At https://www.yahoo.com/news/earth-knocked-off-axis-over-194130839.html … since 1980 earth’s poles have drifted by about 13 feet. Not a great deal then – unless you believe the position of the poles are immutable. The poles are where the planet’s surface interacts with its axis of rotation – the invisible line running through the mass of the earth, which it spins around. The claim is the geographic location of the poles are not fixed – and they can move. The big question is what causes them to move.
A study back in 2021 claimed the axis shifted dramatically in 1995, speeding the movement of the poles and changing its direction. Looking for a cause, or taking advantage of the lack of knowledge on the subject, climate scientists, and those from other disciplines that might have sold their souls, have homed in on melting glaciers. Surendra Adhikai, at NASA, spoke about the phenomenon – but he was not involved in the study. On average, over thousands of years, earth’s axis points in the direction of the star, Polaris. However, that was not always so we are informed. The axis can wobble around and point at another star, or region of space. Somewhat later it will always return to point towards Polaris. In this way they are able not to unduly interfere or ruffle the consensus view that the poles are stable and have not moved to any degree within the historical past. The theory is that a change in weight near the poles can tip it over, slightly, to the right or the left. The shift in weight causes the top’s centre of mass and axis of rotation, to lean over to one side, moving the position of the poles. The shift in weight creates a wobble at the axis of rotation. So, the story continues, when climate change caused a large melt in glaciers in the polar regions, redistributing the water, the weight of that shift caused the poles to wobble, and this is why there is a difference of 13 feet. This, straightaway ignores earthquakes that are known to have moved the poles on occasion, in fairly recent years – in Indonesia and Chile. However, they then cloud the issue entirely by casting a wagging finger at the recent movement of the north magnetic pole. This is of course quite different as the magnetic pole is a feature of the dipole and cannot be affected by melting glaciers. Electro-magnetic forces affect the magnetic poles – and these have a connection with the Sun. In fact, what causes the magnetic poles to shift is a scientific unknown – and very little research has been done. Why did the authors conflate two entirely different processes? Only they know that. It was enough to get the media excited as it has been reported on several occasions that the magnetic north pole is moving towards Siberia from the Canadian side of the polar region. This probably happens on numerous occasions but scientists, in the past, have been notoriously reluctant to research electro-magnetic forces as it opens a can of worms they do not wish to enter. The Russians, strangely, have done a lot of work in this area of science, but their work is mostly ignored by the big guns in the West. Recently, research in Israel has focussed on a magnetic anomaly in the Iron Age Levant, which may explain features of the Biblical Ezekiel story. The Japanese have also been researching what are known as Miyake events – unexplainable inputs into the earth’s atmosphere that appear to coincide with electro-magnetic pulses. Introducing climate science and global warming into the storyline is a ruse to muddy the waters, and stir them up. It would not be so bad if glaciers in polar regions really were melting. All we have had is a decline in sea ice levels – which are now going up again. The Greenland and Antarctic ice caps have not melted but are actually growing at present. All there has been is some melting of the West Antarctic peninsular ice cap as a result of a succession of El Nino events channelling warm water from the tropical Pacific into the Indian and Atlantic oceans. Now we are in La Nina mode the peninsular is not being pummelled with warm water below sea level – with the obvious result. Melting has come to a stop.
There are however good reasons why the earth might wobble at the axis of rotation but limited research on the subject has been done. One source people might like to explore is Paul Dunbavin’s books – available via Amazon.
