OldScience

The history of the discovery of global warming/climate change goes back much farther in time than people think.

And no, global warming was not invented by  Al Gore.  NASA scientist James Hansen didn’t discover it either, despite his 1988 testimony before Congress. Global warming theory has been around for a long time, since before industrialization.  In fact, it started with observations in 300 B.C.!

How did the idea for global warming and climate change start?

Find out in this episode, with a global warming history timeline assisted by Mother Jones and other news sources.  It brings you right up to the present.
