Many people think that our Seasons are due to the Earth`s distance from the Sun during the elliptical orbit e.g The Earth is closer to the Sun in Summer and further away from the Sun in Winter.
 
Well, they are wrong, back to the drawing board. Since it is Summer in Australia when it is Winter in Europe and vice versa, the Earth`s distance from the Sun is not the cause of our Seasons.
 
Seasons are caused entirely by the TILT or axial shift of the Earth during its own normal axial rotational orbit around the Sun. The axial shift is mathematically precisional and is constant for every year and  every orbit.
 
I think I`ll have a beer.

And, after that pint, if you wish to delve deeper into the mysteries might I suggest studying the Milankovitch cycles?
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

We are also way past due for a polar shift (reversal)...like at least 300,000 years past due

Hey Stoley, who`s a tricky bunny. ?

 

Does that mean that North America will become South America and vice versa ?

 

Olé! gringo gal. Swap that battered old Stetson for a Sombrero eh ?

Many people cannot even identify which continent they live on, if you turn the world map upside down...

Decisions.  Decisions.

 

and those guys are SUPER excited about it: "This will be its fourth and excitement is mounting, especially as we're only a few months away from complete reversal." LOLL

sadly (for us and every living creature on earth) polar reversal on our planet is followed by massive extinction periods. Hope y'all got your flights to Mars booked.

I am in permanent fear of anything catastrophically quick. The reason is that I get a weekly supply of beer and don`t wish to be wiped out before I drink it.
