    The following are a few sources of information that coincide with my observations regarding an apparent widening of the earth's seasonal tilt angle.—-wordpress/

    I mounted a thermometer on the North side of my house years ago, so that I could watch it out my window. Living at 41deg. N. Latitude, I put it in that location because it NEVER got sun, and I could get an accurate reading. Since 2006 it has been receiving sunlight....and this summer, it seemed to get even more sunlight. I could even watch the sun rise and set out of that same, True North facing window! Lots of folks besides me are noticing it now. For those of you so inclined, get a gander at the sun rise/set locations on December 21 of this year. The change is considerable, the to investigation. Most observers seem to think the anomaly results from increased seasonal tilt....but who knows. I'll bet lots of people do. But the vast majority ain't talking. Mention your observations to the local 'meteorologist' and he won't talk. He could lose his job (at least) over it.

    As I watched the sun set in the direction of the pacific northwestern U.S. this summer, I wasn't a bit surprised to hear that they had their hottest summer ever...

    This is complete nonsense. There is no "seasonal tilt." The Earth's axis precesses at a rate of 26,000 years. For as long as you and I have both been alive, the Earth's axis has been such that the axis is pointing to the star Polaris (actually about 1 degree off).

    The torque that creates the precession of Earth's axis is the result of the gravity imposed upon our planet by the Sun and Moon.

    There has, indeed, been a change in the Earth's axial tilt since the mounting of your thermometer, but the change is so slight that it wouldn't be noticed. It takes about 72 years to move just 1 degree. I doubt you mounted your thermometer 72 years ago and it certainly would not be sufficient enough to notice a change in the direction of sunlight.

    Indeed, this is total crap. Of course, the position of sunrises and sunsets at the horizon changes through the year. In the northern hemisphere, the sunrise is towards the southeast at winter solstice, and towards northeast at summer solstice. At the same time the sun daily culminates at different elevations above the horizon. This is the result of the inclination of the earth's rotation axis. It is tilted by 23.5 deg relative to the ecliptic, i.e. the orbit of the earth around the sun.
