|| Keeling Curve Prize
|| The application period is open for the 2020 Keeling Curve Prize, which awards $25,000 to each of 10 projects designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or increase their uptake. Each year, this prestigious competition attracts inspiring entries from around the world.
The prize is named after scientist Charles David Keeling's iconic graph showing a sharp increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere since the 1950s. Earlier this year, the Keeling Curve showed atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide topping 415 ppm — higher than at any other time in human history.
"Around the world, people of all ages and backgrounds are spearheading projects that can help us bend the Keeling Curve and stave off the worst effects of global warming," said Keeling Curve Prize Executive Director Jacquelyn Francis. "This prize is about supporting and accelerating these efforts. We have no time to waste."
The 2020 Keeling Curve Prize application period closes on Feb. 1. Finalists will be named in the spring, and winners will be announced in the summer.
