More Federal Funding for Weather and Climate Needs

From the WashPost: As hurricane season looms, Biden doubles funding to prepare for extreme weather. Administration will also launch new NASA initiative aimed at collecting better climate data. An excerpt from the discussion of rising costs:

“Long, now executive vice president at Hagerty Consulting, said it was too early to judge Biden’s handling of natural disasters. But he warned that these events are only escalating: The toll during his time as FEMA administrator equaled nearly $456.7 billion in damage and associated costs, which was more than under the past nine administrators combined.”
