Climate crisis is shifting the rotation axis of the planet, according to a Chinese study. Scientists said the distribution of water on the planet's surface is a possible cause. Last March a group of researchers from the Academies of Sciences of China made this sensational study.
Changing the inclination of the Earth's rotation axis will not bring about changes for our lives. It could change the duration of our days by a few thousandths of a second. But it is the last evidence of climate change. The study suggests that the melting of the ice sheet, due to the ongoing warming of the earth's atmosphere, has caused a redistribution of marine waters on the globe.
Chinese scientists calculated the total water loss that was contained in the polar ice and estimated the pumping of groundwater. The results is a possible drift, between 1995 and 2020, 17 times higher than that of the 1981-1995 period.
Ice has a tendency to curve the surface of the Earth. If the weight of the ice sheet decreases, the surface tends to rise gradually, giving rise to what scientists call post-glacial rebound. But the melting of the ice would not be able to explain the phenomenon alone.
Child dies of pollution in London
Pollution has been listed as the cause of death of a child in UK. Autopsy medical examiner is now calling on parliament to change laws to reduce the allowable limit of air contamination. According BBC said Dr.
Philip Barlow, the medical examiner author of the investigation, presented a report asking the parliament to intervene: "There are no healthy levels of contamination in the air of London. Currently allowed limits on pollution must be reduced in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organization."
The child dead was Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, who lived in the London borough of Lewisham near the South Circular Road. Last December the investigation into his death ended with a sentence by the coroner, according to which air pollution is the cause of death to be reported in its certificate.
BBC said Dr. Philip Barlow, the medical examiner author of the investigation, presented a report asking the parliament to intervene: "There are no healthy levels of contamination in the air of London. Currently allowed limits on pollution must be reduced in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organization."
Health experts describe the issue as a public health emergency. Some London streets have the highest pollution rate in Europe. Children, the elderly and 6 million people with respiratory problems are considered at risk due to air contamination in this country.
A new environmental protection law, under consideration by the Westminster Parliament, sets new limits on pollution by 2022.
