I have to work offline right now, but this is something I know a lot about, here are a few details:
First of all, I’d like to state that it is a certainty - a pole shift is
definitely coming and there is irrefutable proof it will definitely
happen geologically written into the rocks at the bottom of the Atlantic
We have all heard of continental drift and crustal movement of the
Earth. And one place where a lot of spreading is happening is at the
bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. The spreading zone is approximately 1000
miles off the West coasts of Europe and Africa. Scientists have studied
the spreading zones, and there they have proven that Earth really does
flip it’s magnetic poles quite frequently.
When studying the spreading zone, scientists have studied the rock that
has been produced to fill the gap (from magma coming up from the mantle)
and there they have found the world’s best proof that pole shifting is
as common to the earth’s life as the changing of the seasons are to us.
They have been able to prove this because in the spreading zone, the
magnetic orientation of the rocks points both north and south in
alternating rows. This magnetic orientation can only be set when the
rocks are liquid magma, which gets it’s magnetic orientation set by the
position of the Earth’s magnetic poles as it solidifies.
On the bottom of the Atlantic ocean, there is a perfect
geological record which proves beyond all doubt that in geological
terms, the Earth’s magnetic poles move quite frequently. And when they
do, there is chaos.
Aside from the obvious, such as migratory animals having to re-orientate
to get to where they need to go for the changing of the seasons (which
no doubt sparks extinctions of some species) there are two huge things
to consider, that are probably a lot more important.
First of all the earth’s crust is magnetic in nature, and it is
predominantly magnetic in one direction, with (at this time) the crust’s
own general magnetic alignment opposite that of the core’s magnetic
alignment (to satisfy magnetic attraction) where opposite poles attract
and similar poles repel. Obviously you know that the crust can move,
because it floats on a molten core. It therefore seeks a polarity
opposite that which is in the Earth’s core, because with magnetism
The magnetic field in the Earth’s core is overwhelmingly dominant over
the crust, but the crust itself has significant magnetism, and this is
very important during a pole shift because if the center magnetic field
flips opposite, the crust will want to follow to balance out
During the first year or so, I would not expect to see much action as
far as movement of the crust is concerned. But over the years, the
crust would definitely accelerate in it’s movement, and even if it only
moved a few feet a year, there would be geological mayhem of a sort
mankind has never witnessed. Massive earthquakes. Huge volcanoes.
“end of the world” type stuff. And no one knows exactly how fast the
crust moves during a pole reversal, all that is known is that it
definitely does. What if it only took a few years to completely change
it’s equatorial orientation? That would be catastrophic.
In the models that I have seen, Antarctica becomes equatorial. The
crust does not do a total flip, it only goes half way or so. And it
is extremely important to note the fossil records, which put various
species in areas they should never be if the position of the Earth’s
crust really does stay stationary for even 100,000 years.
Though I myself am not worried about a pole shift simply because I do
not worry about that type of thing because we can’t do anything about
it anyway (my bother is political, which we can have influence on) it
is a cold hard reality that pole reversal is indeed even in terms of
our own lives and civilization timeline something we should seriously
consider, IT CAN happen, IT DOES happen, and IT WILL happen, WE ARE DUE
FOR IT, and when that time comes, there will definitely be chaos.
