Timeline

1889 - At the age of merely 2 years old, Thomas was alive when on February 22nd, President Cleveland signed a bill allowing North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Washington to become states.

1896 - Thomas was merely 9 years old when in April, the first study on global warming due to CO2 - carbon dioxide - in the atmosphere was published by Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius.

His conclusions have been extensively tested in the ensuing 100+ years and are still seen to hold true.
