The above from ‘earthsky.org.
OK. This is but 13′ in 42-years. OK. But, do we know how much it has shifted say over the last 250-years. We know the axis has indeed shifted. We even know that the North & South Poles have traded places more than once.
This study focuses on how climate change has caused the axis to shift.
BUT, the corollary is equal true. A shift in axis will result in climate change!
Think about it. A shift in axis will cause parts of the Earth to warm up or cool down.
And that is just a shift in the axis. We do NOT have a record of how the axis has shifted. Just know that it must have — & has.
I have also repeatedly pointed out that we have NO CLUE, whatsoever, as to how much the Earth’s orbit has changed over the last million years (& I don’t need to go any further back).
A change in orbit will MOST certainly impact climate.
That has always been my point. My only point. I appreciate, fully, that we are seeing Climate Change. But, I want to know, for sure, for sure, what other factors, way, way beyond humans might have been at play.
Wouldn’t you like to know.
All I am advocating is that we do NOT have ALL the facts.
Peace. And as I always like to say: “I would really like some Global Warming up here is still chilly New Hampshire“.
