Thomas Jefferson Wrote About Global Warming

By

This is an article which appeared in Newsmax today.  I'll give you the link. 

Sometimes I am concerned they will not work because I get these articles in email.  If you have a problem with the link let me know.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"Thomas Jefferson wrote about global warming back in the early 19th century,
before there were any emissions from cars, coal-fired power plants, and other
developments of the Industrial Age.

 

In a letter to Philadelphia physician and professor Nathaniel Chapman dated
Dec. 11, 1809, nine months after he left the presidency, Jefferson wrote: “The
change which has taken place in our climate is one of those facts which all men
of years are sensible of and yet none can prove by regular evidence. They can
only appeal to each other’s general observation for the fact."

The rest of the article reprints his facts concerning tracking of snow and how long it lasted over a period of years.

  • It would seem that even in the time of Jefferson, global warming was a topic of conversation.

John, History repeats itself.  This ole world has been revolving for billions of years.  It has gone through many drastic climate swings.  We went from a tropical enviornment to an ice age, then we warmed up again.

Bonnie,

Wow, and this even pre-dates Al Gore, our factories, and all the cars. They hadn't even discovered oil yet. :)
