Theory of the Greenhouse Effect, or the Enhanced greenhouse effect

the Theory of the Greenhouse Effect

Not found on Wikipedia

Google Scholar
The page "Enhanced greenhouse effect" does not exist.

Not even a redirect.

Google scholar shows over 6000 papers that use the term.

boreal cold-season (Oct-Mar)

"Boreal" when used in climate research, or scientific papers on climate, means Northern Hemisphere.

So when you see boreal cold-season (Oct-Mar) it means the Northern Hemisphere cold season.


GISS calls it the Northern Hemisphere cold season.

Austral winter, Austral spring, Austral summer

In science the term used for the Southern Hemisphere (SH) is "Austral", as in "Austral winter".  citation

"boreal winter" (or "boreal spring" or summer or fall), is shorthand for "Northern Hemisphere winter". (NH winter)

You will not find any of this information on Wikipedia.

Global Warming Theory found on Wikipedia! Long since deleted.

In 2004 Global Warming Theory (otherwise knows as the greenhouse gas theory, AGW, the CO2 theory, or the enhanced greenhouse theory of climate change) actually existed on Wikipedia.

It seems several times, in 2004 especially, there were long edit wars and of course WC was involved, to remove any mention of theory from the global warming page.  Even the greenhouse theory was removed.  Even  the article about the originator of the theory, Arrhenius, had the word theory removed.

In 1896 he published a long memoir “On the Influence of Carbonic Acid in the Air Upon the Temperature of the Ground,” in which he developed a theory for the explanation of the glacial periods and other great climatic changes, based on the ability of carbon dioxide to absorb the infrared radiation emitted from the earth’s surface. Although the theory was based on thorough calculations, it won no recognition from geologists. In 1898 Arrhenius wrote a remarkable paper on the action of cosmic influence on physiological processes.

Svante August Arrhenius

Fixedreference, a web site with copies of Wikipedia fixed in time, has a copy of the Global Warming article before the word theory was removed from it.

Of course something real like a scientific report
that includes 
A Program for Action 

It doesn't have an article on Wikipedia. 
It doesn't even show up as a source on any article.
