    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The United States (US) announced a new system of regional hubs to tackle the effects of climate change on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) as the country’s southwest battle a historic drought. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the hubs “will address increasing risks such as fires, invasive pests, devastating floods, and crippling droughts on a regional basis.” In January, California declared a state of emergency because of what could be the worst drought in a century for the state—and which has prompted fears of lost harvests and devastating forest fires.
