    The first scientist to theorize the greenhouse effect was Joseph Fourier in 1824. He proposed that gases in the atmosphere could trap heat from the sun, although it was not experimented on and proven until 1856 by John Tyndall, who proved that gases from burning materials such as wood and coal, were responsible for trapping heat in the atmosphere.
