Climate alarmists were alive and well in the mid-19th century, too

Had this forwarded to me via e-mail:

This Day in Delaware History:

1846: The Philadelphia newspaper Keystone blamed the repeated rains in Wilmington and along the East Coast on the telegraph wires that had been strung up recently.

1876: At the height of the strawberry season around Middletown, shipments on the Delaware Railroad amounted to 60 car loads a day and sold around town for 8 cents a quart.

1963: The Army dock at Fort Miles, Lewes was totally destroyed by fire.

1991: President George H. W. Bush visited Seaford to speak before the James H. Groves Adult High School commencement.

Wonder if some great-whatever of Al Gore ran that paper ...?
