When did scientists first warn about global warming?
The first, led by scientist Roger Revelle (1909-1991) in 1957 and published in the journal Tellus (opens in new tab), found that the ocean will not absorb all of the carbon dioxide released in humanity’s industrial fuel emissions and that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere could, therefore, rise significantly.
Who discovered global warming?
In 1896 the Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius published a new idea. As humanity burned fossil fuels such as coal, which added carbon dioxide gas to the Earth’s atmosphere, we would raise the planet’s average temperature.
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.
