The Dramatic Shift in the Magnetic Poles

This video is worth watching. It details the dramatic shift of the magnetic poles over the last 100 years, and how that shift is accelerating. 

Fast Facts: 

  1. The south pole has already left antarctica and the north pole is racing across the arctic ocean.
  2. “Earth’s magnetic poles are getting ready to flip.” -Mission Manager, SWARM/ESA
  3. The magnetic field began weakening in 1600.
  4. The magnetic field weakened 10% from the 1800s to 2000.
  5. Earth’s magnetic field was weakening 5% per century, but now is weakening 5% per decade.
  6. As of 2014 the magnetic field is continuing to weaken rapidly.
  7. Magnetic reversals can occur in less than 100 years.

Google links to a lot of scientific research on the topic. https://www.google.ca/search?q=shifting+magnetic+pole&oq=shifting+magneti&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57j0l4.3520j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=earth+magnetic+field+reversal

I highly recommend you take the time to watch this well produced video on what’s going on.
