Main Question or Discussion Point
So I have heard that the Earth is spinning away from the sun at a slow rate. Is this rate fast enough to negate global warming by a significant amount, or is it too insignificant to effect anything?
By Kepler´s 3rd Law, should it cause a year to grow by 21 ppm, meaning get 10 minutes longer?There are both long and short time scale variations in the Earth's distance from the Sun. Over the time period of 1800-2050 AD, the distance increases slightly,For instance, at the average rate of distance increase between 1800 and 2050 AD, the distance will only have increased by some 2100 km over that 2.5 century time span, which pales in comparison to the 149.6 million km distance to the Sun.
