Moon's 'wobble' could cause record flooding in 2030's warns NASA study

This is dangerous as it will have an effect on the lives and livelihood of people.

While global climate change has been a cause of extreme weather conditions for the last few years, a new study has found out that a 'wobble' in the Moon's orbit combined with rising sea levels will lead to erratic and devastating floods.

 

According to a study, conducted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), 'nuisance floods' will become more frequent and irregular by the mid-2030s.

 

It has shown that the earth’s only satellite, the moon and a wobble can bring devastating floods on the earth. It is seen that a ‘wobble’ in the moon’s orbit will eventually lead to high tide in the sea levels and due to the climate change it will turn out to huge floods across the globe.

 

A nuisance flood is common in the coastal areas, where the tide can be seen to reach a height of two feet above the normal range. This is dangerous as it will have an effect on the lives and livelihood of the people residing there.

 

The water can also enter the streets and the houses nearby. This will become common and irregular in 2030’s.

 

A wobble on the moon’s orbit takes 18.6 years to complete, and also it has always been present there. The thing which is making it dangerous is the rising sea levels due to the earth’s climate change.If there is no planning done for such events, it will cause major disruptions.
