The Gold Standard of Climate Research Needs Your Support!

The Gold Standard of Climate Research Needs Your Support! In 1958, award-winning climatologist Charles Keeling started the now historic tracking of atmospheric CO2 concentrations at a Hawaiian mountain station. It shows how the rise of this greenhouse gas correlates with the burning of fossil fuels, encapsulated in the famous Keeling Curve (wiki it!). Tracking continues to show just how fast the gas is increasing AND the worldwide decrease of oxygen – crucial, basic information still needed. But the US govt, which has a poor record of funding longterm projects, has stopped funding this important one. It’s time for Americans to step forward. Any amount is appreciated and helps! You can donate here, and please spread the word!
