The Earth Is Speeding Up

In an article of 7 January 2021, Phys Org reports:

“Scientists around the world have noted that the Earth has been spinning on its axis faster lately—the fastest ever recorded. Several scientists have spoken to the press about the unusual phenomenon, with some pointing out that this past year saw some of the shortest days ever recorded. Scientists also noted that this past summer, on July 19, the shortest day ever was recorded—it was 1.4602 milliseconds shorter than the standard.”

One-and-a-half seconds is not the blink of an eye (that’s about three hundred milliseconds).
