New Study Shows Earth’s Tilt Big Player in Climate Change

New research identifies how Earth’s tilt effects climate. For the first time, researchers show a connection between Earth’s tilt called ‘obliquity’, which shifts every 40,000 years, and the movement of a low pressure band of clouds named Intertropical Convergence Zone, or … Continue reading
