    What force is needed to turn the Earth Pole-over Pole. Eg. UK now on Equator?

    Specifically, if someone could specify the Joules energy required to force the Earth to slowly rotate the poles end-to-end by say 1 degrees rotation, and by 5 degrees. To be clear I mean to literally rotate the Earth (both poles in opposite directions), say Singapore will therefore be below the...
