The North Pole Is Moving Toward The UK; Is Climate Change To Blame?
A changing climate might be causing shifts in how the Earth wobbles and the way the North Pole moves, according to a new NASA study.By Ethan Weston | April 9, 2016
Global warming might be affecting more than just the climate. A new study from NASA found it might also be changing the way the Earth moves on its axis.
Unlike a desktop globe, Earth isn't a perfect sphere and actually wobbles while it rotates, which means the poles aren't always in the same place. In fact for most of the 20th century, the north pole was drifting slowly toward Canada.
But around the year 2000, scientists noticed it started moving toward the United Kingdom.
