Abstract:

This is the first biography of the remarkable scientist who linked the three key elements of global warming: rising temperatures, rising levels of anthropogenic carbon dioxide, and infrared sky radiation. He did this in 1938! The Callendar Effect is the name given to Guy Stewart Callendar's monumental discovery that climatic change could be brought about by increases in the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide due to human activities, primarily through burning fossil fuels. Callendar's life and work are reconstructed from his never-before-published original scientific correspondence, no.
