Interior Secretary Ken Salazar signed a Secretarial order on Monday setting up a Climate Change Response Council and eight regional response centers to study and respond to issues such as rising sea levels threatening historic structures and wildlife habitat. The order builds on the agency’s efforts earlier this year to jumpstart renewable energy and carbon capture projects on park, refuge, and tribal lands. Eight DOI regional Climate Change Response Centers serving Alaska, the Northeast, the Southeast, the Southwest, the Midwest, the West, Northwest, and Pacific regions, “will synthesize existing climate change impact data and management strategies, help resource managers put them into action on the ground, and engage the public through education initiatives. In addition, a network of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives will engage DOI and federal agencies, local and state partners, and the public to craft practical, landscape-level strategies for managing climate change impacts within the eight regions.”

Earlier this year, the National Trust submitted testimony for the record before the House Subcommittees on National Parks, Forests, and the Public Lands Subcommittee on Insular Affairs, Oceans and Wildlife on June 23rd. The Trust’s testimony provided insight to lawmakers on the impact of climate change on historic and cultural resources in the Chesapeake Bay watershed area and also proposed federal policy efforts to address climate change’s effects on historic and cultural resources nationwide.
