Time magazine wrote about global warming 56 years ago


I was looking through an old Time magazine trying find an article about one of my favorite old pitchers, Hall of Famer Robin Evan Roberts, and there, on page 59, was an article about greenhouse gases and global warming.

The article appears in the science section in the magazine published May 28, 1956. So despite what some people say, the subject is not new; in fact, it was being discussed 56 years ago.
