Synopsis

The theory of man-made climate change is a recent conspiracy, right? Wrong! It is the result of a series of unrelated facts discovered over a century and a half. It begins in the middle of the nineteenth century with an amateur geologist trying to understand how ice ages came about and ends with the study of oceans and polar ice caps that continues to this day.

Here is the story of those diverse and unrelated discoveries and the men and teams that made them. Whatever the future holds for the human race we all owe a debt of gratitude to the persistence of the men and women from numerous scientific and engineering disciplines that have shown us how our way of life impacts the climate of our planet.
