Fairfax Climate Watch officially holds the position that modern climate change is the largest issue to face humanity in all of recorded history. Nearly all living and non-living systems on the surface of this planet are now being influenced by human-caused climate change. Effects are spreading from geochemical nutrient cycles to economic cycles. We believe that more needs to be said, known, and done about climate change.
Our mission is to honestly communicate climate science and related information in a productive context.
Our work is distributed across several connected projects. Besides our main website, Fairfax Climate Watch, we also highlight important climate news stories from around the world via Climate News on Google Plus.
Questions? Comments? Get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are located in Fairfax County, Virginia, USA.
Contributors and Directors
John Cartmill: Director & contributor. John's background is in physics and programming. He has worked as a defense contractor for the Navy doing acoustic and oceanographic modeling, systems integration, and data acquisition. He also served as the Technical Director for Triumph College Admissions developing on-line SAT test prep from 1998-2007. He's had a longstanding interest in weather and climate, but after Katrina hit - and it impacted a lot of his family in that area - he really dove in and has been keeping tabs on climate change non-stop since. He brings a scientifically and technically grounded perspective to this issue. And as the father of 2, he's well-aware of the generational implications the climate crisis poses. email@example.com
