    Svante Arrhenius, a Swedish scientist, was initially studying the the relations between CO2 and the previous Ice Ages when he developed the first theory of anthropogenic climate change. Through his research, Arrhenius observed the infrared absorption capabilities of water vapor and CO2 in the atmosphere. He found that due to their natural “greenhouse” effect, the Earth’s temperature was maintained at a certain level. He then theorized that human burning of fossil fuels could contribute to rising temperatures by increasing CO2 concentrations in the air.
