Why climate change researchers are freaking out When Donald Trump was elected, most people probably weren’t concerned about the future of data. But for some groups, that was top of mind.
Data Refuge was founded after the election, with a goal of tracking and safeguarding government data.
The volunteer group of hackers, writers, scientists and students collects federal data about climate change in order to preserve the information and keep it publicly accessible.
“When things like science are politicized, scientific information will be less accessible,” said Dr. Bethany Wiggin, co-director of Data Refuge. “If you can keep knowledge out of the hands of your political opponents, that’s an effective win.”
