So weak am I. Climate warming has taken away my will power.
The Chandler wobble is a small deviation in the Earth’s axis of rotation relative to the solid earth, which was discovered by American astronomer Seth Carlo Chandler in 1891. It amounts to change of about 9 metres (30 ft) in the point at which the axis intersects the Earth’s surface and has a period of 433 days. This wobble, which is a nutation, combines with another wobble with a period of one year, so that the total polar motion varies with a period of about 7 years.
The Chandler wobble is an example of the kind of motion that can occur for a spinning object that is not a sphere; this is called a free nutation. Somewhat confusingly, the direction of the Earth’s spin axis relative to the stars also varies with different periods, and these motionsâcaused by the tidal forces of the Moon and Sunâare also called nutations, except for the slowest, which are precessions of the equinoxes.
Yeah, well - go ahead & think that, oh ye of little faith.
Just wait'll we git after 'er with the old synchronization, and the chanting of "Kumbayah" or "Black Lives Matter" or "Abracadabra Snackbar". It's the chanting that's important [not impotent, because that's something different.].
We'll have that old wobble fixed up in a jiffy, you betcha.
Man, Global Warming, is there nothing it can’t do?
Lots of rain - AGW
Droughts - AGW
Too much snow - AGW
All the snow melted - AGW
Bad hair day - AGW
I am going to do something about this global warming, I’m going to ignore it and hope the Hysterions are the first to be consumed by the rising oceans. And if that don’t work, I’m going to burn an extra tank of gas through my F250, every week, for all of 2016.
Hooray for Global Warming - unhinging the lefty libturds better than anything, with the possible exception of Donald Trump!
On a larger scale, if there are too many people on the planet, it will sink out of orbit.
The science is settled.
Now where can I get me some of those 100 Percent Whole Grain Baked Apple & Cinnamon Newtons???
Oh, before I forget :-)
It’s not too hard to imagine these loons making the claim that global warming is literally causing the sky to fall.
The Crazies think they’ve won and are about to go Completely Crazy
Well, when that big forklift accidentally dropped the last two pallets of Fig Newtons on the planet, that caused a wobble, too.
You might not believe me, but it's right on Snopes.
Stop it, yer killin me!
So, maybe we could get a really long cable and tie it or bolt it to something to hold Chandler Bing in place, so's it couldn't wander around and wobble and stuff.
A WOBBLING Circle!
I thought wobbles were for weebles.
I'm not taking credit for this study but I knew it all along........
let’s see the earth spins like a top...most of the land mass in the northern hemisphere. we’ve had numerous earthquakes that up lifted the lad mass and several volcanoes that spewed out lava adding to this land mass this has change the tilt to somewhere around 23.5*plus some now the sun hits the earth at a different angle so it is not hotter in some place and colder in others...
All that money could be donated to FR. Then the dumba$$es heads would spin. But they would still wobble.
And so does the tail wag the dog.
