Over ONE CENTURY of Climate Science Later and We Are Still Killing Our Planet

Climate science is certainly not too young to be reliable. Eunice Foot’s discoveries in the 1850s (Schwartz, p. 1) and John Tyndall’s discoveries in 1861 (Reidy, p. 13) prove that climate science studies have been around for over 100 years. Therefore, one cannot argue that this is a new topic. Tyndall explicitly said “…that anyContinue reading “Over ONE CENTURY of Climate Science Later and We Are Still Killing Our Planet”

Undiscovered Discoveries

Climate change is a major issue, and many people brush it off because it’s seen as an issue from the recent past. Based on the findings of scientists John Tyndall and Eunice Foote, the claim that climate change is only a present issue couldn’t be further from the truth. John Tyndall was the scientist thatContinue reading “Undiscovered Discoveries”

Foote’s Notes

Swartz’s article talks about how In 1856, Eunice Foote’s paper about the experiment, “Circumstances Affecting the Heat of the Sun’s Rays,“ concluded that “An atmosphere of that gas would give to our earth a high temperature.” Though her work, such as with jars, would not be fully recognized until later. Reidy’s article looks at theContinue reading “Foote’s Notes”

Doubled Instead of Dealt With

If there are people that say that climate science is still in its infancy, there are two possible reasons for this. For the first, they might have just not been aware of the people and experiments that have been documented in the past. This includes the work of people like Eunice Foote and John Tyndall;Continue reading “Doubled Instead of Dealt With”

Controversy, Hystaria, and Simply Science.

After reading Swartz and Reidy’s articles, the statement “You’ll often hear from climate contrarians that climate science is still in its infancy, too young to be reliable.” Isn’t necessarily true, as that besides time alone the controversial science behind climate change shows us evidence such as that from the Reidy article, Tyndall found that carbonContinue reading “Controversy, Hystaria, and Simply Science.”
