    So NASA says moon wobble will cause tsunamis

    "No less an authority than NASA is warning of a perfect storm of sorts, as an upcoming phase of a lunar cycle combines with rising sea levels to exacerbate the effects of climate change.

    The finding is contained in a study by NASA's Sea Level Change Science Team, at the University of Hawaii, which said the main reason was the impact a "regular wobble in the Moon's orbit" would have on tides in about 15 years' time.

    "The combination of the Moon's gravitational pull, rising sea levels, and climate change will continue to exacerbate coastal flooding on our coastlines and across the world," NASA administrator Bill Nelson said.

    "Low-lying areas near sea level are increasingly at risk and suffering due to the increased flooding, and it will only get worse."

    The study — which coincides with deadly downpours in Germany and Belgium — forecasts "dramatic increases" in the number of floods, as well as "rapidly increasing high-tide floods" in the mid-2030s.

    NASA said the main reason was a regular wobble in the Moon's orbit — first detected in 1728 — that takes 18.6 years to complete.

    The agency said what was new was how the wobble's effects on the Moon's gravitational pull – the main cause of Earth's tides – would "combine with rising sea levels resulting from the planet's warming".

    Well this is very interesting. Just like the cycle of northern lights and then slowly decreasing over 10 years.... and on the 11th year they flare up with the suns solar flares.... the lack of them in the 9th and 10th year was blamed on climate change.

    interesting quote from the article, Lol

    disregard science, knowing the moon effects the tides.., lol. Blame climate change.

    ‘Quote from the article. ‘Astrophysicist and science communicator Kirsten Banks said the Moon was currently in a tide-amplifying part of its cycle — but the effects were not as environmentally significant as they would be next time round.

    "We are currently in an amplified stage of the cycle, but the sea levels are at an OK level so it doesn't affect us as much as it will in the next cycle," she said.

    According to NASA's research, floods will occur in clusters lasting "a month or longer, depending on the positions of the Moon, Earth, and the Sun".

    But Ms Banks said we should not be leaping to point the finger at celestial movements, but climate change.

    "As much as it would be easy to blame the Moon, we have ourselves to blame for this one," she said.’


      Also Ms. banks is not an astrophysicist. She has a bachelors degree in physics, that is all... but is called on as an expert. Lol. No PhD. Doctorate degree at all.


        Moon wobble sounds like a cutesy term for twerking.


          Pff tides, who needs em? the ocean washes up 15 meters and goes down again. they say without this there'd be no life on earth as we know it or something lol. i don't buy it.

          if you like eating seaweed maybe tides are good i dunno.


            Everything NASA says should be taken with a grain of salt.


              The moon clearly wobbles due to a mirage caused by swamp gas trapped in a thermal reflecting the light of venus.

              Also spider webs in the sky.

                Not that doctorate means anything anyway, usually always too specialized to make one an expert in all aspects of even their chosen discipline

                NASA satellites were always too inaccurate to calculate ocean volumes anyway, and calculating the length of a coastline is a famous maths problem ( length of a coastline technically approaches infinity the smaller the unit of measurement you use to estimate it's curves)

                ​​​​​​So sea level rises were always based on ocean volume as determined by not accurate enough satellites X surface area that tends toward infinity as you try estimate the function that describes the length of the coastline....then try to claim you are sure down to the nearest millimetre

                I'm not going to bother trying to read up how they have claimed to make predictions about the moon's wobble, because that's also another famous maths problem that has yet to be solved, the three body problem

                The Sun, Jupiter, every other planet and moon figure into calculations for our moon's wobble, including the mystery ninth planet they have yet to find. So trying to claim they can predict tidal forces on earth in 13 years time down to the nearest metre is likely to be complete garbage

                Meanwhile, NASA sends a rover to Mars that loses battery power because of dust on Mars, who would have thought there would be dust on Mars? This is the same NASA
