Father Of Global Warming (Prof. Arrhenius) Believed That Doubling CO2 Was A Good Thing – Flashback 1910: It ‘has been called to our attention by Prof. Arrhenius….that the present proportion of carbon dioxide in the air is about one part in 2,500. This would be about doubled, if it were not modified by vegetable life, by the consumption of the present known coal deposits, and it is stated that a doubling of the quantity in the atmosphere would more than double the rate of growth of plant life’

‘Electrified children’: 1911: The Father of global warming Prof. Svante Arrhenius thought exposing children to electricity would make them smarter – Rodney and Otamatea Times – October 25, 1911: ‘Electricity And The Growth of Children’: ‘At the suggestion of Prof. Svante Arrhenius, an experiment is being tried in Stockholm on fifty school children. The children are divided into two groups identical in point of health, height, weight, etc. and are placed in two class-rooms of the same dimensions, and similarly situated as regards exposure of light. In each class-room, exactly the same teaching is given, but one of the class-rooms is subjected to electricity, while the other is not. As yet, the experiment has not drawn to a close, but it is reported that the ‘electrified children’ have shown a greater mental and physical development than those in the other classroom.’

1910: Father of global warming Prof. Svante Arrhenius believed that doubling CO2 would be a good thing – North Otago Times – April 16, 1910: ‘As has been called to our attention by Prof. Arrhenius, the consumption of coal at present is returning to the stmosphere the carbon dioxide of which it was robbed when the deposits  of carbon were stored away in the coal beds during the carboniferious period…a doubling of the quantity in the atmosphere would more than double the rate of growth of plant.’
