"Global Warming" you are on my list!!!!!!

 

This is a picture of Sant Fe, New Mexico. Global warming has popped up outa no where and taken unfair advantage of us. The scientists should of at least been able to warn us about this!!!You snuck up on us and that't not fair! I am pretty sure my goverment had no idea there was such a thing as global warming until yesterday!!

Sure there are signs in the ice cap that Crabon Dioxide started building up in the early 1800's.

And Tyndall discovered that some gasses block infared radiation and therorized this could cause climate change in 1824.

Arrhenius publishes first calculation of global warming from human emissions of CO2 in 1896.

In the 1930s we reported a global warming trend since late 19th century .

 

1958
Telescope studies show a greenhouse effect raises temperature of the atmosphere of Venus far above the boiling point of water.

1960
Downturn of global temperatures since the early 1940s is reported.

Keeling accurately measures CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere and detects an annual rise.The level is 315 ppm.

Aerosols from human activity are shown to be increasing swiftly. Bryson claims they counteract global warming and may bring serious cooling

Manabe and Wetherald make a convincing calculation that doubling CO2 would raise world temperatures a couple of degrees.

1968
Studies suggest a possibility of collapse of Antarctic ice sheets, which would raise sea levels catastrophically

1982
Greenland ice cores reveal drastic temperature oscillations in the space of a century in the distant past.

Strong global warming since mid-1970s is reported, with 1981 the warmest year on record

1983
Reports from U.S. National Academy of Sciences and Environmental Protection Agency spark conflict, as greenhouse warming becomes prominent in mainstream politics.

1985
Villach conference declares consensus among experts that some global warming seems inevitable, calls on governments to consider international agreements to restrict emissions.

Antarctic ice cores show that CO2 and temperature went up and down together through past ice ages, pointing to powerful biological and geochemical feedbacks.

Broecker speculates that a reorganization of North Atlantic Ocean circulation can bring swift and radical climate change.

1987
Montreal Protocol of the Vienna Convention imposes international restrictions on emission of ozone-destroying gases.

1988
News media coverage of global warming leaps upward following record heat and droughts plus testimony by Hansen.

Toronto conference calls for strict, specific limits on greenhouse gas emissions.

Ice-core and biology studies confirm living ecosystems make climate feedback by way of methane, which could accelerate global warming.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is established.

Level of CO2 in the atmosphere reaches 350 ppm
