One of those crazy lunchtime chats,
The melting polar ice caps got us chatting the other day at work,
The earths wobble was the subject of the day, the cause of the seasonal, and the global temperature changes, and the earths weather, as the tilt disperses the angle that the rays of the sun hit the earths surface.
The same phenomenon that caused the invading Romans to grow grape vines on the South sloping slopes in England in the warm concentrated fields.
Those same early summer slopes that young courting couples seek to avoid passing glances, as do the local adders.
Global warming was top of the list, and the possibility of the Earths weather systems running away as they overheated to create another Mars in our solar system.
But what if ,
The melting of the poles reduced the Earths wobble.
And by doing so, enabled the Earth with its’ new found extra energy to move further away from the sun on its rotational orbits.
Another way of looking at it is to assume that the Earth did not have a wobble and simply span on its axis as it circled the sun, if it was now to develop a wobble because of the weight of newly formed mountains of ice on the poles, then obviously some of its inertia would be used up by this extra movement and its orbit would be reduced.
The Earth would then be closer to the sun, as we are now today. The poles would start to melt and the weight of the ice would be evenly spread throughout the oceans.
At this point the Earths wobble would slowly subside, and the extra energy gained would increase its orbit, taking it further away from the warming rays of the sun.
And once again the poles would start to freeze over again, creating the wobble yet again, and reducing its orbit.
So if our crazy lunchtime theory is true, then we are all heading for a extended tour around our solar system sometime in the future.
It also shows just how important wobbly things are !!!
We are in now in the process of doing some serious tests, the spinning apple hung on a bit of string with two lumps of poorly attached blue tack should prove it one way or another.
