Abstract

IN reply to Mr. O. Fisher's interesting letter of October 11 in this Journal under the above heading, it may be suggested that, though a state of stable thermal equilibrium exists now in the earth, it did not in the past, and that the earth has cooled down from a great initial temperature. We are, however, met with this difficulty, that the movements of the crust have been enormous in late geological times, as shown in the great mountain ranges of Tertiary date. This seems to be a fact entirely antagonistic to the suggested explanation.
