Un-f-ing believable!!! US govt defunding the Keeling Curve data collection!!! Please help support it :-)

Support the Keeling Curve!

“…A measurement that captures, more than any other single number, the extent to which we are changing the world—for better or worse.”
The strength of the Keeling Curve record of rising carbon dioxide levels in the world’s skies lies in its longevity and high quality. Now, more than ever, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego needs the help of the public to support Keeling Curve observations and the discoveries that come from those observations. Your donation to the Scripps CO2 Program helps ensure that regardless of unpredictable government funding, these vital Keeling Curve measurements will continue without interruption.
Additionally we hope to be able to permanently offer the daily update to the public provided by this website and the @keeling_curve Twitter feed, but seek funds to fully automate the processing and delivery of CO2 data to viewers around the world.
The Keeling Curve has unrivaled status as an icon of the human imprint on the planet. Altering the trajectory of the Keeling Curve by slowing down greenhouse gas emissions will be a key marker of our success in protecting future generations from the worst effects of climate instability. Society may first come to know that its efforts to slow global warming are paying off when measurements taken at Mauna Loa and its companion stations reveal that the Keeling Curve is no longer rising, but, at last, falling.

This is an interesting development in US internal politics. I whole-heartedly support the closing down of the Keeling Curve. I do not see why USA should have the longest record of atmospheric CO2. After all, it isn't mentioned even in the arctic report card in 2013, so the occasional scientist who might need a record of this insignificant trace gas can buy it outside USA knowing that his studies will never get referred in public congressional reports and main stream media. The purpose of this defunbding is to outsource research funding to green groups, so we can state complicity when they try to sue us.

I posted your comment because it is yet another striking example of the weird thought processes of climate change science deniers.
