A DISCOURSE ON METEORS
The Air is divided into two Parts; That which is habitable by Animals, and That above: This last has no limits we know of: The first is contained in that Sphere of Vapours which ascend with a sensible Heat out of the Earth, that is, as much as the Sun cherishes with his Heat, and renders fit for the Life of Animals.
This therefore is comparatively hot, the rest comparatively cold, which the Snows and cold Winds about the highest mountains testify.
