ABSTRACT
The article recalls a report on the impact of global warming published in the 1957 issue of the "Sydney Morning Herald." The report revealed that Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius linked the increased levels of carbon dioxide and rising temperatures to the burning of fossil fuels. It mentioned that English engineer Guy Stewart Callendar reported an increase in the mean global temperature from 1890 to 1935. It also discussed the use of tree rings to measure future climate changes.
