Regarding several of the recent earthquakes around the world, it has been said that they have caused days to grow slightly shorter, but I think that they are a symptom, and not the cause: as the polar ice melts, the pressure upon the crust lessens and the Earth becomes slightly less flattened at the poles, thus tightening at the equator and gaining spin; the earthquakes are a consequence of this change in shape, and, with the current rate of climate change, it worries me that they might become harsher and more frequent.
