    Earth’s Magnetic Pole Shifting?

    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.

    I am not a scientist but believe that all that metallic space junk could have something to do with it.

    Doubtful. Alto I tried to find out what the total amount of space debris is compared to that of the solid core. I could find neither quickly. But my gut says that the core has more mass. Not to mention that not all the debris out there are effected by magnetic fields. Not to mention that it is spread out, not evenly but also not concentrated at one point as illustrated on this picture :



    Now do this thought experiment, or do it for real, take a heavy magnet and spread around various lighter metals that are attracted to magnetic fields. Do you think those objects might move the magnet.

    Not to mention that the magnetic poles are moving all the time. And even sometimes flips. Now this nasa article seems to suggest that the speed has become higher lately, but does not give potential reasons why nor when it started happening. But the picture provided seems to suggest 1984 :

    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Supposedly the Earth has a solid inner nickel-iron core surrounded by a larger molten outer core ..... who knows how things might shift around in there. Perhaps there are convection currents in the molten core and maybe the solid inner core just moves more erratically than some might think (I just read it may rotate at a different speed than the surface of the Earth.


    Just seems to me, the inner core may (or even outer core) may be somewhat variable and cause shifts in the magnetic field.


    that's my guess anyway

    It's a long known fact that the poles shifted several times during Earth's existence. When such a pole shift happens, the magnetic field collapses for a short while, which indeed would be bad, but probably not as bad as one would imagine. Earth has experienced several mass extinction events, but none is related to pole shifts. If for some weird coincidence just in this time the sun decides to erupt massive amounts of material, the worst that would happen is a total overkill of all tech stuff (like the EMP that darkened Canada for some days some years back).

    Earth atmosphere itself blocks out a lot of the rays flying around in space, stabilisation of the magnetic field after a possible collapse will be relatively quick once the pole is done with shifting, which may well be a quick event of hours or few days. So, while it all sounds super scary, it probably wont be something devastating. The poles are not in the geographic location where they "should be" anyway, the magnetic pole wanders all the time and no one even notices. It doesnt change Earth's position or angle to the sun, and as Ravenrune pointed out, the inner core acts sort of independend of the crust. It wont turn the world upside down.^^ Just maybe dont go sun bathing while the field is weak.

    For those interested in desaster prophecies, I will add that there are prophecies for such an event (or rather the prophecies have been projected onto pole shift events by today's interpreters) that include three days of darkness and the entire southern hemisphere being literally sterilised (Australians, SA and maybe NZ should consider a vacation on the northern hemisphere). But, that would mean that also the atmosphere itself is being blown away and then we would be in huge trouble indeed, regardless of where one is. As said, however, the mass extinction events earth experienced where all caused by other things, not pole shifts. So I'd think, unless other things happen at the same time (like a mass eruption of the sun or Nibiru showing up or who knows, Pluto crashes into Saturn or whatever), it wouldnt be as worse as some scaremongers make it out. If it is, we'll get the most spectacular show for our end imaginable, so... enjoy

    Aviators and navigators call this magnetic variation and must be figured into course plotting if doing it the old fashioned way. This method is taught as basic navigation to every new prospective pilots in both civilian and military courses.

    If you don't learn to do these calculations you will never understand how it affects navigation course plotting.

    Aviation charts are issued on a regular periodic cycle to account for the shift of this magnetic variation (whether or not it actually shifts).
