Abstract

This review traces the theory as far back as 1827, highlighting new directions and significant advances over that time. Four main themes can be discerned : 1) certain radiatively active gases are responsible for warming the planet| 2) that humans can inadvertently influence this warming| 3) climate models are designed to permit prediction of the climatic changes in the atmospheric loadings of these gases but they have not yet achieved this goal of prediction| and 4) many scenarios of changes, and especially of impact, are premised on relatively weak analysis
