In this epsiode of This Green Earth Chris and Nell talk with Dr. Jyotika Virmani from the Schmidt Ocean Institute about the  impacts of private funding of the Keeling Curve.  The prestigious Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Schmidt Ocean Institute announced that the world's longest running carbon dioxide measurement, the Keeling Curve, will receive private funding from Eric and Wendy Schmidt.  Carbon dioxide levels in that atmosphere have increased 47% since the start of the Industrial Revolution, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels.
