A lot of folks are out there searching for answers about a possible polar shift at hand that will bring many cataclysmic events, along with various ways to detect whether or not the Earth’s axis has shifted or not, and how severe and/or negative the effect will be for us humans as the polar ice melts, and so on.
There are many things that can cause the Earth’s axis to shift, but minor tilts or changes that causes the Earth to wobble a tiny bit differently, is not a problem, as negligible changes happen all throughout the year, every year, without much concern. I will say this, though, as I’m a little concerned about the effects that the melting of our planet’s polar ice caps may have, as simple math will dictate a massive change in the way the weight is distributed on this planet, could very well cause a shift in the Earth’s axis, which can definitely affect weather and much more, depending on the severity of the shift and whatnot.
I’ll give you a few examples of what I’d consider negligible amounts of change for the Earth’s Axis, below:
A couple years ago, the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Japan shortened Earth’s day by just over one-millionth of a second (1.8 microseconds to be exact), according to NASA. It also shifted the Earth’s axis by about 6.5 inches. The reason why I consider that to be a small amount, is because a microsecond equals one millionth of a second. You can read about several examples online, such as the one that happened 3 years ago, which was the massive earthquake that struck Chile. The magnitude 9.1 earthquake in 2004 that generated a killer tsunami in the Indian Ocean, supposedly shortened the length of days by 6.8 microseconds. One could easily say that all of these events add up, but it also works the other way around, as certain shifts of mass can also lengthen days, in a microscopic sort of way, as well. I’m not going to list all of the events, such as earthquakes that have had a minuscule effect on Earth’s axis, as this planet has been shaking and quaking for quite a long while, to say the least!
Without any overly complicated data or extra technology involved, as many of you know, the Earth’s axis tilt, which is roughly 23.4 degrees +/-, is the reason for the seasons on Earth. …So any type of major shift or a bunch of minor ones that accumulate over time, will definitely have a major impact on this planet’s weather and seismic activity, no matter what some people may try to tell ya! I don’t know about you, but there seems to be less transitional periods between Summer time and Winter time, than it used to be. Basically, what I’m saying is, there seemed to be longer Spring & Fall times, in the past – at least where I live. Then again, the weather changes like our moods and last year’s winter was rather mild in my area, but it was a little colder this year, so go figure…
Now, what about all of this polar ice that continues to melt? It seems that this major event has been getting swept under the rug for the last couple of decades. I’ve even read in the past, how a lot of polar imagery has been censored by the government, but I don’t know how true that claim is. However, after reading my post about Antarctica (Lake Vostok – Mystery at the Center of Antarctica), for example, there may be exposure to some of those cool alien underground facilities or hidden bunkers down there, but who knows… right? But in all seriousness, “sea ice is always melting near one pole while growing around the other, but the overall trend year to year (at least the last several years) is dramatically less ice in the Arctic and slightly more in the Antarctic.” You can read more about that on an article entitled “Antarctic Sea Ice Growth Pales In Comparison To Arctic Losses,” which you can find, here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/10/antarctic-sea-ice_n_1955662.html
I once wrote a web page that was a parody about the polar shift, and it involved a humorous weight displacement theory along with a proportional imbalance from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere, that could cause a polar shift. Well, when you factor in all the weight we are losing up top via the melting of ice, this theory may hold true after all. Within that post, though, I was comparing overweight Americans getting balanced out by large mammals from Africa, etc., as a joke; ha!
At any rate, changes to the Earth’s rotation are not only caused by massive earthquakes, as supposedly larger effects are seen with oceanic currents and atmospheric winds, but lets not leave out my concern (among many others) about the changes brought about by the melting of polar ice along with the mass redistributions in the mantle. Also, in addition to this, we should all know that a major impact from a comet or a large asteroid would also affect the tilt of Earth’s axis, but why add to the doom & gloom chatter, eh?
Of course, the gravitational pull of other celestial bodies could also impact our axis and cause an ongoing shift that disrupts our weather, rotation, etc.
If any Planet X/Nibiru Guru wanna-bes land on this post, please try to not wet your self in the comment field while typing about all the swill & slop you have read on conspiracy theorist-type websites and/or how Planet X is the cause for every problem on Earth and/or how hordes of Barbarians from Planet Ogo are coming soon to take over the Hollow Earth and the new leader will rise from the south pole and cast wrath upon thee; blah, blah… LOL!
Anyway, I would type more, but since this is one of those subjects that is better left for the comment field, I’ll leave it at that. I must remind you, though, regardless of this crazed, shifted notion by way of the precarious Earth’s axis, if the melting of the ice caps truly gets out of hand, we might find a lot of flooding issues and water contamination going on, so use some common sense and think of ways to filtrate, purify and store clean drinking water, if ya get my drift … or was that shift? Ha!
