DSB I, p. 302; Poggendorff IV, 40. FIRST EDITION of Arrhenius' landmark works on global warmimg, exceptionally rare with the final part published in 1901 and in the offprint wrappers intended for private discribution (not to compare with the regular journal issues which have printed wrappers with price stated). That the true offprints are frequently mixed up in literature and sales catalogues is owned to the fact that the regular issues of this supplement series to the 'Proceedings of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' were distributed in single numbers with printed wrappers. None of latter are offprints in the classical sense (i.e. copies given by the publisher to the author for distribution to colleagues and friends).
In developing a theory to explain the ice ages Arrhenius was the first to use basic principles of physical chemistry to calculate the extent to which increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) will increase Earth's surface temperature through the greenhouse effect. These calculations led him to conclude that human-caused CO2 emissions, from fossil-fuel burning and other combustion processes, are large enough to cause global warming. This conclusion has been extensively tested, winning a place at the core of modern climate science. Arrhenius, in this work, built upon the prior work of other famous scientists, including Joseph Fourier, John Tyndall and Claude Pouillet. Arrhenius wanted to determine whether greenhouse gases could contribute to the explanation of the temperature variation between glacial and inter-glacial periods. (cf. H. Rodhe et al. Svante Arrhenius and the Greenhouse Effect. In: Ambio, vol. 26, no. 1, 1997, pp. 2-5). In the second and final part, Arrhenius also replies to the criticism of his global warming theory by Knut Ångström. - Visit our website to see more images!
