Global Warming: Reviewing The Chemistry And The Atmospherics

Image result for earth's atmosphere seen from space
The blue band is Earth's atmosphere.

The relationship between increased concentration of atmospheric CO2 and anthropogenic global warming was first described by Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius in 1896.  

In the photo at the thin blue band hugging the curvature of the earth is our atmosphere. 

Pumping increasing amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere is like packing a thin wall with ever more insulation. 

It's going to get HOT under the blanket.
