Federal Agencies Outline Plans on Climate Change

Step one: Ask for lots and lots of money.


The Obama administration released thousands of pages on Friday documenting federal agencies' vulnerabilities to climate change and what those agencies plan to do about it.

In all, 38 agencies released climate change adaptation reports and sustainability plans to address climate threats and reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the federal government.

The Department of Justice, Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Postal Service and others charted threats climate change may have on their operations, and crafted plans to mitigate it.
