By Nat Geo Wild A storm that brought a drenching rain to a major metropolitan area on Sunday brought a new chapter to the story of the U.S. government’s response to climate change.
In a news release, the U and W administrations announced a $1.9 billion settlement for the state of Texas over flooding.
This settlement will also include the creation of a new research program aimed at understanding the climate and the impacts of climate change, and the implementation of a national response plan to help address the impacts and to help mitigate the impacts.
The news release also included details of the state’s $10 million fund to help Texans prepare for extreme weather.
The deal with the state comes amid a national debate about the cost of dealing with extreme weather and climate change that has been taking place over the past several months.
The National Weather Service released a report in February saying the average cost of a severe weather event in the U, including flooding, heat waves, droughts, tornadoes and hurricanes, had increased by more than $100 billion since the mid-1990s.
The government will pay the cost and support the costs of a disaster response plan that will include the provision of critical supplies and the development of a climate adaptation plan.
The state will also fund the costs and provide a grant of up to $100,000 to the University of Texas at Austin for the development and implementation of an adaptive response plan.
A number of other states have announced similar climate action plans in recent weeks.
In January, the California governor’s office announced a climate action plan to address rising sea levels and drought.
That plan also includes a $5 million grant for the University.
In April, the State of Massachusetts announced a new plan to prepare for a future of extreme weather, including climate change impacts.
That state also announced a grant for a climate science and adaptation research program.
On Sunday, President Donald Trump, who has promised to make the U a “green energy superpower,” said the federal government should be involved in climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The U.N. climate conference in Marrakesh begins Monday in Morocco, and will be followed by a U.K. summit on Monday and the opening of a U-N climate summit on Tuesday.
