When the Earth Goes Tilt

Tilt! A word associated with pinball games (if anyone remembers what those are) is now associated with the warming and cooling of the planet.

The idea that slight shifts in Earth’s axis might have been enough to trigger the ice ages is a century old.

But a Harvard earth sciences Professor Peter Huybers has finally proved it, using computer models to test competing ideas – and finding that earth’s tilting axis is the only one that works.

So, per this, it’s not that nasty old anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 that certain warmers have been blithering about for decades, it’s the variation of the tilt of the Earth’s axis, something I remember hearing about in grade school about 50 years ago, in pre-Goracle times when kids were taught actual science and didn’t major in Greentard Brainwashing 101.

Two ‘cycles’ in the way Earth’s axis spins have an effect on the cycle – one lasting 10,000 years and one lasting roughly 40,000 years.

When they align correctly, ice melts. At the other extreme, glaciers advance.

‘And at least now we know with greater than 99 percent confidence that shifts in earth’s axis are among the factors that contribute to deglaciation.’ 

OK. We’re waiting for certain people out there we all know and ‘love’ to capitulate and say ‘oops!’, but we won’t hold our breath.

  1. if the net amount of energy that the sun sends to the earth remains the same why would we expect an ice age??? Certainly different parts of the planet would be nice and others not so much….. , but energy in minus energy out is the determinator…..which way the ball faces should not be the main factor. His certainty reminds me of a lot of others who are very certain that magic gas ( c02 ) makes it all happen.

    • You ask a great question. Why does the axis tilt affect climate? The amount of solar radiation incident on the surface of a sphere is not changed if you tilt it’s axis of spin (rotation). But the tilt angle does affect climate in a different way. Consider this example… Imagine the axis of earth’s rotation pointed directly at the sun. One hemisphere would be in perpetual daylight, and the other would totally dark without direct solar heating. The dark hemisphere would become very cold and glaciers would grow. Fed by snowfall from water vapor (clouds) coming from the day side. In this extreme tilt case, the day side would dry out and most water would be trapped in big glaciers on the dark side. A sort of giant “cold trap” for water. At less extreme tilt angles this process happens to a lesser but significant extent. The rate of change of the tilt angle is known and can be calculated accurately into the future using Newtonian mechanics. Caused by gravitational interactions between the earth, moon, sun, planets.

    I have always believed in the magnetic poles as being quite variable in cycles.In fact depending on which way the earth would tilt or has tilted may explain why there are areas such as Antarctica which were quite warm at one time versus the whole theory that the earth at one time was Ice free.

    It may also explain why that during the supposed mini ice ages which if you believe in this theory of the fluctuating poles never occurred and that places that are warmer now were colder then were only so because of this shift.

    I believe when the Good Lord made this place it was designed with airconditiong at each end and a heater in the middle. The storms and ocean currents that move and mix the air were also designed to do just what they are doing transporting heat and cool back and forth around the planet just as your returns on your home HVAC are designed to do also.
