Hopefully everyone has had the chance to see the launch event<http://youtu.be/pfe5oRdsCp0?t=7s> for the Climate Data Initiative and check out the fact sheet<http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/03/19/fact-sheet-president-s-climate-data-initiative-empowering-america-s-comm> outlining the announcements and a blog post<http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/03/19/climate-data-initiative-launches-strong-public-and-private-sector-commitments> from John Podesta and John Holdren.

Please continue to check out climate.data.gov<http://climate.data.gov> and  leave feedback<http://www.data.gov/climate/climate-feedback/> there to help us evolve our resources for open data that drive decision making.

I would also like to encourage you to consider helping us lead the U.S. Government's effort by applying to be a Presidential Innovation Fellow at NASA or NOAA -- applications are due by April 7th. Click here<http://www.whitehouse.gov/innovationfellows/projects> for more information.

There are a number of open opportunities, but In particular:

  *   The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is working to make its vast weather, climate, and earth observation data holdings more easily available and usable in the cloud, to unleash the full potential of these resources, spur economic growth, and help entrepreneurs launch businesses.
  *   The National Aeronautic and Space Administration is working to make its earth observation data open and machine-readable, and is working to make climate data easily findable and usable by innovators developing new climate resilience tools.
