    The person crediting for first discovering greenhouse gases is a French physicist named Joseph Fourier. In 1824, Fourier carefully examined data and research about the Earth’s energy and radiation from the Earth. He deduced that the heat from the sun is not sufficient enough to maintain Earth at such warm temperatures without some sort of help. He then proposed that our world has some sort of insulating gases that trap and absorb the heat. As the years went on, scientists have fine tuned his notion into the notion of greenhouse gases that we all know today.
