A 14 August 1912 article from a New Zealand newspaper has predicted the future. It contains a brief story about how burning coal might produce future warming by adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. The article was published in three New Zealand newspapers Тhe Rodney and Otamatea Times, Waitemata and Kaiparа Gazette.

1912 Newspaper Article Predicted The Future

Facebook page “Sustainable Business Network NZ” posted a photograph of a clipping from the 14 August 1912 edition of the above three newspapers titled as “Coal Consumption Affecting Climate”.

“The furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considered in a few centuries.”
