Skip to comments.Chandler's Wobble Causes Earthquakes, Volcanism, El Nino, and Global Warming

The exact location of the North and South Poles of the Earth's spin axis are constantly changing while the Earth's crust wobbles slightly around and over the poles in the 14 month and 6.5 year cycles of Chandler's Wobble. The eigth graphs in this story board demonstrate that peaks of seismic and volcanic activity come and go in accordance with these rhythms of Chandler's Wobble to produce the El Nino syndrome. The graphs also prove that the total amount of this activity has progressively increased during the last 50 years while the center of Chandler's Wobble has slowly drifted towards the Great Lakes. It is highly likely that this increase in global volcanism is the cause of global warming..
Michael Wells Mandeville didn't get the memo. Earthquakes, volcanism, El Nino, and global warming are all President Bush's fault.
Obviously Bush's fault.
Any word on the wobbles of the other five "Friends"?
This kook is a moron on about 500 different levels.
1) There's no increase in global volcanism.
2) He's basically "cooked the books" on all of his graphs; they're all garbage.
3) Increased volcanism COOLS the earth, not warms it.
Jack Daniels has been known to cause wobbles too!
Rocky came in
Stinking of gin
Only to find
Is that like Teddy's wobble?
And Chandler's Wobble is all Bush's fault, right?

The greatest mass extinction in the 3.5-billion-year history of life on Earth probably occurred as a result of climate change resulting from a series of huge volcanic eruptions, researchers believe.
They said a study of "the great dying", when 90 per cent of marine life became extinct and three-quarters of land animals and plants died out, had failed to support earlier suggestions of the Earth and a giant asteroid colliding.
Previous studies have suggested that a sudden catastrophic change in the global climate resulted from an asteroid collision 250 million years ago, when the greatest of five mass extinctions took place. But scientists investigating volcanic ash sediments in South Africa and China - fallout from the same volcanic eruptions in Siberia - believe that a relatively slow rate of extinction occurred over millions of years.
Peter Ward of the University of Washington, a leader of the joint American-South African research team, said the volcanoes probably triggered the release of massive quantities of greenhouse gases which led to catastrophic climate change. "Animals and plants both on land and in the sea were dying at the same time, and apparently from the same causes - too much heat and too little oxygen," he said.
His findings are published in the online version of Science.

Chandler is the one who lives with Joey across the hall from the girls. I am not sure if he is the one with the third nipple or not but his father dresses like a woman and stars in a show called "Viva Las Gaygas".
Earth throws a wobblyThe Chandler Wobble, a mysterious wobble that shakes the Earth as it spins on its axis, was first detected in 1891 by an American astronomer called Seth Carlo Chandler. The force of the wobble is such that it is capable of moving the North Pole about six metres (20 feet) from where it should be and lasts around 433 days, or just 1.2 years. Scientists originally calculated that this phenomenon should naturally run out of steam after 68 years unless some force keeps activating it. And this is precisely what appears to happen. NASA's Richard Gross says the principle causes of the wobble are fluctuating pressures on the bottom of the oceans, the result of changes in temperature, salinity and wind patterns. Dr Michael Tsimplis, from the Southampton Oceanography Centre, UK, says that the Gross theory is plausible. "Any stress you apply to the surface of the Earth can affect its axis," he said.
