    Shumlin to serve

    on climate panel

    MONTPELIER — The White House has announced that Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin will serve on a nationwide task force on “Climate Preparedness and Resilience.”

    A total of 26 officials from around the country, including eight governors, local officials and two tribal representatives, have been named to the panel.

    The White House said the task force members will use their firsthand experiences in building climate preparedness and resilience in their communities to inform national policy decisions about climate change and natural disasters, according to Vermont Public Radio.

    Shumlin’s experience comes from Tropical Storm Irene, which caused severe flooding in Vermont and more than $200 million in damage.
