earth's axis tilt has recently increased by an additional 26 degrees


UPDATE: 13 march 2011 SPACE.COM
The massive earthquake that struck northeast Japan Friday (March 11) has shortened the length Earth's day by a fraction and shifted how the planet's mass is distributed.

A new analysis of the 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan has found that the intense temblor has accelerated Earth's spin, shortening the length of the 24-hour day by 1.8 microseconds, according to geophysicist Richard Gross at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Gross refined his estimates of the Japan quake's impact – which previously suggested a 1.6-microsecond shortening of the day – based on new data on how much the fault that triggered the earthquake slipped to redistribute the planet's mass.

"By changing the distribution of the Earth's mass, the Japanese earthquake should have caused the Earth to rotate a bit faster, shortening the length of the day by about 1.8 microseconds," Gross told SPACE.com in an e-mail. More refinements are possible as new information on the earthquake comes to light, he added. ~ read more
UPDATE: 12 march 2011:

(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.

"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters). ~ source/video/read more

Earth's surface 'lurches 11ft to the right' as New Zealand earthquake rips new fault line

The earthquake that devastated a city in New Zealand tore open a new 11ft faultine in the Earth’s surface.

The 7.1-magnitude quake which hit Christchurch, the country’s second-largest city, destroyed about 500 buildings and caused an estimated £930million of damage.

But hundreds of lives were saved by tough building rules, it was claimed. Only two injuries were reported.

The quake was caused by the continuing collision between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates, said Professor Mark Quigley, of Canterbury University.

‘One side of the Earth has lurched to the right ... up to 11ft and in some places been thrust up,’ he said. ‘We went and saw two houses that were completely snapped in half by the earthquake.’

The quake cut power across the region, roads were blocked by debris and gas and water supplies were disrupted.

Christchurch mayor Bob Parker said power was back to 90 per cent of the city and water supply had resumed for all but 15 to 20 per cent of residents. ~ read more

so, we were over on jim brown's blog where in his 'relevant news articles' section we noticed that he had a text link captioned 'earth's axis tilt-take a look views of the earth' the link takes you to the above website which shows how the earth's axis has increased from the normal 23.5 degree tilt to a current tilt of 49.5 degrees. the website maintains that "It did not slip all at once. It has been a slow change over the past 20 years, but two of the most significant axial shifts occurred between Dec 4 and 6, 2006." ~ source

which brought to mind a january 2006 post we did based upon a radio interview of lloyd stewart carpenter by jeff crouere. mr. carpenter claims that a polar shift is immenient and that the earth is about to tip over on its axis. mr. carpenter also said that the earth's magnetic field will change at the same time [as the polar shift] so there will be no more electricity. mankind will revert to tribal living. scientists know that the magnetic field of the earth changes or reverses about once every 50,000 years and its been well over 50,000 years since thats last happened.

divulgence.net also says that "This change in tilt has resulted in moving the Tropic of Cancer from central Mexico to Maine and across the Dakotas (aprox) & has begun to wreak havoc upon the global weather patterns."
