In 1913, the father of global warming said that Earth would warm 8-9C and that the climate of Alaska would be like Maine
One of the greatest scientists in the world is Arrhenius of Sweden. He is a chemist and physicist, and has studied this matter. He shows that this proportion of carbon dioxide in the air will make the climate warmer, by acting like the glass root’ of a green house. With the carbon dioxide increased from two and one-half to three times, the temperature of the whole world will he raised 8 to 9 degrees centigrade-—and Greenland will have a good climate for farming. All the good soil of Canada will be in as temperate a climate as that now enjoyed by Missouri. Corn will be grown in the Peace River Valley. Oranges will be an orchard fruit in Arkansas and Virginia. The suburban residents of Chicago may literally sit under their own fig trees and scuppernong grape arbors. Cotton will he a stable crop in Iowa. Bananas will fringe the shores of the Gulf. Siberia will become the greatest farming country in the world. The great Antarctic continent–one of the greatest on earth in extent—will be the Western Canada, the Scandinavia, the Siberia of that day, and will have millions of people. Alaska will be as warm as Maine now is.
The science was idiotic, but Arrhenius saw global warming as a good thing. Fast forward 100 years, and the New York Times ups Arrhenius’ stupidity by a huge margin.
“Alaska is going to be the next Florida by the end of the century.”
Since Arrhenius made his forecast of warmth in Chicago – Illinois temperatures have plummeted and are the coldest on record this year. They peaked in 1921
There is no science or data to support this lunacy, yet it persists and grows century after century.
