Not to get off-topic, but if the earth's rotation is slowing down, then that means that it used to be going faster. And if we back this up a long time, say, millions of years, then we are going to have a little wind problem. The rotation of the earth causes the circulation of the upper atmosphere, which has a direct effect on the lower atmosphere wind patterns. If the earth was rotating a whole lot faster, then, would not the winds be too strong for life to "evolve"?
