NASA warns moon “wobble” could lead to more flooding, more often

“The moon is wobbling. There’s really no other way to say it. A slight alteration to the moon’s orbit — a wobble, if you will — has raised both eyebrows and questions about what effect such a slight jiggle may have here on Earth. It’s funny to say, sure, but the potential ramifications of a moon wobble have scientists concerned for the future. In a study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change in June, scientists suggest that by the 2030s, the wobble will have enough of an effect on the moon’s gravitational pull to impact rising sea levels, seeing coastal cities all around the US cop a drastic increase in flooding.” (07/14/21)
