    Excerpt from Notices of the Proceedings at the Meetings of the Members of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, Vol. 12: With Abstracts of the Discourses Delivered at the Evening Meetings; 1887-1889, With an Index to Volumes I. To XII

    From human history we know that for several thousand years the sun has been giving heat and light to the earth as at present, possibly with some considerable ¿uctuations, and possibly with some not very small progressive variation. The records of agriculture, and the natural history of plants and animals within the time of human history, abound with evidence that there has been no exceedingly great change in the intensity of the sun's heat and light within the last three thousand years; but for all that, there may have been variations of quite as much as 5 or 10'per cent., as we may judge by considering that the intensity of the solar radiation to the earth is 6 - 5 per cent. Greater in January than in July; and neither at the equator nor in the northern or southern hemispheres has this differ ence been discovered by experience or general observation of any kind. But as for the mere age of the sun, irrespective of the question of uniformity, we have proof Of something vastly more than three thousand years in geological history, with its irrefragable evidence of continuity of life on the earth in time past for tens of thousands, and probably for millions of years.
