‘“Svante August Arrhenius (19 February 1859 – 2 October 1927) was a Swedish scientist, originally a physicist, but often referred to as a chemist, and one of the founders of the science of physical chemistry. He received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1903,…”“He is acknowledged as the father of the CO2 driven global warming hypothesis and supposedly one of the greatest scientists of his time.
“In 1910 he is quoted in a newspaper article thus:“The present proportion of carbon dioxide in the air is about one part in 2,500.”
“Arrhenius thought doubling the CO2 levels would provide huge benefits by increasing the available land for agriculture.
“But the point I want you to note is this
“The present proportion of carbon dioxide in the air is about one part in 2,500.”’
