Climate Mirror is a distributed effort conducted by volunteers, in conjunction with efforts from institutions such as University of Pennsylvania, University of Toronto, and the Internet Archive, to mirror and back up U.S. Federal Climate Data before the Trump Administration takes office.
Our goal is to make store the data redundantly across the world. To see our current mirrors, visit climate.daknob.net. We also have several torrents that you can use to both retrieve data and assist in maintaining them.
Many of the volunteers involved in mirroring climate data are using these tools
If you have server space and want to start mirroring data, you can learn more about datasets to mirror, suggest datasets, and claim datasets here. If you want to get even more plugged into coordinating this effort, contact us and we will add you to a Slack team for this effort.
First, thank you! Hold onto your cash for right now - there may be a method for you to support the effort financially soon.
