The United States of America is all set to bring in a new set of rules and regulations in order to overcome the adverse climate change effect. The federal agencies have taken few steps to address the public about the impact of global warming especially the drastic changes that have occurred in the climate.

The recent reports said that the Environmentalists and Energy Department of US are exploring how to bring about a change in the infrastructure of oil and gas infrastructure and also to harden the electric grid. The Federal administration of the country is partnering with national roadway security in order to bring about a change in the policies of construction. The USAID is currently working on recurrent crises such as storms, floods, and droughts.

This move by USAID is being supported by NOAA, it is all set to award the required grants to prepare a coastal community for developing new ideas and innovations to face extreme weather. The Defense Department is also preparing for a sea-level rise which could inundate about 128 waterfront bases.

"Throughout the federal government, there are career employees who are dedicated to making sure that the infrastructure or facilities for which they're responsible don't drown and working to take precautions even if they need to speak in whispers," stated Michael Gerrard, professor and director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School.

This decision taken by the federal agencies of the United States of America is appreciated by the environmentalists and activists. The modern touch in the infrastructure will not only help the country to face climatic change give a new insight into modern infrastructure development.
