Interesting that HDT mentions the amelioration of the climate here, in 1852! Snow shoes left unused for generations in old garrets. Dusty and forgotten. I like the use of the word garret too as I always preferred it to loft or attic. But he’s talking here about climate change. In 1852! Quite incredible that it is recognisable this long ago, and possibly longer. I’ll need to share this with DC.
I wonder when people first started noticing this and recording it. Would make an interesting article. It’s an unfortunate problem that climate denial is a thing. That’s a lot of horseshit to me, climate change is critical. A lot of people will deny the science, but you cannot deny what you can see with your own eyes. Some of it isn’t even science, its geography. I’ve seen a change in weather in my lifetime, how much more in my children’s? No, it’s serious and I shall have to put the history of climate change into my other notebook.
