Posted on 26 May 2012 by dana1981
Via Climate Crocks, another entry from Richard Alley's YouTube series of short videos on 'how to talk to an ostrich', based on “Earth: the Operator’s Manual”. This entry discusses how some of the basic atmospheric physics and behind the climate science of human-caused global warming was discovered by the United States Air Force in the 1950s. This piece of climate science history was also mentioned in John Mason's Two Centuries of Climate Science: part two - Hulburt to Keeling, 1931- 1965.
