Remember physics class when we experimented with weights and mass and speed? For me it's way back, before the drinking age was raised to 21 from 18. I passed the physics even though I and everyone else had fake ID's.
Think of the Earth as a baseball. Global warming is melting our polar caps, redistributing the weight of all the ice toward the middle of our planet, comparable to a pitcher who spits a goober on a baseball ball and throws it toward the plate. The ball does strange things in flight.
The redistribution of weight might not only change the planet's axis, but also help cause the further shifting of our planets plates, resulting in earthquakes.
What do you think?
