Obama Stresses Climate Agenda With New $1 Billion Fund Proposal

Politico: “President Barack Obama will ask Congress to set up a $1 billion “Climate Resilience Fund” in his proposed budget next month.”

“The fund would go to research on the projected impacts of climate change, help communities prepare for climate change’s effects and fund ‘breakthrough technologies and resilient infrastructure.’”

“The administration’s new push to address the drought comes a week after the Agriculture Department announced it would set up a series of ‘climate hubs’ across the U.S. to study climate change’s impacts on agriculture and rural activities and develop mitigation and adaptation measures.”
