Hmm, the first deep-sea cores I am aware of were the one taken by  
Kullenberg on the Albatross expedition in the late 40's (and BTW,  
those cores provided the first evidence that continental drift caused  
the mid-oceanic ridges to be younger than the periphery, long before  
American scientists accepted the hypothesis based on magnetism).

What Svante Arrhenius predicted was that the greenhouse effect made  
our planet inhabitable, and that the burning of fossil fuels might  
help to some little degree with postponing the onset of the next Ice  
Age. And speaking of that, do we still know how and why ice ages  
start? Can we predict when it will return?
