These severe weather events are inextricably allied with climate change, as noted by experts. But there is one more reason for such drastic changes, To put it straight, the ”one above, which impacts the weather a ‘wobble’ in Moon’s Orbit.
Undeniably, just days before the flooding, research in the Nature Climate Change science journal by the University of Hawaii and NASA’s scientists notified that the Earth possibly would witness ground-breaking flooding in the mid-2030s due to transformations in the Moon’s Orbit.
Avi Loeb said in an email sent to Salon that Climate change gives rise to an increase in sea levels that causes an increase in the rate of high tide floods.
Loeb again added that the gravity of the Moon pulls water in the oceans towards it. The magnitude of the pull changes with time as the moon ‘wobbles‘ in its Orbit, changing its position a little, with respect to Earth on a periodic cycle of 18.6-year.
Loeb further explained that, in the first half of the phase of the cycle, the power of the Moon on Earth roots small tides to rise and tall tides to shrivel, whereas in another half, tall tides get even bigger and small tides to get lower.
But though the Moon’s Orbit is not something in our control, man-made environment change is the other half aspect responsible.
As the magnitude at which climate change participated in the flooding in the past stays indistinct, scientists’ caution, in particular, is indubitable.
