Climate Change Hub In Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
President Barack Obama's administration will announced the creation of seven regional hubs to help coordinate and distribute information about dealing with the effects of climate change, including one in Oklahoma.

The Grazinglands Research Laboratory in El Reno has been named the Southwest Plains Hub. It's website can be seen here.

The hubs are to help farmers and rural communities fight global warming and adapt to weather changes.

The hubs will assess local climate risks, such as drought and wildfires, and then develop plans for dealing with them, such as improved irrigation techniques.
