    If you could change the center of gravity to one pole (by definition there is only one center of gravity in any body) you would probably get a terrible precession effect in the rotation of the earth.

    Of course, it can't be done.  There is no possibility of building a supporting structure strong enough to hold the mass at the pole and keep it from sinking to the center of the earth.

    What a question!

    The center of gravity does tend to be in the, um, center area. That is like saying, what if the core of the planet was on the surface, what would happen?  Well, the planet would have exploded so I doubt we would be around to worry about it.
