Climate change alarmists say that the earth is “spinning faster” because of “global warming,” amid calls for reducing carbon dioxide output.
In an article from Mic titled “Climate Change Is Literally Making the Earth Spin Faster,” A.J. Dellinger writes the days are getting shorter due to the faster rotation of the earth, citing a study published in the Journal of Geophysical Earth.
Dellinger writes that while a normal day on earth is made up of 86,400 seconds, June 29 saw “our shortest day on record,” – a 1.59 milliseconds faster than it usually would.
“As for what is causing the planet to speed up, well, it’s us,” Dellinger writes.
“Human-caused climate change has altered the makeup of the planet, including melting the ice caps so significantly that it appears to have changed the angular velocity of the planet.”
But according to another article from UK-based UNILAD, “Scientists don’t know why the Earth is spinning faster than ever,” the outlet cites several possible theories for the phenomenon, including something called the “Chandler wobble,” which refers to an irregular movement of the geographical poles across the globe.
The article also pushes against Dellinger’s assertion that June 29 was the shortest day in the earth’s history, adding that a billion years ago, “the Earth was closer to the moon, causing it to rotate a lot faster than it does now – as such, there were only 19 hours in a day.”
Blaming faster earth rotation has become another apparent tool of climate doomers, adding to a string of wild attributions to rising temperatures over the last decade.
In 2016, global warming was falsely blamed for a decline in coffee production, colder winters, and hurricanes.
In 2017, climate change was the scapegoat for the decimation of migratory songbirds.
In 2019, the Independent newspaper said “climate change” was responsible for lower potato yields, resulting in Pommes frites one inch shorter on average, citing an analysis by the Climate Coalition network and scientists at the University of Leeds.
Climate change has now become a convenient scapegoat for problems worldwide, including mass deaths of reindeer to the creation of “ghost forests” along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, and wildfires.
Celebrities and politicians have jumped on the climate doom trend.
Several years ago, singer Stevie Wonder claimed climate change caused cancer that killed legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin.
The singer also implied climate change skeptics shared the responsibility for Franklin’s death.
Former U.S. President Barack Obama took things a step further, claiming the rise of the Islamic terror group Boko Haram in Nigeria was because of partially because of climate change.
What is even more bizzare is veteran Loch Ness monster hunter Robert Rines halted his search for Nessie after 37 years, declaring the monster had probably been killed by global warming.
