Experts in the fields of climate science, science communication, software, and open knowledge have made the following statements about the Foundation:
“The Climate Code Foundation presents an invaluable resource to Climate Science – we code to the best of our ability but engaging with independent coding experts leaves us more time to focus on our scientific output and understanding” — Dr Kate Willett, UK Met Office.
“I’m pleased to support the Foundation, whose aims complement our own work on interoperability and standards for climate data – both seek to enhance access to climate science, for the public and research communities alike.” — Dr Andrew Woolf, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
“As critical decisions come to be based on climate science, open access and transparency are of paramount importance. This includes open and clear provision of climate science code. The Climate Code Foundation can help facilitate this and engender greater public engagement. Perhaps most importantly, open, clear and concise code provision may provide a means for both citizen and professional science innovations, ultimately improving our collective understanding of climate change.” — Dr Peter Thorne, CICS (NCDC).
“The Foundation is a group of dedicated and knowledgeable software professionals, who also have the mathematical and scientific background to understand and deal intelligently with the uncertainties involved in scientific data and projects. It has been a pleasure to work with them in a friendly, open and cooperative spirit.” — Dr Reto Ruedy, NASA GISS.
