Read about Eunice Foote—"The Female Scientist Who Discovered the Basics of Climate Science—and Was Forgotten By History”. She predicted the effect of greenhouse gases before the man who gets the credit. Two hundred and two years ago, on July 17, 1819, Eunice Foote was born. Thirty-some years later, the amateur climate scientist made the remarkable discovery that when sunlight shines on carbon dioxide in a closed container—our atmosphere, for example—heat builds up inside. The man who usually gets credit discovered the effect 3 years later. https://www.audubon.org/news/the-female-scientist-who-discovered-basics-climate-science-and-was-forgotten
