“Земная ось смещается из-за глобального потепления,” reads the headline on Russian website. (The Earth’s axis is changing due to global warming)
“An increase in the average annual temperature on Earth affects many processes on the planet, including the tilt of the axis.
Our planet wanders in an elliptical orbit around the Sun, rotating at a slight tilt. Due to the tilt of the earth’s axis, the seasons change on our planet, and with them the length of daylight hours changes. The sun’s rays either glide over the surface, delivering little heat to the Earth – in winter, then reach it and give up all available energy – in the summer.
“Of course, the earth’s axis is an abstract object, it is impossible to see it. However, scientists have figured out the location of both ends. The North and South Poles are located at the points of the “exit” of the axis to the surface. Scientists have found that the poles can shift.
“This happens due to different processes in the earth’s crust and ocean waters: due to a change in sea currents and the redistribution of underground magma reserves. More recently, this list has included the melting of glaciers and the pumping out (and therefore redistribution) of groundwater.
“Due to the rapid transformation of ice into water, as well as due to the transfer of groundwater into the oceans, according to scientists from the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the speed of the pole shift between 1995 and 2020 increased 17 times. And since 1980, as the researchers calculated, the points of the poles have shifted 4 meters from their original position.
“So far, fortunately, this only affects a microscopic change in the length of the day. But in the future, if the melting of glaciers continues and humanity continues to emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and pump out water, the poles will continue to migrate – and a moment may come when this will finally turn into something significant and, alas, negative.”

“Please, Robert…help me to understand some of these news of this article,” says Martin. “Does it mean that if we… as such powerful human beings …we can make the Pole stop to ‘migrate’ or slow it down if we don’t emit more ‘greenhouse gases’? But…when dealing with ‘Natural’ phenomena of the Earth we’re powerful, but with a tiny virus you run away like a chicken!! BS!”
Martin, Martin, Martin. Shame, shame, shame. You should be ashamed of yourself for daring to think.
Do you suppose the Russians want the U.S. to buy into the global warming fraud and then proceed to destroy its energy-generating capabilities?
Nah. That couldn’t be true. Could it?
