"He was a registered Republican... he would have been dismayed" - NYT on Keeling

A Scientist, His Work and a Climate Reckoning - today's New York Times front-page profile of Charles David Keeling, discoverer of the rising-CO2 Keeling curve.
Dr. Keeling’s widow, Louise, said that if her husband had lived to see the hardening of the political battle lines over climate change, he would have been dismayed.

“He was a registered Republican,” she said. “He just didn’t think of it as a political issue at all.”
