Data Rescue Los Angeles

Title

Data Rescue Los Angeles

Description

The Southern California Climate Data Protection Project is committed to protecting and preserving scientific climate data, through systematic analysis of infrastructures and methods of data collection, curation, and management. We are equally concerned with how access to scientific data allows the public to invest in government accountability and to demand sustainable policies.

Our goal is to preserve the research society needs at a time of ongoing climate change. This concern is real, as the federal government has already moved to expunge information related to climate change from whitehouse.gov and barred EPA staff from awarding any new contracts and grants.
