A University of Toronto professor says a better understanding of the Earth's climate requires a better understanding of the interaction between the planet's geophysical processes and the dynamics of the Solar System as a whole.
In an article published in Dec. 18 issue of Nature magazine, U of T physicist Jerry Mitrovica and Allessandro Forte of the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris use numerical simulations to show the connection between Earth's changing shape and the gravitational effects of other bodies in the Solar System, particularly Jupiter and Saturn.
"We're showing for the first time that changes in the Earth's shape, when coupled with the gravitational effects from other planets, can produce large changes in the Earth's climate," Mitrovica says.
The evolution of the Earth's precession and obliquity are known to have a long-term impact on climate. Precession refers to the slow movement of the rotation axis in a 26,000-year cycle and obliquity, which varies with a 40,000-year cycle, refers to the tilt of the Earth's axis. As the precession and obliquity change, climate is directly affected because the pattern of the sunshine that falls on the Earth has been altered.

We better go buy some more kidney beans to make Chili tomorrow. Sounds like we need to get accustomed to the heat. If things go sour, having the makings for Chili will keep the wife's mind off of the disaster, she will be so busy complaining of my gas that she won't notice the big mushrooms growing all over the country.
I wonder where the original idea for the shape of the dragon and it's facial details came from. How long were people drawing that likeness?

Taking to account, that Virgo is about to give birth to Jupiter the god planet, the water breaking before delivery suggests a flood taking place. The Great American Eclipse crossed the Madrid faultline. Madrid Capitol of Spain, means .water channel. Interesting times are coming.

I am still not sold on the Nibiru angle for this one though. Doesn't mean God can't allow it or make it happen or what not, but honestly, if there was something like that hiding out there, wouldn't it have been visible on the day of the eclipse?
