|History||In the 1820s Joseph Fourier calculated that the surface of the earth was considerably warmer than one would expect for an object of its size, at its distance from the Sun assuming incoming solar radiation was the only source of warming. Fourier considered a number of possible explanations including that the Earth’s atmosphere might act as an insulator of some kind which became known as the Greenhouse effect.||The history of the scientific discovery of climate change began in the early 19th century when ice ages and other natural changes in paleoclimate were first suspected and the natural greenhouse effect first identified.|
