Arrhenius, Angström and Planck
Svante Arrhenius (1859–1927), Swedish scientist was the first to suggest (in 1896) that a doubling of the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere would lead to an increase of 5–6 °C.
This theory of CO2 climate warming caught on briefly, but then came to a quick end in 1900 when Knut Angström published his 1900 paper. This pretty much ended the discussion of CO2 warming over the next 70 + years.
Max Planck (1858–1947), German scientist was the first to prove the relationship between radiation intensity and wavelength in his paper published in 1900. This Planck function will be the key to showing why CO2 has no role in climate-change.
