Regarding merging "Charles Keeling" and "Charles David Keeling" -- I think the articles should be merged together under "Charles David Keeling," which is the man's name as he used it. His colleagues called him "Dave" and he answered the phone "Dave Keeling", but he always signed his name "Charles David Keeling." 22.214.171.124 05:26, 14 June 2006 (UTC)jlancaster

The current article reads: "At Caltech he developed the first instrument to measure carbon dioxide in atmospheric samples". This is - with all due respect - pure bullshit! The first procedures to measure CO2 in the air were developed in Europe in or around 1812 and strongly improved by v. Pettenkofer in München in or around 1856. Kreutz used a set of 3 automatic sampling machines at Gießen, Germany at the agricultural research station and took no less than 60,000 data records around 1940. See the publications of the late Ernst-Georg Beck for details and an overview of the true history of CO2-measurements. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:20, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
