Eunice Newton Foote's paper on CO2

Fantastic Women Series: Eunice Newton Foote

Eunice Newton Foote - She was the first one to observe the effect of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 1856. We know this now as the Greenhouse Effect, the cause of our current global warming.

Global sea levels will rise past 1.8°C planetary warming

A study published in Nature Communications by an international team of scientists shows that an irreversible loss of the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, and a corresponding rapid acceleration...
