The Discovery of Climate Change

Extreme weather events are now more frequent and severe than ever. Floods, fires, heatwaves, or cold snaps get a lot of media attention, and climate scientists are starting to make increasingly direct and public statements about the risks for society. But the science behind what we’re seeing now has been known for 200 years. Do you want to know how climate change was discovered?

Learn about Joseph Fourier, Eunice Newton Foote, John Tyndall, Svante Arrhenius and the experiments that led to this discovery.
