During his visit to California on Friday, President Obama will announce a new $1 billion resilience fund for communities battling climate change.
The Climate Resilience Fund, meant to help communities better adapt to the impacts of climate change, is a part of the administration's new drought response efforts that Obama will launch on Friday after visiting with farmers in Fresno, Calif.
During a call with reporters on Thursday evening, the assistant to the president on science and technology, John Holdren, said without any doubt the severe drought plaguing California and a number of other states across the country are tied to climate change.
"Weather practically everywhere is being caused by climate change," Holdren said.
The new fund separate from Obama's climate agenda announced last June will be detailed in the president's 2015 budget, set for release next month.
The administration's fund will invest in research to gather data on the impacts of climate change, help communities prepare for the impacts, and support innovative technologies and infrastructure to ready the country "in the face of a changing climate."
"Recent events have reinforced our knowledge that our communities and economy remain vulnerable to extreme weather and natural hazards," the administration said in a statement on Thursday.
When asked if talk of climate change tied to extreme weather events like California's drought by Obama would become more frequent, Holdren said it already has been a recurring talking point for the president.
Holdren added: "You can expect the president will talk about the connection between increasing frequency in the intensity of drought and climate change on Friday" and in the future.
Nope. The enviro-weenies insist that 'weather isn't the climate'. Back to the drawing board.
Better known as the democrat midterm election fund. Cause it’s only going to his buddies and they’re going to kick it back.. for sure.. and payed for by us.
I believe the term they’re shifting to is “Climate inconsistency” because the weather is always changing.
The House needs to stop funding all this democrat vote buying.
It’s not a hoax. It’s outright fraud and theft.
You are right. This is a slush fund for democrat constituencies.
You must allocate the money before you can steal the money. This money will go to leftist corporations that will give it back to democrat politicians. “We’ll give you 50 million, you donate 45 million to the DNC”.
“Weather practically everywhere is being caused by climate change,” Holdren said
This clown is the President's Science Advisor.
Anyone with enough sense to come in out of the record breaking sleet and snow knows that Global Warming is just being used by liberals to scam people out of money.
Gore uses it to enrich himself.
Obama uses it to steal from working taxpayers and give money to his wealthy financial supporters and his Free S**t Army batallions of moochers.
Laundering scam to support rat re election
OMG, LIBs/DIMs continue to be insane.
“Weather, weather everywhere, and not a drop to tax.”
Until now that is.
I know this seems ridiculous but our side better start debating these assertions now. It is not enough to say they’re nuts politicians are not scientists and cowardly by nature. Our pols - the few that we have like Cruz - better align with some scientists that don’t believe this crap and start refuting it. Thus far the leftists have gotten a free ride with these phony assertions.
