Global warming is the most pressing symptom that human beings are not even remotely good stewards of their only home, planet Earth. It is not as though we have only recently come on the science, the data, the obvious changes in weather. In 1896 the Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius calculated the effect of a doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide to be an increase in surface temperatures of 5–6 degrees Celsius. Scientists in the oil industry, specifically Exxon (now Exxon Mobil) wrote memos to their corporate chieftains in 1977 stating that burning fossil fuels, coal, oil, and natural gas, were contributing to an increase in the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and increase the average temperature of the earth’s atmosphere.
