project at Environmental Defense, says any candidate that wants to credibly campaign in Florida needs to get specific about solutions for global warming.
