We Will Not Have 24 Hours In the Day In 2021

 In NCI News

2021 will be a shorter year, because we have less time in 2021 than we have had in the past 50 years. Not less time to do things, because we are so busy, but less time in the actual 24 hour day. What?

Where was this in 2020? I didn’t even want to switch my clock back an hour, because none of us needed an extra hour in that year!

According to scientist, 2021 is expected to be a shorter than normal year. Why? The earth is spinning at a faster rate than it has in the last 50 years.

This is actually caused by climate change, but how much shorter will it be than other years?


Well scientists say that the earth rotation has sped up and the shift means that time is slowing on the planet’s surface making each day a fraction of a second shorter than 24 hours.

So that means, there is no longer 24 hours in a day. Which naturally means, we definitely need to take some things off that “to do” list.  I opt for laundry, because ….ain’t nobody got time for that!
