Rural climate hubs?


“For generations, America’s farmers, ranchers and forest landowners have innovated and adapted to challenges,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said. However, he said, rural communities face more complex challenges today because of climate change. “USDA’s climate hubs are part of our broad commitment to developing the next generation of climate solutions so that our agricultural leaders have the modern technologies and tools they need to adapt and succeed in the face of a changing climate,” Vilsack said. The hubs will be in Iowa, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oregon and New Mexico. Additional sub-hubs will be set up in various other states, including Michigan and California. Climate hubs will focus on regional issues, and will equip local communities with knowledge to help them adapt. “Sub hubs will support the hub within their region and focus on a narrow and unique set of issues relative to what will be going on in the rest of the hub,” the White House said in a statement. Rural communities have been especially hit by climate change.

What an intrusive religion is leftism.

    Just what we need. More bureaucrats, and more government. One wonders if this is more about finding lefties jobs than ‘climate change’? Perhaps these are some of the ‘green jobs’ 0bama touted?
