White House launches new climate data initiative Wednesday
Washington Post ^ | 03/19/2014 | BY JULIET EILPERIN

Posted on 03/19/2014 8:08:34 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The White House is launching an initiative Wednesday that aims to expand the use of climate data nationwide, to help communities cope with the impacts of global warming.

The effort includes making federal data more accessible through climate.data.gov; launching a design competition to demonstrate the extent to which Americans are vulnerable to coastal flooding; releasing new federal map data to depict which aspects of the nation's infrastructure are vulnerable to climate change; and enlisting private firms such as Google and the software company Esri to disseminate and store data.

In a joint blog post, White House counselor John D. Podesta and the president's science adviser John P. Holdren wrote that the effort "will help create easy-to-use tools for regional planners, farmers, hospitals, and businesses across the country—and empower America’s communities to prepare themselves for the future."

"Every citizen will be affected by climate change—and all of us must work together to make our communities stronger and more resilient to its impacts," they wrote.

Propaganda central. Scrubbed data with alarmist interpretation, no doubt.

3rd time I post this today:

And now the regime is helping communities prepare for the invariable poverty and 3rd world status, that this bogus emergency will bring...

"launching a design competition to demonstrate the extent to which Americans are vulnerable to coastal flooding; releasing new federal map data to depict which aspects of the nation's infrastructure are vulnerable to climate change; In other words, lying to expand the flood zones to include more home sites in mandatory flood insurance so as to bleed the "rich" and feed the "poor." A pox on them. BTW: What the hell is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration doing in this matter? TC

Blame Bush is getting tiresome, the race card has been overplayed, blame the republicans leads to blaming the democrats too, blame the Koch brothers isn't getting traction. So let's blame Global Warming. That can be our next straw man to distract the masses from everything that is going on. We can't always count on a Hurricane Sandy to pull our bacon out of the fire.

Those higher heating and cooling bills aren't due to us shutting down coal-fired plants, preventing the Keystone pipeline or tying up oil drilling. It's Global Warming. Higher vegetable prices aren't due to poor water usage decisions. Its Global Warming, Higher meat prices aren't due to mandated ethanol usage in gasoline depleting feed grain. It's Global Warming.

And just you wait. You are not going to believe the number of things that contribute to Global Warming.

(I capitalized Global Warming as I do to all of the World's major religions)

Are the Guam pictures from before it capsized?

All Al Gore needs now is a fiddle to play on ... and on ... and on.
