Great vlog! A point of information, in your video entitled "Thursday 4th June: A shift in perspective." You infer that the tilt has to do with the influence that the US/Europe/China have. That's not the case, it's purely astronomical. The Earth's orbit around the sun forms a surface referred to as the "Plane of the Ecliptic." When you measure the Earth's axial tilt (i.e., the angle between the Earth's axis and the plane of the ecliptic), it is currently is about 23.4 degrees (it does wobble a bit on a 41,000-year cycle). This is why the stands have the globe tilted. More on axial tilt can be found at:
