1970. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF THE TEXT OF A 1969 PRESENTATION BY KEELING AT A SYMPOSIUM ON ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION. In the presentation he illustrates in some detail the risks of increasing carbon dioxide, but also recognizes the different views on the issue prevalent at that time.
Charles David Keeling was an American scientist whose recording of the increase of carbon dioxide at the Mauna Loa Observatory brought attention to the anthropogenic contribution to the "greenhouse effect" and global warming. His discovery of the increasing level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, now known as the Keeling Curve, transformed scientific understanding of humanity’s relationship with the earth. A graph of the Keeling Curve is inscribed on a wall at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington as one of the great achievements of modern science. Item #1535
