North Pole Movement

Earth's north magnetic pole is racing toward Russia at almost 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year due to magnetic changes in the planet's core, new research says. The core is too deep for scientists to directly detect its magnetic field. But researchers can infer the field's movements by tracking how Earth's magnetic field has been changing at the surface and in space.

Now, newly analyzed data suggest that there's a region of rapidly changing magnetism on the core's surface, possibly being created by a mysterious "plume" of magnetism arising from deeper in the core.

And it's this region that could be pulling the magnetic pole away from its long-time location in northern Canada, said Arnaud Chulliat, a geophysicist at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris in France.

Havent you heard. Obama sold Magnetic north to Russia to fund his new

The pole kept going during the 20th century, north at an average speed of 10 km per year, lately accelerating "to 40 km per year," says Newitt. At this rate it will exit North America and reach Siberia in a few decades.

Keeping track of the north magnetic pole is Newitt's job. "We usually go out and check its location once every few years," he says. "We'll have to make more trips now that it is moving so quickly."

Earth's magnetic field is changing in other ways, too: Compass needles in Africa, for instance, are drifting about 1 degree per decade. And globally the magnetic field has weakened 10% since the 19th century. When this was mentioned by researchers at a recent meeting of the American Geophysical Union, many newspapers carried the story. A typical headline: "Is Earth's magnetic field collapsing?"

Probably not. As remarkable as these changes sound, "they're mild compared to what Earth's magnetic field has done in the past," says University of California professor Gary Glatzmaier. Sometimes the field completely flips. The north and the south poles swap places. Such reversals, recorded in the magnetism of ancient rocks, are unpredictable. They come at irregular intervals averaging about 300,000 years; the last one was 780,000 years ago. Are we overdue for another? No one knows.

According to Glatzmaier, the ongoing 10% decline doesn't mean that a reversal is imminent. "The field is increasing or decreasing all the time," he says. "We know this from studies of the paleomagnetic record." Earth's present-day magnetic field is, in fact, much stronger than normal. The dipole moment, a measure of the intensity of the magnetic field, is now 8 1022 amps m2. That's twice the million-year average of 4 1022 amps m2.

To understand what's happening, says Glatzmaier, we have to take a trip ... to the center of the Earth where the magnetic field is produced.

AWESOME!!

Do we get to ride coal cars like they did in the movie?

To sum up: the locations of a planets poles and its orbit are determined by its electromagnetic charge. Therefore, a new very different electromagnetic field can indeed bring a different location of the poles and possibly even in a new orbit for a planet resulting in a new material dimension.

Matter follows energy's lead!

A sudden shift in the poles' locations triggers major cataclysms. As the rotational plane changes the planet's matter is subjected to the forces of inertia reacting to this change. The water in oceans and lakes suddenly are moved in a different direction. The water is piled up and tremendous waves pound the coastlines. Ancient legends tell of floods, which reached hundreds of miles into continents destroying everything in their paths. The Biblical Flood and the Great Flood mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh for sure were caused by such an event. Legends from South America tell of a time, when ocean waves piled up more than a mile high on the western edge of the Andes.

The atmosphere from one moment to the other is moved in a different direction while inertia keeps the air in its previous path. Hurricanes and tornadoes pale in comparison to the forces of winds unleashed in this scenario. The areas water can't reach are hit hard by storms, which can reach wind speeds of hundreds of miles.

The sudden shift in the rotation of the planet breaks open the Earth's crust and lava flows cover wide areas. There is evidence, for instance in the Columbia plateau that such lava flows can extend and have extended over the low lands of entire continents. Continental shelves slam into ocean floors. New mountain ranges form and existing formations are forced high up. The Andes in South America are a very good example of such events, which explains sandy beaches and sea shells thousands of feet up. The same situation is found in the Alps, where seashells and fossilized sea creatures are found high up together with sandy beaches - and this in the middle of a continent. Many volcanoes erupt and spew huge amounts of dust high into the atmosphere.

The climate all over the planet changes at the moment of the jump of the poles. Depending on the new location of the poles tropical lands can become deep frozen in an instant, as the deep temperature and raging ice cold winds tear the warmth out of everything in the new polar region. Other climatic zones change in an instant according to their new location.

There is ample evidence of polar jumps all over the planet, as traces of Glaciation are found everywhere. The impact of these events on biological organisms is devastating. Not only is the loss of life horrendous. If a jump of the poles is accompanied by an orbital jump the temperature range of the entire planet will change. Species not suited to live in this range will be wiped out.

This explains why in the course of the Earth's history sometimes up to 90 percent of the species were wiped out. - The Perm, Trias and the Jurassic extinctions are well-documented examples.

But extinctions did not happen only in remote geological times. The last one wiped out the mammoths, the mastodons, saber tooth tigers and other so-called ice age animals only several thousand years ago. Fossil remains and geological evidence proof beyond the shadow of a doubt that the cycles of creation, evolution, and destruction are part of this planet's history. Life as such has survived all these cataclysms but there is no way telling which life forms will survive such a brutal scenario.

There is evidence of polar jumps during the last 50,000 years after humans had appeared on the fossil record. Humans survived where other species died out. It remains to be seen how humans will fare when the next jump of the poles takes place.

is this all part of that 2012 thing?

just a coincidence right?

And yet we are worried about global warming. What about when the sun dies. What about the giant asteroid that could smash into the earth. Earth quakes, volcanoes???

does all that happen before or after the 2012 thing?
