The Science of ClimatologyStreaming Video - 2005
Since the Industrial Revolution sparked the widespread burning of fossil fuels, scientists have concerned themselves with the climatic effects of carbon dioxide. This program spotlights milestones in the history of that research as it seeks to understand humankind's impact on Earth's atmosphere. The greenhouse effect, global warming, ozone depletion, the Keeling Curve, the Atlantic Conveyor Theory, and other key concepts are illustrated through the contributions of Jean-Baptiste Fourier, John Tyndall, Svante Arrhenius, Charles Keeling, Joe Farman, James Hansen, Richard Alley, and Wally Broecker.
