The idea

We’re backing up US government databases on climate change and the environment before Trump takes office on January 20th. We need some money for storage space and a server server.

Background

The safety of US government climate data is at risk. Trump plans to have climate change deniersrunning every agency concerned with climate change. His choice for head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruit, has called himself a “leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda”, and he led 28 states in a lawsuit against the EPA to block Obama’s plan to fight global warming. His choice for the Department of Energy, Rick Perry, has said we have been experiencing a cooling trend and “there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects”.
