The world’s climate has remained the same for thousands of years and will not change perceptibly for ages to come, said James H. Scarr, official forecaster of the United States Weather Bureau in New York at a luncheon of the Rotary Club yesterday in the Hotel McAlpin. “The climate may varey,” he stated, “by just as much as the speed of the earth’s revolutions around the sun and on its own axis may very. But the redwood trees in the West, one of them 4,000 years old, prove that since the dawn of history there has been no perceptible change in climatic conditions.”
