Climate Quote for the Day

“Many people, relying on their memories alone, insist that our climates are now very different from what they used to be. Their fathers made similar statements about the climates of earlier times, as did also their father’s fathers, as their several writings show, and so on through the ages; and the bulk of this testimony is to the effect that our climates are getting worse–evidence perhaps that flesh has always been heir to ills.”
       --- W. J. Humphreys, 1920

William Jackson Humphreys was a noted meteorologist and atmospheric physicist
