Climate shock: Earth’s orbit has influenced climate fluctuations for 215 million years

A CLIMATE study published this week threatens to radically change the way we understand the causes of changes in global climates and how we could be caught in a 405,000-year-long cycle of shifting climate.

A team of scientists studying ancient rocks in the arid Arizona desert believe Earth’s orbit plays a vital role in cyclical climate changes.

Although astrophysicists have long toyed with the idea celestial movements affect Earth’s climate, the study’s authors may have just produced the first concrete evidence.

The scientists now think the gravitational forces of Venus and Jupiter shift Earth’s round orbit into a more elliptical one in a regular cycle.
