At noon today in Washington DC, all mentions of "climate change" and "global warming" were eliminated from the White House website.
Well, not all. The word "climate" still shows up here:
President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan....
Luckily, at the Azimuth Climate Data Backup Project, we've been preparing for exactly this. We've been racing to save publicly available climate data at NASA, NOAA, and other agencies that Trump now controls.
Please visit our Kickstarter page, learn more about what we've done, contribute some money, and help us out!
We plan to make our data publicly available, so we need money for servers and storage. Right now we can afford to hold it for about 3 years. 8 would be better.
Luckily, this week the head of U. C. Riverside's Computing and Communications department, Danna Gianforte, said they would commit to hosting our data over the long term! So, we will also work to transfer it there and set up a usable interface.
We're part of a larger initiative, ClimateMirror.org. Different teams are saving different databases. For example, the End of Term Archive has saved Obama's White House web pages.

In the comments below, I will list some people who have helped the Azimuth Backup Project with their donations. One person contributed $2000, three contributed $1000 and two contributed $500. That's wonderful, and I thank these people immensely! But most of our success is due to large numbers of smaller contributions.

Welcome to the new era.
This is worth taking into consideration.
I for one also thought all the tweets from @POTUS was deleted, but they were moved to @POTUS44.
