Let's correct the Earth!
On three, everyone lean to your left.
One. . . . .two. . . . .
Don't be doing something you'll later regret.
Leaning to the left might cause you to have an allergic reaction and break out in hives all over your body.

Sometime since 2004 I posted a reply along the lines of the Earth Axis tilt...
we are all aware that the Earth's Axis tilt is presently around 23.5 degrees, a condition which causes our annual seasons to occur.
here is an obscure mental exercise about the axis tilt...
the normal 23.5 degree tilt is also equivalent to being 66.5 degrees from the Perpendicular of 90 °
If the Earth tilt was somehow altered (from asteroid hit, 10.0 Earthquake, plate shift...) to a new axis tilt of 23.4°....that tiny .1 degree difference would mathematically put the tilt at 66.6 off the Perpendicular (which is the anti-christ number)...
Wow ~~ that would be very weird, huh
The data do not indicate whether the recent climate changes are man-made, but Chen personally believes the drastic shift in the pole has to be the result of human activities. Meanwhile Ivins thinks he will be able to tease man-made climate change from the data in another six months or so. Given that polar motion and climate variability seem to be inextricably linked, scientists can look at historical records of the pole’s motion (which date back to well before the advent of GPS and the GRACE satellite) and see changes in Earth’s climate. If those changes are less dramatic than the ones we see today, Ivins says, then scientists could say that global warming has a controlling influence on Earth’s poles.

It's because they keep upping the Tip percentage when you go to a restaurant. It's effecting the whole world.

This very very slight shift in axial tilt means than the sun will now rise, as seen from your front window, in the same place it previously appeared to rise as seen from 10ft in front of your front window .....

This and sea level rise are debunked to me if true.

Updated NASA Data: Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat
Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.
In late 2012, however, polar ice dramatically rebounded and quickly surpassed the post-1979 average. Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean.
Now, in May 2015, the updated NASA data show polar sea ice is approximately 5 percent above the post-1979 average.
I would also postulate it depends on who is funding the study.
Shrinking ice sheets
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Data from NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment show Greenland lost 150 to 250 cubic kilometers (36 to 60 cubic miles) of ice per year between 2002 and 2006, while Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005.
Declining Arctic sea ice
Both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice has declined rapidly over the last several decades.

Without admittedly reading the link, I have to ask--how does ice melting into water reduce mass?
Is he trying to say that the melt water spreads out instead of being in a hunk of centralized ice mass, and that's the problem? Even still, that's not reduced mass, just redistributed mass.

The climate is changing because the magnetic north has shifted 40 degrees, now knocking on Siberias door. The red dwarf star system entering our solar system will preturb our normal rotations, our satellites, and will warrant calm and vigilance in dealing with what is to com in July.
Keep your family safe.
Blessings & peace to your days ahead.
