From a letter to The Times in 1875 by a climate skeptic - via Tom Nelson:

...As of 1875, there have been floods in France, Italy, America, Africa, India, Australia, Great Britain, etc; people believe that "the seasons have altered"; "agriculture and cultivation have done it".

The 1875 skeptic writes: "The mistake is thinking that such a flood is unprecedented, as it is only unprecedented to the existing untaught generation"...

Wow! " is only unprecedented to the existing untaught generation!"
