Eyes to the Sky

Eunice Newton Foote at the Dawn of Climate Science and Women's Rights

A young-adult biography-in-verse based on the real life and achievements of Eunice Newton Foote, who first calculated the negative impact of excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in 1856. Foote’s work was undercut by the scientific establishment and almost forgotten entirely.
