Albert Einstein took an interest in the phenomena of pole shifts. He had this to say, "In a polar region there is a continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth's rotation acts on these asymmetrically deposited masses [of ice], and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth's crust over the rest of the earth's body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator." - Albert Einstein From The Path of the Pole by Charles Hapgood
And NASA is showing that in 1998 the Earth's equator is bulging. See the article here: Web Link. With scientists saying that the artic ice caps could be totally gone by the summer time in about four years, could that mean we would see a pole shift?? Does anyone believe this? The coincidence of the ice shelf collapse and the Hawaii volcano activity is too interesting to pass up.
