A number of physicists predicted that a powerful earthquake that occurred in Japan March 11, 2011, may be the reason for the start of a new ice age on Earth.
In particular, a theoretical physicist Michio Kaku sure cataclysm provoked the appearance of fracture width of 400 km between tektanicheskimi plates beneath the Pacific Ocean. In the cracks hit the Earth's crust. This, according to the scientist, has shifted the axis by 17 cm, which in turn led to a reduction in the day by 1.26 microseconds. Thus, an acceleration of the earth's rotation.
Experts suggest that the cause of the onset of ice ages on the planet is the displacement axis. Several strong earthquakes in different parts of the world can lead to this.
