Default Earth’s Magnetic Poles Show Signs They’re About to Flip

Man another thing to worry about in the next few years.


Earth’s Magnetic Poles Show Signs They’re About to Flip—Exposing Humans to Radiation and Planet-Wide Blackouts

Kastalia Medrano, Newsweek•January 30, 2018

Historically, Earth’s North and South magnetic poles have flipped every 200,000 or 300,000 years—except right now, they haven’t flipped successfully for about 780,000 years. But the planet’s magnetic field is at long last showing signs of shifting. Although there’s no way to know yet for sure, it could be gearing up to flip once more, according to Undark Magazine. And that possibility is raising new speculation about what that means for planetary life.

Our planet’s magnetic field protects us from lethal levels of radiation from phenomena like solar rays. The dangerous particles never hit us directly, because upon entering the Earth’s atmosphere the magnetic field deflects them and forces them to move around, according to NASA. So the prospect of that field weakening, which it does when it’s getting ready to flip, is worrisome:

It would leave us without sufficient protection.

@mlurp
Don't worry about things beyond your sphere of influence or control. It's a waste of time an energy.
But if you insist on being concerned, the closer you are to the equator, the less impact the flipping of magnetic poles has.

At least folks aren't claiming that this is caused by human emissions.

At the risk of giving fools an idea, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they tried to claim that AGW will exacerbate the situation were it to happen.

I kind of don't worry about things outside my control to begin with.. Life is easier that way...

But it sounded better than hey look were about to see the planet flip! Don't you think so Bat? By the way thanks for the advise any way..

If the earths poles flip in my lifetime I promise to buy a steak dinner for every PETA member.
See how I hedged my bet there?
The poles will flip at some point and that activity will probably cause some problems. Earth will survive though.

Would that be with animal [dogs, cats, pony, tiger, lion and the l[Ike][/I] meats?

I see that you're buying dinner one way or the other... Dang well know these dems want that dinner...

, as it has several times before.... Yet will creatures with back bones survive..

matter as the Milky Way is slowly destroying itself..
