President Obama on Friday demanded new strategies to boost the nations resilience to powerful storms, drought, heat waves and other dangerous weather linked to climate change.
Obama issued a wide-ranging executive order designed to support climate resilient infrastructure investment in states and communities.
It also calls on federal agencies to change their policies and rules to make the Nation's watersheds, natural resources, and ecosystems, and the communities and economies that depend on them, more resilient in the face of a changing climate.
The executive order, echoing Obamas second-term climate agenda released in June, recognizes that climate change is inevitable even as the U.S. takes steps to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
It sets up a new "interagency Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience," and, to inform federal efforts, a "State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience."
The task force of state and local officials will provide ideas for "removing barriers to resilient investments, modernizing Federal grant and loan programs to better support local efforts, and developing the information and tools they need to prepare," the White House said.

You Right Wing Nuts shouldn't criticize the Imperial Moron for usurping his office by bypassing Congress and unconstitutionally issuing a royal decree ... cause those lame brain legislators won't act on their own ... and this is settled science ... and therefore the end justifies the means!
Henceforth, all “extrodinary” storms must first apply to the epa for a permit prior to commencement of wreaking havoc. Punishable by fines and denial of future permits.
Can’t he just stand up and command the wind and the waves to be still?
“Climate fueled storms”? Are there any other kind?
All that dough and still that face? It must be true that money can’t buy everything.
“This healthcare thing is a little harder than I thought...I think I’ll try to control the weather instead.”
This puke never tires of making a fool of himself
” - - - resilient investments - - - “
Must be Obama hired an new con phrase maker.
Duh, were the taxpayer dollars wasted on Solyndra “resilient?”
How many $ billions is this one going to cost?
My guess is, without reading the Order, that this is a thinly-veiled attempt to control ALL activity on land that is considered a watershed . . . which just happens to be ALL the land.
As such, this is an unconscionable and unprecedented power-grab that will be the last straw preventing a peaceful solution to governmental over-reach. . . it is intentionally provacative. If this stands, this EO will be used to invalidate private property rights. . . . IMHO
Again, I cannot express how mad this makes me.
Good grief - paging King Canute, please pick up the white courtesy phone.
Great. From lying about healthcare, to lying about weather threats.
We will not recognize this country in three years. Obama know that no one can stop him. Even if lawsuits are filed against his executive orders, O knows they will be tied up in the courts for years.
After being blessed with so much freedom and exposure too God’s word, this country has rejected God and has been given over to evil men. It’s tough to watch.
Indeed. King Canute-Obama thinks he can command the tides. That is above his pay grade. The King of Kings is still in charge of the weather.
President Canute also believes he can control the tides.
