…The New York Times for 28 April 1959, referring to the annual meeting of the National  Academy of Sciences, held in Washington, D.C., reported that, “Members of the academy were told that within 40 years the amount of carbon dioxide in the air may have increased from 25% to 30% above the level at the time when man began using fuels. The  effect on climate allegedly might be radical. The matter was discussed by Dr. Bert Bolin of the University of Stockholm.”
