Global warming shifting Earth’s wobble

WASHINGTON—Global warming is shifting the way the Earth wobbles on its polar axis, a new NASA study finds.

Melting ice sheets, especially in Greenland, are changing the distribution of weight on Earth.

And that has caused both the North Pole and the wobble, which is called polar motion, to change course, according to a study published Friday in the journal, “Science Advances.”

Busch sweeps again

FORT WORTH, Tex.—A broom was waiting for Kyle Busch in Victory Lane at Texas.

Busch took the lead after the final restart Saturday night—completing his second NASCAR weekend sweep in a row and becoming the first driver to do that since Harry Gant in 1991.

“It’s pretty darn good, I’ll tell you that,” Busch said when asked what it’s like to be him right now.
