5- An interview with ‘the father of global warming’
On August 8th, 1975, Science published a paper by AAAS fellow Wallace S. Broecker titled “Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?” in which he argued that the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide occurring because of the burning of fossil fuels would result in higher global temperatures. He was  recently interviewed about how warming has progressed since his ground-breaking paper, and what can or should be done about it.
