Laugh all you want at my expense if this is ready common theory.

The poles are the slowest moving part of the globe, right? The equator speeds by and builds up a sort of "friction" related heat.

There are quite a few theories that the Earth is hollow.

There are also theories that the poles will shift again as the earth passes the galactic equator over the next 30+ years or so.

What is it rubbing against?

The planet is a sphere; try an experiment.

Spin a bowling ball, feel the pole at the axis of spin. (the one not touching the ground since that one wouldn't accurately represent the earth spinning in 3d space) And then feel a part on the equator (after its finished spinning)

How do I make the outside of the bowling ball travel at 1000 miles per hour? That's about how fast the surface of the Earth is moving near the equator, so to generate the same friction I need about the same speed at the surface of the bowling ball, right?

I think he may mean that the earths core rotates within the mantle.

That makes more sense.

Assuming he didn't mean the inner core's friction against the crust and my postulate isn't flawed in that sense. Friction against what?
