Eunice Newton Foote was the first woman to publish in a physics journal. Her article, titled “Circumstances Affecting the Heat of Sun’s Rays,” laid the foundation for the discovery of the greenhouse effect. This groundbreaking paper, written more than 150 years ago, drew a direct link between carbon dioxide and the warming of our climate, and helped define climate science as we know it. Today, on her 204th birthday, we’re honoring her achievements with a Doodle on the Google homepage.

We’re also celebrating the work of six women walking in Eunice’s footsteps and making important contributions to our understanding of climate change. With funding and support from Google.org, these innovators are working to educate the public, building solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change and advocating for policies that will help protect our planet.
