Brilliant! Our hero! It doesn’t hurt that pioneering modern climate science was merely a hobby for ol’ Svante, carried out during down time from his real life’s work: exploring the connection between physics and chemistry, for which he won a Nobel prize in 1903 . The only drawback is that the esteemed Dr. Arrhenius thought that anthropogenic climate change would lead to increased crop yields and nicer weather, and so did nothing to raise alarm over the willy-nilly incineration of millions of yea...
