Is it possible to make the earth go farther from sun and so make the planet cooler?

    link..? (what is the angular velocity of jupiter and earth?)

    I forgot how to calculate angular velocity, but orbital speed of Jupiter
    is smaller than that of the earth's. :shrug:

    Jupiter's average orbital speed: 13.07 km/s (link)

    Earth's average orbital speed: 29.783 km/s (link)


    Also, how do we know that by reducing the earth mass, the earth will be
    pulled farther from the sun, rather than orbit faster? (for example)

    angular velocity = 2 pi radians / T
    Earth angular velocity = 7.2921159*10^-5 rad/sec
    Jupiter angular velocity = 1.76*10^-4 rad/sec

    There's no need to move the earth; we seem to enter a cool PDO (Pacific Decadal Oscillation) phase due to La Nina which can last between 5 and 20 (1970's) years.

    The planet's still too cool. Isn't summer supposed to be coming, and yet I'm still running more heat than air conditioning?

    What "global warming?" I sure don't feel it, or wouldn't mind feeling some natural "warming."

    According to the recent book I am reading, "Climate Confusion," all natural disasters are now caused by "global warming." Apparently, there were no natural disasters before, according to the illogic of "global warming" pushing enviro-radicals. Snowstorms, heat waves, hurricanes, earthquakes, all supposedly evidence of global warming? And yet, it's quite normal for weather to be "unusual" and to vary, even history tells us that.

    Liars like Al Gore, conveniently ignore a huge warming trend around 1000 years ago, because it doesn't bit their power-mad scare-tactics agenda. We just came out of some Little Ice Age from around 1500 to 1800. But people prospered in past warming trends, they weren't thought to be "the end of the world."
