1896: Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish physicist, chemist, and 1903 Nobel Prize winner, estimates that a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide would raise Earth's temperature by 5 to 6 degrees Celsius, averaged across all latitudes. 1938: English engineer ...
In the 1890s a Swedish scientist, Svante Arrhenius, ran some “tedious calculations” on the greenhouse effect and went on to explain how burning fossil fuels might intensify it (living in a cold country, he thought this a thoroughly good thing). Things ...
The fragile framework
In 1896, the Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius calculated how changes in the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere could warm or cool Earth. He later suggested humans were raising the planet's temperature and it would become noticeable in a few centuries.

There is no doubt that 400 glaciers have simply melted away since the 1700s. Climate scientists grow weary pointing this out. Svante Auguste Arrhenius issued a warning in 1890 that unlimited burning of fossil fuels will eventually threaten all life on ...
