Current & Recent NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis Snowcover Statistics (Source: Department of Meteorology, Florida State University)
A remarkable image comparing snow cover during the years 1995-2009 to the current year 2010 shows a wobble in the daily rotation of the planet. This would be proof of the Earth wobbling, as a figure 8 is formed daily around the Earth’s magnetic N Pole. This can evidently be shown when captured in global temperature maps. When studying this map we can see snow-cover changes. This chart compared the year 2010 to the composite for 1995-2009. The Earth wobble is dramatic, showing less snow cover in the US west and above the Black Sea, on opposite sides of the globe from each other, and more snow cover below the Great Lakes in the US and Mongolia, again on opposite sides of the globe from each other. In this graphic, the blue color indicates 2010 snow cover to April 18, 2010. The green lines indicate snow cover boundaries during the years 1995-2009. Note that in eastern Russia and the American southwest, which are directly across the Arctic from each other, there is less snow cover in 2010 than in previous years. Likewise in the Great Lakes region and directly across the Arctic over India there is more snow cover in 2010 than in previous years. The wobble pattern of the earth occurs over the Arctic, drawing a figure 8 over the N Pole. Computer model calculations are estimating the gravity center of the earth being off center by 33 feet. A small distance only, but enough to change the snow cover patterns due to changing exposure and entry angles of the sunlight.
Another institute in Russia made the following observation:

This winter will be remembered for a long time residents of many countries. Beijing covered with snow, a snowfall Podnebesnya has not seen for 60 years. Is it not better in Korea. Since the history of weather observations, which are maintained on the peninsula since 1937, this amount of snow did never fall. Absolutely all of Britain too was covered under snow. According to the calculations of economists this winter will cost Foggy Albion more than a billion pounds. In Florida frozen orange groves and tropical fish are dying. Record-low temperature are also recorded in Cuba and in Europe.
Now this pattern has been repeated in a global map showing temperature changes in the Northern Hemisphere for the year 2009 when compared against a composite from the years 2000-2008. Here the bands of warm and cold have shifted position slightly, but the pattern of two warm and two cool sites on opposite sides of the globe from each other continued. The warmer spots are eastern Russia including Kamchatka and Alaska – the entire region around and through the Bearing Straits – and northern Africa up through the region of the Black Sea in eastern Europe. The cooler spots are the central US and Siberia down through Mongolia.
Nebraska (USA) -15 ° C (5 ° F)
Beijing (China) -16 ° C (3 ° F)
Florida (USA) -15 ° C (5 ° F)
Altnaharra (Scotland) -15 ° C (5 ° F)
Amsterdam (Netherlands) – 6 ° C (21 ° F)
Hamburg (Germany) -22,8 ° C (-9 ° F)
Siberia (Russian Federation) -37 ° C (-35 ° F)

Is the wobble to be blamed for the changing weather?
Please read this explanation as a basic introduction to the ‘Jet stream’
Extreme weather tends to come to North America during a predominant ‘Meridional Flow Pattern’ of the ‘Jetstream’
We can agree that the weather has gotten increasingly extreme, with droughts and deluges occurring and switching about in an unpredictable manner, and that this included unpredictable changes in the jet stream. The jet stream is affected primarily by the rotation of the Earth, the slow roll, which pulls the Earth under her blanket of air and creates swirling in the temperate regions, the prevailing Westerlies, as cold air from the poles rushes to drop into voids created by this motion. The jet stream is affected secondarily by warm and cold spots, warm over land masses that are more quickly heated or cooled than the ocean, which can circulate and maintain a more even distribution within its depths. Hot air is lighter than cold, and rises, cold heavier and drops, thus the storm systems attempting to equalize the density of air. The temperature and density and direction of air masses can be determined, and thus the weatherman has historically offered predictions, but these predictions have become increasingly difficult, in part because of the Earth wobble which jerks the Earth about dunder her mantel of air, often at cross currents to the jet stream. Has the jet stream changed? It’s gotten whackier, as the wobble has become more extreme, more violent.
As the polar wind meanders of the northern hemisphere jet stream is developing over (a) and (b), there will then finally be a ‘drop’ of cold air masses ‘falling’ southwards as it is detaching (c). (Orange: warmer masses of air; pink: jet stream) However, the flow of the cold ‘falling’ masses was always to only one side of the globe. Never at the same time did we have an invasion of the cold flow to both sides of the globe until this last winter (2009-2010) were it got Russia and the US and Europe at the same time.
Whatever is causing the increasing predominance of the ‘Meridional Flow Pattern’ of the ‘Jet stream’ it was not normally so. And never before did the cold masses detach to both sides of the pole at the same time until just recently.
Teach me, if you know more then me about the changing weather patterns and what is behind the phenomenon.
I always want to learn.
