Global Warming Bringing Us More Benefits: Longer Days!

I wonder when man first uttered the words, "There aren't enough hours in the day"?

Well, our wish for more time in our days may finally be coming true, thanks to global warming.

In a New Scientist article a scientist in Belgium has determined that "The overall effect will be to give the planet a nudge from east to west, marginally slowing its rotation from west to east." In the end, we'll pick up about 1 microsecond.

Don't blink or you'll miss it several times over.

But a microsecond here and a microsecond there, over a billion years or so you might have a free vacation!
