    President Joe Biden announced on Monday a doubling of federal spending on preparations for severe weather events, the president’s latest move to put climate change at the center of his domestic agenda.

    The administration will provide $1 billion this year to state, local and tribal governments to prevent damage from floods, hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters, the White House said in a statement. Biden is also directing the National Aeronautic and Space Administration to collect more advanced climate data.

    “We all know these storms are coming, and we’re going to be prepared,” Biden said during a visit to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters. “We have to be ready.”
