Seems extreme to call Chandler wobble the "cause"
This seems to be rather extreme:
- theorised as the cause of major tectonic activity, including earthquakes, volcanism, El Niño, and global warming phenomenon
Would it be more correct to say:
- theorised as the chaotic trigger of major tectonic activity, including earthquakes, volcanism, El Niño, and global warming phenomenon

Are you just saying the following because the information was released on Coast to Coast AM, or have you actually checked the data yourself?
- During a national radio broadcast on 28 January 2006, Lloyd Stewart Carpenter reported that the Chandler wobble has stopped (i.e., its amplitude has reduced to zero) -- which could be a harbinger of a catastrophic pole shift.
I don't think it's fair to call this completely unfounded.
Coast to coast AM?? hahaha. articles like this are what give wikipedia a bad rap. CiXeL
Euler nutation period 305 or 355 days?
Several sources on the Internet as well as a major Swedish encyclopedia (NE) states that Euler predicted the nutation to have a period of 305 days. Which figure is the correct one? Mårten Berglund (talk) 22:30, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
