Thomas Jefferson on Climate Change

Email Print

Wrote Jefferson in 1804:

A change in our climate is taking place very surely. Both heat and cold are becoming moderate within the memory of even the middle-aged, and snows are less frequent and less deep.

(Thanks to Travis Holte)

UPDATE Jefferson in 1809:

Snow is nearly a thing of the past.
