Format: Perfect Paperback
A fascinating read on a topic of world concern today, Global Warming, published in 1810 by the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in New Haven, CT. Noah Webster, yes, "The" Noah Webster from America's First Dictionary fame, wrote in 1799 "On the supposed Change of the Temperature of Winter." He remarks on the Hebrew scriptures written as early as the days of Moses and David in Judea that mention snow, hail, ice and frost as common in those ages, where no such thing is now known. Samuel Williams, best remembered in Vermont for his "Natural and Civil History of Vermont," the earliest full-length history of the state, first published in 1794 that he supposes with many others, that passages in Job mention of snow, hail, ice and frost. These are but a couple examples of the scale of references quoted by others on the subject of climate change that Webster includes as the evidence which led them to the belief in warming temperatures. The work is well annotated as a dissertation would naturally be. A Supplementary Remarks section written and read before the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1806 is included in the work. As to Webster's conclusions, you have to wait until you read it because I am not giving it away here.
