Time To End The Climate Gravy Train
Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist who first claimed that the burning of hydrocarbons like coal, oil, gas, peat, and wood may cause global warming.
In 1895, he calculated (incorrectly) that a doubling of the atmospheric CO2 concentration would lead to a 4-5 degree C rise in global temperature.
However, Arrhenius suggested that this increase could be beneficial, making the various climates on Earth "more equable" and stimulating plant growth and food production.
Then a showman/politician, Al Gore, gave life to the theory that extra carbon dioxide due to human activities will cause dangerous global warming.
