Tcktcktck Historical weather and climate data site. Legit?

This site has just the data I need.

But there’s no “About me” page or anything. I don’t see a way to vet it.

I googled tcktcktck and apparently it’s a UN climate action campaing, but the website itself says nothing.

I like their terms and conditions :rofl:

TLDR: This website seems not be owned or operated by the “Global Campaign for Climate Action” any more. It was for sale at GoDaddy for a while, then someone anonymous from Vietnam bought it in 2021.

Really weird, agree. In the past there used to be “about” and others… maybe you can find some more info through the internet archive? Nothing About UN as far as I can tell, though.

The domain is registered at GoDaddy by some Vietnamese person and is using CloudFlare:

https://www.godaddy.com/whois/results.aspx?checkAvail=1&domain=tcktcktck.org

Looks like that domain changed owners at least once: Tcktcktck.org [Whois Lookup, Whois History & Reverse Whois]

The .com and .net versions seem to have been abandoned by the “Global Campaign for Climate Action”, so maybe also the .org.

All in all: I’d be more than skeptical with that website.

Perhaps the name “TckTckTck” was a fairly decent clue?
