Temperatures in southern Greenland soared to record levels that were even higher than those normally reached in midsummer. The official temperature of 61 degrees Fahrenheit, recorded in the southwest coastal town of Frederikshob, was the highest winter reading since record keeping began. That temperature was several degrees warmer than same-day high-temperature readings along the north coast of Africa, according to Danish meteorologists.
Scientists measuring the temperature and salinity of deep waters in the Southern Ocean warned that recent changes there could have a major impact on global climate. A multinational team of researchers says water at the ocean floor off Antarctica has cooled significantly and become less salty than it was 10 years ago. Expedition leader Steve Rintoul of Australia says the changes could mean the deep-water currents are slowing down. “Ocean circulation is a big influence on global climate, so it is critical that we understand why this is happening and why it is happening so quickly,” said Rintoul. The team released 19 free-floating buoys to measure future changes in currents, temperature and salinity.
Most Changes in Earth's Shape Are Due to Changes in Climate

well scientists say that every year the earth is tilted about a few millimeters more than it is supposed to i hop that helps

The overharvesting of sea life has virtually emptied the world's oceans. This removal of life is bound to have an effect, and I read long ago a theory that this would cause oceans to cool down somewhat.

The poles are changing. The north will become the south, This has happened in the earths history before. THe magnetic current will slow down, as it is now, stop, then turn around. during this time the field around the earth will die and we will loose its protection and die. n_n . hope that clears something up maybe

The reason is because it seems like the earth is experiencing an abnormal amount of friction. So, I am trying to either figure out what is causing it, or prove it wrong entirily.
. . . .
Is there something out there that has a pull on our planet that is causing it all? Just because we cant see it doesnt mean it is not there. But on the other hand, just because we cant see somthing doesnt mean it IS there.
