In brief: a long time, and most likely no.

Clive Thompson has written engagingly about the 19th century scientists 
— Joseph Fourier (1768-1830), Eunice Newton Foote (1819-1888), John 
Tyndall (1820-1893), Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927), Arvid Högbom 
(1857-1940), and Samuel Pierpont Langley (1834-1906) — whose work in 
aggregate pieced together the essential facts about CO2-induced global 
warming. [1]
