Biography

The Keeling Curve is a measurement of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere made by scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, for the past 55 years. It provided some of the first evidence of human-caused global warming and has become an emblem of careful, precise measurement of natural phenomena.

How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?

In 2013, Scripps began making Keeling Curve data available daily for the first time ever via @keeling_curve. This Twitter feed helped the public see climate change in a new way as carbon dioxide concentrations in air reached 400 parts per million for the first time in human history in May 2013. As people try to assess climate change, this is a new resource available nowhere else to make climate change something people can track every day and put in perspective.
