Mild Winters Destined to be Universal. So Says Mr. Grant Allen




Publications abstracted:

Grant Allen Longman's Magazine


Climatology, Futurism, Romanticism

    Exclaims that the 'hastening' of the planet's natural gradual warming 'ought not to be beyond the resources of an ever-expanding science. We have, it seems, only to doff the ice-cap worn at both ends of our planet to make mild winters universal. Our high explosives may yet come in handy for this purpose [...]. Here is a prospect of adventure to a world getting almost afraid of finding no more chance of it. Polar exploration, submarine exploration, applied seismology, and the abolition of winter rigours—what a vista of romance!'.
