EPA to Issue Climate Change Adaptation Plan Friday

Feb 8, 2013
(The Hill)

The Environmental Protection Agency is set to unveil a plan to counter the effects of climate change.

The draft EPA Climate Change Adaptation Plan, to be published for public consideration in Friday’s edition of the Federal Register, is meant to guide the agency's response to global warming, which it says is occurring at a rapidly increasing rate. 

"Until now, EPA has been able to assume that climate is relatively stable and future climate would mirror past climate," reads a notice previewing the plan’s release. "However, with climate changing at an increasingly rapid rate and outside the range to which society has adapted in the past, climate change is posing new challenges to EPA’s ability to fulfill its mission."
