While billions of new federal tax dollars are earmarked to help people leave climate vulnerable areas, a POLITICO investigation found that those programs often fail because of inconsistencies and bureaucracy. But Washington needs to create a solution soon since the impact of natural disasters on real estate, public infrastructure, and insurance is increasing. POLITICO’s Zack Colman discusses how the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma has tried to mitigate the risk and if the federal government is ready to confront how climate change is impacting housing. Plus, the Interior Department proposed a new rule aimed at reducing the venting and flaring of methane from oil and gas production on federal lands.
