The Father Of Global Warming Saw It As A Benefit For Earth

Arrhenius introduced global warming as a benefit. Only recently did alarmists start their extreme weather BS, and only after the climate quit warming.

The Pueblo Leader – Jan 28, 1913

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,

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 surburban residents of Chicago may literally sit under their own fig trees and scuppernong grape arbors. Cotton will be 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

Illinois just had their coldest July on record, going back almost 20 years before Arrhenius’ prediction.

    This Stanford scientist has excellent insight into the problem of “Burning Buried Sunshine”

    “Illinois just had their coldest July on record, going back almost 20 years before Arrhenius’ prediction.”
    This phrase can be interpreted as one clear indication that Arrhenius was wrong. He said what he said because he didn’t have the amount of information (against his assumption of climate-CO2 relation) that we have now.
    It’s all about cycles (*especially* Solar cycles) and CO2 has almost nothing to do with it.

      Long term, we can only hope that CO2 increases are enough to protect us from the cooling due to orbital forcing as springs and summers shorten on the way to the next Ice Age. There’s no other method to potentially warm the climate to protect us from the very real dangers of climate cooling; although the effect of CO2 on temp might well be way less than the 1.6 C. per doubling predicted by Arrhenius. But we can be sure of the benefits on plant (food, forage and fiber) production by this aerial fertilizer. Bring it on!

      • Dmh says:

        “Bring it on!”, I agree. Even if a full blown ice age happened it’d take *many centuries* to reach full intensity, we have more than enough time to prepare and so much more technology than our ancestors- prehistorical humans- to survive the cold climate.
        I believe a great test of the power of CO2 to change/influence the present climate trend will be if the present solar cycle continues very low and the next becomes nearly zero- as in a prolonged minimum- as many are predicting. If CO2 is a powerful GHG no great alterations will occur, because its level in the atmosphere/relative density continues to increase.
        I have the impression though (based on the general trend since 2007) that it’s *not* very powerful, possibly due to saturation of its GH properties or some other reason.

    Old forests lie under the ocean,
    Where fishes once swam, cattle range.
    Everything’s always in motion,
    There is nothing constant but change.

    Bring back, bring back, O bring back a climate of which I dream.
    Bring back, bring back, O bring back the old Eocene.

  5. Guy Stewart Callendar said the same thing in the 1920’s. He said global warming would delay the next ice age.

    Guy Stewart Callendar in 1934
    Born February 1898
    Montreal, Canada
    Died October 1964
    Nationality English
    Known for Callendar Effect
    Guy Stewart Callendar (February 1898 – October 1964) was an English steam engineer and inventor. His main contribution to knowledge was developing the theory that linked rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere to global temperature. This theory, earlier proposed by Svante Arrhenius, has been called the Callendar effect. Callendar thought this warming would be beneficial, delaying a “return of the deadly glaciers.”[1]

  6. Steve Case says:

    That world-wide, global warming is regarded as a catastrophic disaster, is truly a testament to the power of propaganda

  7. Duster says:

    Arrhenius also was convinced, well after the Michelson-Morley falsified the idea, that there really was a luminiferous aether. Timothy Casey’s history of the Arrhenius version of the “Greenhouse effect” is quite interesting and fairly easily verified.

    Neither Arrhenius’ hopes nor Alarmist fears matter, as neither will come about. Only the politics of the AGW power grab matter.
