White House Announces 7 Regional Climate Hubs
New York Times ^ | February 5, 2014 | By CORAL DAVENPORT

Posted on 02/06/2014 5:53:38 PM PST by Brad from Tennessee

WASHINGTON — On the heels of the Senate’s passage of a long-awaited farm bill, the Obama administration announced the creation of seven regional “climate hubs” on Wednesday to help farmers and rural communities respond to the risks of climate change, including drought, invasive pests, fires and floods.

White House officials described the move as one of several executive actions that President Obama will take on climate change without action from Congress.

In substance, the creation of the climate hubs is a limited step, but it is part of a broader campaign by the administration to advance climate policy wherever possible with executive authority. The action is also part of a push to build political support for the administration’s more divisive moves on climate change — in particular, the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations on coal-fired power plants.

The hubs will be in Ames, Iowa; Durham, N.H.; Raleigh, N.C.; Fort Collins, Colo.; El Reno, Okla.; Corvallis, Ore.; and Las Cruces, N.M. The hubs will be set up at existing federal facilities and will not receive extra financing. . .

Partitioning the US into executive administrative areas so the EPA can rule them by fiat.

> drought, invasive pests, fires and floods

Uh, these things have ALWAYS been with us, and have NOTHING AT ALL TO DO with the fantasy construct of “climate change”.

Just another power grab masquerading as the government coming to “help” us.

The next conservative president should set up “Pro-life” hubs by executive order to help women who are considering abortion to choose life instead.The standard is set, as long as no “additional funding” is used the president can do it.

And ,.. expect to hear more about "Sustainability" and other buzz-words and fables from the Agenda 21 crowd.
These "hubs " are an attempt to further decentralize accountability and responsibility .

Climate hubs. Is that what we’re calling domestic espionage centers & drone storage facilities now?

Interesting how, as globalisation becomes more the way the world works, the world and its nations keep getting carved out into new entities. I recall reading something about in Revelation about ten regions with ten “kings” when it all shakes out in the end. The picture that we’ve seen through a glass darkly, for centuries, is becoming clearer and clearer.

Matthew 24:24

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

I wonder if these seven regional “climate hubs” will come complete with fenced in “refugee camps” and heavily armed “aid workers”.

The executives will be designated as Hub Caps.

“White House Announces 7 Regional Climate Hubs”

If these are places to go to get warmed up from the record-breaking bitter cold, ice and snow around the nation, I’m all for them. But 7 isn’t enough. Way more than that are needed. OH, WAIT ...
