The Global Warming Mitigation Project invites applications for the Keeling Curve Prize to locate and fund the best climate solutions the world has to offer in 2021
The Keeling Curve is a graph that represents the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth’s atmosphere since 1958. It is named after its creator, Dr. Charles David Keeling.
Since the recordings began, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has steadily increased, representing anthropogenic climate change. It’s our goal to bend the curve back down.
The Global Warming Mitigation Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is identifying, activating, and accelerating projects and programs worldwide that are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing carbon uptake. This includes direct funding of vetted organizations, enhancing networking and promotional efforts, identifying ways to unleash funding opportunities for climate solutions, and supporting climate justice
Their goal is to bend the Keeling Curve.
To that end, they’re looking for projects with a proven track record of taking greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere.’
They’ve developed five categories, each one addressing a specific sector of climate innovation.
They welcome entries for active projects or programs (not ideas or untested hypotheses) from anywhere in the world. Prizes are awarded for ongoing work only (not as a reward for unimplemented ideas or past work).
Deadline: The prize application period closes at midnight GMT, February 10, 2021.
