Earth’s Rotation Is Slowing Down: Scientists Warn of More Severe Earthquakes in 2018 (+Video)

Scientists have found strong evidence that 2018 will see a big uptick in the number of large earthquakes globally. Earth’s rotation, as with many things, is cyclical, slowing down by a few milliseconds per day then speeding up again.

The result of this slight variation in the rotational speed of Earth will be an increase in the number of severe earthquakes.

Geophysicists are able to measure the rotational speed of Earth extremely precisely, calculating slight variations on the order of milliseconds. Now, scientists believe a slowdown of the Earth’s rotation is the link to an observed cyclical increase in earthquakes. (Article by Trevor Nace)

    Think about how stupid this is. Do we need to make different clocks? All experiments show no spin at all.

    Even the Earth Crusr cartoon is a lie since nobody has ever been able to drill deeper than 9 miles. The official Earth story is a s useless as the official 911 story yet they teach both disinfos in Fool School.
