Michael Bastasch, NY Approves World’s First Global Warming Museum, The Daily Caller, 22 June 2015

New York state has conditionally approved the charter of what is being billed as the world’s first museum on global warming.

The Associated Press reports the “plan for a museum in the city that would focus on climate and climate change, with exhibits that could relate to health, social justice and rain-delayed baseball games.”

The state’s Board of Regents approved The Climate Museum’s charter Monday, earning it media attention from news outlets excited to see a museum dedicated to showcasing global warming.

“It seemed like such an obvious thing for us as a city and a people to have,” Miranda Massie, executive director of the Climate Museum Launch Project said in a statement. “We have a museum of Tibetan art, a museum of mathematics.”

“Our point is to get people active and engaged on climate in a way that recognizes that if we come together we can solve the problem,” she added.

The museum may open in about five or six years, but is it fair to say this is the world’s “first” museum dedicated solely to climate. Natural history museums, including those in New York City and the nation’s capital, have exhibits on how Earth’s climate has changed over its history and impacted people and animals.
