I am currently teaching a couple of climate science courses at PSU (OR) in which I have students work in groups to produce a poster and individual papers involving a climate topic of their choice. With the rapidly changing federal landscape and web presence, I’m concerned about students continuing to get access to data and information from the federal websites that are in danger of being overhauled with information that this administration considers to be safe. I am familiar with the data refuge projects that have been going on for some time now, but am only now learning what’s in them and how to connect up to them. During the next couple of days I am looking to create for the course websites a linked directory of major NOAA, DOE, and EPA climate education resources that have been archived by data refuge efforts. If any of you have already done this or know where it has been done, I’d definitely appreciate knowing about them.
