Critical Commentary

In 2016, the U.S. EPA under Donald Trump began to remove references to Climate Change from their website, leading to a concerted effort of scientists and advocates to "rescue" data, but also elaborate methods to monitor websites (Tirrell et al. 2020).

Civic community archives can help document such data rescue and monitoring efforts. Further, they can help make data available that is otherwise precariously stored.
