The goal is to make the information more accessible to communities, researches and industries that adapt their production to the global warming.
“By taking the enormous data sets regularly collected by NASA, NOAA, and other agencies and applying the ingenuity, creativity, and expertise of technologists and entrepreneurs, the Climate Data Initiative will help create easy-to-use tools for regional planners, farmers, hospitals, and businesses across the country—and empower America’s communities to prepare themselves for the future,” said John Podesta, a counselor to the president, and John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, in a joint statement.
The president’s additional plan is to ask Congress for $1 billion in his 2015 budget to establish a “climate resiliency fund”. The money should be used to finance research, preparation and infrastructure to adapt to extreme weather driven by global warming. The private sector initiatives will be attracted to help disseminating related information. Even Google prepares a participation working with the Desert Research Institute, the University of Idaho and the University of Nebraska “to provide drought mapping and monitoring for the entire continental United States in near real-time.”
