The sunrise is always said to be a very regular thing, with people saying they can depend on it to assure them that the rest of the world, though it may be unpredictable, hinges on the fact that a few things work like clockwork. But in Greenland, a place with surprisingly little snow, the sunrise doesn’t come every day. And as scientists discovered on January 13, 2011 it actually came two full days early. And this is only the latest predictor of a worldwide disaster coming.
It’s no mystery that the Earth has been acting incredibly strange lately. Birds and other animals are dying, things seem to be warming up, and the poles are now shifting so much even airports are having to make changes to their infrastructure. And the changes aren’t just ending there. It appears that the entire planet has shifted somehow in such a way that the sun’s rays, once thought to be a predictable force like clockwork, have begun beaming down on Greenland out of synch with what we once thought a very gradual and predictable process. The town of Ilulissat, which normally enjoys a month of harsh darkness was given a two day reprieve this year for the first time.
But what could cause this change? The sun isn’t a moving body, as everyone know. Rather it is the Earth in its rotation and orbit around the sun that is affected by when the sun “rises.” And if the sun hasn’t changed, many are suggesting this is evidence that the Earth has taken a steeper shift in its axial orbit. Of course this theory is refuted easily enough. A change in the Earth’s axis would be visible everywhere and quite obvious to scientists making observations around the globe.
So if this is the case, how could the sun be shining in Greenland before it’s due? The answer is in the natural geography and the way shadows are cast to create a sunrise. If you lived behind a massive mountain and that mountain stood between you and the sun, you would receive far less sunlight than normally. But if you were at the top of that same mountain only a few miles away you would be receiving far more. It’s not that the Earth’s position to the sun is any different at the base of the mountain, only the location on the terrain.
But what does this have to do with Greenland? Thomas Posch, of the Institute for Astronomy of the University of Vienna, was quoted in an article by the Daily Times as saying essentially that the melting of ice over the course of time could have removed the mountain from our example along with its massive shadow. So what does that mean? From the perspective of those hiding in the shadow of the mountain as it rises and falls to the south leaving them in darkness for days at a time could be the “normal” state of affairs while this new early sunshine could be the result of some force warming the Earth past its normal time.
Normally the concept of sunshine is quite welcome on our planet fairly universally. But then in Greenland when the sun rises days ahead of schedule, take notice. It might mean the Earth is going through some major changes.
