Climate (model) data 
  1. Nearly all climate datasets from the instrumental record (and many of the (IPCC -AR4) GCM data sets) can be downloaded using the KNMI Climate Explorer from http://climexp.knmi.nl  
  2. Nearly all proxy data records can be downloaded from http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/paleo/data.html
  3. The CMIP5 data base of IPCC - AR5 models can be found on http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/data_getting_started.html
