CEO Michael Riedijk of the Canadian company PageFreezer has archived 150 websites with American climate data. His archiving these websites is due to the announcement that president Donald Trump ordered the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take the websites on climate change offline.
A number of climate scientists and hackers already saw this coming and were already busy uploading and saving the information on European servers during Trump's inauguration. To rescue the data, it has been sent to the Dutch company PageFreezer, which placed the information on servers in the BIT data centers in Ede.
According to Riedijk, who did an interview on RTL Z last Friday, some climate data has already been deleted. Riedijk claims that he already archived 150 of the most important climate websites of the United States on external servers. Some of these servers are in the Netherlands, which makes it difficult for the US government to take the data offline.
