1896 - Rosie was merely 15 years old when in April, the first study on global warming due to CO2 - carbon dioxide - in the atmosphere was published by Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius.

His conclusions have been extensively tested in the ensuing 100+ years and are still seen to hold true.

It was the first time in the modern era that an Asian power showed its dominance over a European power.
