The previous edition of this newsletter (December 2018) discussed climate change and humanity’s emission of gases causing this problem. The article used the term radiator gases, rather than

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, humanity's pollution has installed an additional 2,000 billion tonnes of gas molecules in our atmosphere1. These molecules, or radiator gases (RGs) are emitting infrared radiation, day and night, and it is the heat from this radiation that is warming our planet.
