President Obama plans to include a new $1 billion taxpayer-funded Climate Resilience Fund in his 2015 budget to help communities deal with weather-related disasters caused by climate change. But the president’s proposal comes less than two months after the end of 2013 – which has been called “one of the least extreme weather years ever.”

Although details will not be released until next month, the president’s proposed Climate Resilience Fund will be “ultimately focused on how all these changes in weather patterns are going to have an impact up and down the United States — not just on the coast but inland as well — and how do we start preparing for that,” Obama said during a Feb. 14 speech in drought-stricken California, adding that dealing with climate change “cannot be a partisan endeavor.”

Shortly before the speech, John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, told reporters that “we really understand a number of the reasons that global climate change is increasing the intensity and the frequency and the life of drought in drought-prone regions. This is one of the better-understood dimensions of the relationship between global climate change and extreme weather in particular regions.”
