Access to climate data is important. Last 3 December 2012, ALERTNET reported[1] that in Colombia, climate researchers complain of lack of access to data because it is expensive. Its main climate data service, the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies, charges more for access to its information than similar agencies in its Andean neighbors, and this lack of access to data, the scientists say, affects decision-making processes and puts lives at risk.

According to the World Meteorological Organization also quoted in the report, when it’s hard to get current climate data, researchers use “suboptimal, out-of-date data”. This can result in all sorts of bad planning, from where a country locates its farms to how it builds storm-resistant infrastructure. It can also mean bad long-term weather forecasting, leaving whole populations vulnerable to weather disasters.

According to the same report, Colombian scientists have to spend $1, 200 just to get one record of basic atmospheric pressure data they might need to study tropical climate change. That’s about the monthly salary of a young researcher. Another scientist researching extreme winds behavior could spend $23, 000, for one basic data series. That’s a two-year scholarship for a Colombian graduate student. Peru, Venezuela, Bolivia and Chile, by comparison, all share their climate data for free on the Internet. So does the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration

CHICAGO'S JEFF TWEEDY AND HIS BAND WRING INSPIRATION FROM INNER CHAOSBy Greg Kot
Greg Kot is the Tribune's rock criticOctober 14, 2001
Jeff Tweedy is minutes from going on stage to perform a solo concert, armed
only with his acoustic guitar, a harmonica and some of the best songs anyone
has written in the ...ing to
see us. And there is no doubt in my mind that for some people out there, we
are one of the threads they are hanging on to. And I think what we have to
do as a band is to make those people aware of how we need them as much as
they need us. To me, music is love, and I need it in my life just as much as
they need it in theirs.'Copyright (c) 2001, Chicago Tribune
