6. Did new technologies help to demonstrate global warming?

Between 1975-1980 science began to have new tools and knowledge and more advanced techniques to analyze the complex phenomenon of climate change. Even when the Internet did not exist at that time, there were already artificial satellites, global networks to track wind, precipitation and currents, as well as new generation computers to build climate models. So that science could corroborate with greater rigor what has been proclaimed for a long time, a possible climate change with dramatic consequences. Public opinion began to know the problem warned by environmental groups, governments raised the problem and initiated international agreements pushed by the increasingly disturbing results that scientists were developing.

Pioneers of Climate Change

At all times and in all sciences, there have always been visionaries, those people who anticipate situations long before other persons can glimpse them. This is the case of Jean-Baptiste Joseph Fourier (1768-1830), a French mathematician and physicist, who in 1824 calculated that an object the size of the Earth and with a similar distance from the sun, it should be much colder to what our planet is really like. He affirmed that it was maintained with a temperate climate because the atmosphere retains the heat as if it were under glass. Thus, Fourier has the honor of being the first to use the greenhouse analogy…

Climate change, what is it and what are its causes?

Anthropogenic climate change is the variation of climate status attributed to human activity that alters the composition of the atmosphere and has consequences on the entire planet. The main cause of climate change is global warming caused by emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), of anthropogenic origin, among which CO2 is the most frequent. The sources responsible for these emissions are the burning of fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas, used mainly in industry and transport.
