We recall an almost visionary, but largely forgotten paper on biomass burning aerosols and climate, which dates back to the 19th century but anticipates much of the current perspective. Here we summarize the main points of the paper and embed it into the context of the current scientific discussion. This short paper accompanies an English translation and edition of the original article (which was published in German) in this issue.

Wir möchten einen beinahe visionären Artikel über Biomassenverbrennungs-Aerosole und Klima in Erinnerung rufen, der im 19. Jahrhundert erschienen ist, aber viele Aspekte der heutigen Diskussion vorweg nimmt. Wir fassen die wichtigsten Punkte des Artikels zusammen und beleuchten sie vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Diskussion. Dieser kurze Artikel begleitet eine englische Übersetzung und Bearbeitung des in Deutsch erschienenen Originalartikels.
