Climate change is the defining sustainability issue of our time. This chapter traces the early history of climate change to the present day where student ambassadors represent the American Chemical Society at the epicenter of international climate change negotiations. As early as 1827, Joseph Fourier proposed that gases in the atmosphere might be responsible for trapping energy from the sun, which is now described as the natural greenhouse effect. Svante Arrhenius hypothesized near the end of the 19th century that increases in the atmospheric concentration of CO2 could warm the planet, which we now call the enhanced greenhouse effect. The work of 20th Century scientists Roger Revelle, Dave Keeling, and others would lead to establishment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988. The IPCC First Assessment Report, completed in 1990, served as the basis for creation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at the 1992 ″Earth Summit″ in Rio de Janeiro. Each year, UNFCCC Parties gather for a Conference of Parties (COP) which serves as the convention′s ″supreme body″ with the ″highest decision-making authority.″ ACS student observers engage the global community at the annual COP to investigate and report on the science of climate change within a broad context of sustainability, economic equality, social justice, and the complexities of developing multilateral policy. The overarching purpose of the ACS student COP project and this book is to promote climate science literacy and education among college and university students, young adults, educators, policymakers, and the general public.
