What would happen if the spinning of the earth sped up?

    Days would be shorter. Also, the shape of the earth could change, with the circumference at the equator getting larger.

    Studies have also shown adverse health effects of a shorter day, such as obesity, less cognitive ability (i.e. memory, learning), etc. With the speed of Earth’s rotation increased, you would also find an increase in water depth near the equator due to a greater centripetal force. The weight of objects on Earth would lessen as the centripetal force grew, and an increase in the area of the equator would cause a lot of tech-tonic activity.
