The article offers information about a Nobel Prize winner. He was born in 1859 in Vik, Sweden. He entered the University of Uppsala in 1876, studying mathematics, chemistry and physics. He developed a theory to explain the ice ages and was the first to speculate that changes in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere could substantially alter its surface temperature through the greenhouse effect.
