It's good to see that Obama is preparing for the hurricane season. I hope that he prepares for the upcoming dangers in a domestic and international context. The US should do more to address severe poverty and disasters abroad for national security and humanitarian reasons. The Borgen Project has good info on the estimated cost of ending global poverty:

$30 billion: Annual shortfall to end world hunger.

$550 billion: U.S. Defense budget.
