By Charles Pekow — Climate change is affecting everything, including historic treasures. So, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation adopted a Policy Statement on Climate Change and Historic Preservation. The council, an independent federal agency created by the National Historic Preservation Act, advises the president and Congress.

Its statement lists policy principles to mitigate climate change, including “efficient and effective permitting processes and environmental reviews” for clean energy and climate-friendly transportation infrastructure projects, specifically including “bicycle infrastructure.” It provides no details, however.

But maybe the president and Congress will get the message. See https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2023-08-03/html/2023-16569.htm
