  1. Re: Earth Axis Possibly Changed:
    While sending prayers to the persons affected
    by the earthquake and tidal wave disaster, I
    have also been extremely intrigued by statements read that the earth’s axis might have been affected. It would be interesting to access an article that states specifically in what way the axis has been affected and if this has affected the path of the sun across the sky and the location of the magnetic poles.

  2. This is the most I’ve seen on how the earth was affected: Quake’s Power Equal To 1 Million Atomic Bombs?: Sieh and other scientists said it probably jolted the planet’s rotation. “It causes the planet to wobble a little bit, but it’s not going to turn Earth upside down,” geologist Kerry Sieh said.
