Today, delivering on commitments made in his Climate Action Plan, President Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) to strengthen the Nation’s preparedness for and resilience to the impacts of climate change. Actions directed by the EO include:
Preparing America for climate-change impacts is a key pillar of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan. The actions directed by the President today are common sense steps to help ensure that America’s infrastructure, communities, and natural resources are resilient to sea-level rise, increasingly frequent large storms, increased drought, and other climate-change impacts that are already being felt in regions across the country. These steps will also help empower the Nation’s businesses, communities, health professionals, and decision makers with the tools and scientific information they need to make planning decisions in a changing climate.
