U.S. researchers suggest that the Earth will stop in a few years

According to a study by American scientists, our planet will cease to rotate on its axis in a few years (note the original title of the article …migrate in next year…). Lead researcher Joseph Jankowski said that subsequently slowing the Earth's rotation days and nights will be longer, leading to floods, a huge earthquake and massive starvation. To date, this question is the most relevant, and most of the scientists trying to solve this particular puzzle.

Long ago, scientists assumed that the Earth's rotation rate decreased. According to information received another 3 billion years ago, the duration of the
