Earth’s magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we don’t know why

  • Earth’s magnetic field is what allows us to exist. It deflects harmful radiation. It keeps our water and atmosphere in place. But now it’s acting up — and nobody knows why.


    Planet Earth is alive. Deep beneath its skin, its life blood — rivers of molten iron — pulse around its core. And this mobile iron is what generates the magnetic field that causes auroras — and keeps us alive.

    But, according to the science journal Nature, something strange is going on deep down below.

    It’s causing the magnetic North Pole to ‘skitter’ away from Canada, towards Siberia.

    “The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reports..................................................................................


    WTF ?????????????????????

  • Magnetic North has only been tracked for 200 years or less, this could be quite normal over the billions of years the magnetic field has existed. Maybe a million years ago up was down.

    Yes, nothing new here. This has been evident for quite a while. Anyone recall in Florida a number of years ago they had to realign the taxiways at airports because they fell out of calculated alignments with compasses???

    Yep... I remember them doing that!
