Global warming' birthday

United States
Omaha World Herald

The month of August marks the 35th anniversary of the use of the term "global warming" in scientific circles.
On Aug. 8, 1975, Science magazine published the article "Climate Change: Are we on the Brink of a Pronounced Global warming" by New Jersey geochemist Wally Broecker.
In that, Broecker predicted the rate and amount of temperature increase that is occurring. A researcher and instructor at Columbia University in New Jersey, Broecker avoids the political side of the issue.
This spring, seeing that the Science article's 35th anniversary was approaching, Broecker offered $250 to any student who could find an earlier reference. Postgraduate student David McGee found a 1957 mention of the possibility of "wide scale global warming" in an editorial of the Hammond Times of Indiana.
