Many experts point to 1988 as a critical turning point when watershed events placed global warming in the spotlight. The summer of 1988 was the hottest on record (although many since then have been hotter). 1988 also saw widespread drought and wildfires within the United States.
When was global warming first declared?
1975 – US scientist Wallace Broecker puts the term “global warming” into the public domain in the title of a scientific paper.
How did global warming start?
The early onset of warming can be attributed to the initial rises in greenhouse gases caused by the Industrial Revolution. The turning point in our climate was probably also influenced by recovery from a massive volcanic eruption (Tambora) in 1815, which caused the infamous “year without a summer” in Europe.
Who came up with global warming?
Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist that was the first to claim in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. He proposed a relation between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and temperature.
