Is the Earth’s axis wobbling?
Since 1899, the Earth’s axis of spin has shifted about 34 feet (10.5 meters). Now, research quantifies the reasons why and finds that a third is due to melting ice and rising sea levels, particularly in Greenland — placing the blame on the doorstep of anthropogenic climate change.
When was the last time the Earth wobbles on its axis?
The last time a tilt of 12 degrees was recorded was about 84 million years ago when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, scientists claim. A similar tilt is currently underway on Earth, caused as a direct consequence of climate change, a study from April found. Now, there is evidence of Earth’s axis movement in the past.
When did the Earth last wobble on its axis?
The Earth had its shortest ever day this summer, thanks to a wobble in its axis which meant it completed a single spin in a fraction of a second less than 24 hours. June 29 was 1.59 milliseconds shorter than 86,400 seconds, or exactly 24 hours, according to the website timeanddate.com.
