Scientists have proven the shift of the Earth's orbit. What are the implications?

How did you find the group of researchers from Rutgers University, 405 every thousand years the Earth's orbit elongates. According to the scientists, this is due to the gravitational influence of the planet Jupiter and Venus. Moreover, if the predictions of scientists are correct, the elongation of the orbit can lead to abrupt change of climate.

In the course of the study, which was published in the journal EurekAlert!, a group of scientists under the leadership of Dennis Kent reviewed the results of the computer simulation of planetary motion in the Solar system for 50 thousand years and their impact on each other. The study also found that the deflection due to the location of the magnetic poles of the Earth. To do this, scientists investigated the analysis of sediments of the Newark rift basin (in new Jersey), and a sample of sediment in a geological formation Chinle Formation. Rock samples dated to the late Triassic period in the time interval from 253 to 202 million years ago. The samples had the minerals zircon with particles of a crystal by which to judge the state of the magnetic field of the planet.

The results Obtained allowed to suggest that the Earth's orbit was more elongated, and its change caused climate change and the mass extinction of living beings. It should be noted that Triassic extinction event occurred just before the breakup of Pangaea (the single continent), and the result of it was the extinction of almost half of all living creatures, so the ancient animal was taken by the dinosaurs who dominated the planet before the Ice age. If the assumption of scientists is correct, then in the future we will have a abrupt change of climate that will affect the flora and fauna.
