President’s Climate Action Plan Released

On June 25th, President Obama announced the release of the President’s Climate Action Plan.  The Plan consists of a wide variety of executive actions focused around three pillars: cut carbon pollution in the United States; prepare the United States for the impacts of climate change; and, lead international efforts to combat global climate change and prepare for its impacts.  The Plan includes sections on establishing a state, local, and tribal leaders’ task force, preparing for future floods, managing drought, boosting the resilience of infrastructure, supporting communities, and preparing a toolkit for climate resilience, in addition to many other topics.  The Plan also states that Federal agencies will be directed to ensure that climate risk-management considerations are fully integrated into Federal infrastructure and natural resource management planning.  To view the President’s Climate Action Plan, visit:
