Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

My answer was a joke Roland Unfortunately they didn't have a Polish Explorer icon . . . and real Vikings didn't have horns.

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

On the floor of the Atlantic there is a crack running N to S and is constantly opening up separating the two tectonic plates. As they separate, the molten lave oozing out solidifies with it's molecules polarized N to S. This happens for 2 million years then the Poles flip and then the molecules are polarized in reverse for another 2 million years. That's why there are opposite polarized stripes along the crack all the way across the ocean floor. Thousands of stripes each one representing a 2 million year polar magnetic flip ! Are you still with me ? The problem comes when the elasticity building up to the point where the Crust slips on the earths mantel and the oceans stay put and end up covering the continents for a few days effectively wiping out life on most of the planet. That's the reason for the construction of those underground cities under the USA. The CIA has released a 57 page report on this matter. So get ready for the ride of your life ! Or not !

Not just volcanos, either. The earthquake near Kaikoura (north-west of the South Island, New Zealand) a couple of years back lifted the seabed anything up to 5 metres or more, such that any chart showing entrances to that (the only port within 100nm) are pretty much "anything goes". Without local knowledge of current conditions it's a non-starter. The road in the image below used to be right on the coastline.

I tried driving on the wrong side of the road in Miami, nearly took out a cop car in shopping center, I had to promise them if they would show me the way to the airport I promise I won't come back 🤣 Ha ha, jokes on them........ I did 🤣

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

Will we have to stand on our heads to read the compass?

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

The reversing of the poles does raise a few questions.....Will Santa be living in the North Pole or South Pole? Will the postal service know when to redirect the letters?

As to a temporary loss of the protection of the earth's magnetic field that could be a big problem. One may be in need of some serious UV protection.
The earth's magnetic field serves to deflect most of the solar wind, whose charged particles would otherwise strip away the ozone layer that protects the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation.
Interesting factoid, never gave that one any thought, but it should have been obvious all these years that the pole of a compass needle that swings to the earths pole would have an opposing charge, in order to attract.

Another interesting thing is that Direct Current flows out from the negative terminal of a battery and the positive terminal is the return point. So why do we fuse the positive side? Answer: IMHO Blindly follows stupid conventions. We could fuse either side and it doesn’t matter so long as we fuse close to the battery.

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

"Because of the increasing pole shift, a major update to the WMM was due on January 15th. The new WMM would have taken into account the last three years of scientific data, including a powerful geomagnetic pulse under South America in 2016. The update didn’t happen, and it won’t until the US government re-opens."

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

armageddon takes years to accomplish .. ohmygod we all gonna die hahahahaha
so what i have been saying for a few years has been proven correct. cooool. i have been waiting for proof.
good.
got it.
now... humans are all gonna die. we w will all need to walk on our hands and wear fur.
so chikkin little has been activated and we alllll gonna DDDIIIIIIEEEEE!!!!!
so. what is humans knee jerk reaction? TAX it. hahahahahahaha
i think mother nature doesnot take bribes, so nix that.
just deal with it like animals do. you will not awaken one day with snow on your nose.

Re: Magnetic Pole Shift causing Armageddon!

A position or location charted 100 years ago when the magnetic north pole was in a different location than today should be just as actuate as it was then baring other anomalies and errors if proper adjustment for magnetic variations were made by the chart maker then and by the user today.

With today's technology the notion that using magnetic north as if it were sacred is soooo yesterday.

All navigation should be in TRUE. Airplanes today don't even have whiskey compasses anymore but aviation charts and runway markings are still in magnetic. But if enter "N Pole" in the airplane's navigation system and hit execute if gives me the magnetic heading, time and distance to the actual physical north pole not the magnetic one. Whereas mariners, at least when you take the USCG exam, are required to work initially in magnetic and convert to TRUE on their charts. Go figure.

Its called working to a baseline using existing info..
Invent a compass that shows true N and you can buy the best boat money can buy..
