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! "...it is only unprecedented to the existing untaught generation!"

Some guy in 1875 writes a letter to the London Times ? Which asserts that the flooding in 1875 is no different from the flooding in ????

Is this relevant to the science of climate change?

In a word... no. You are posting an irrelevant, non-scientific anecdote. Value - pretty much stuff-all.

What science of climate change - is that like creationism and the science of flat earth? what are you talking about?

Back in 1875, the scientific illiterates were claiming that "the seasons have altered"; and that "agriculture and cultivation have done it" while today you call it climate change and you blame CO2 - no difference.

And in both cases, the scientific illiterates are using the same word: "Unprecedented."

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

At least in 1875 there was no fraud attached to this kind of nonsense.

" "the seasons have altered"; and that "agriculture and cultivation have done it" while today you call it climate change and you blame CO2 - no difference."

You have made your opinion clear enough. That it is OPINION is also clear. You can't back it with facts and your problem is being compounded every year as the trend continues, and the escalator continues to rise.

There is a sort of invincible idiocy in the certainty of denialists with little or no scientific background or knowledge, that they are smarter and more accurate in their interpretation of the scientific data than the people who study climate as a profession.

I can't really top that. It is like the Abbott & Costello sketch "who's on first". It'd be hilarious if it wasn't the future of our civilization on the line.
