Earths Magnetic Pole Shifting Accelerates

Magnetic Pole

The Earth has a magnetic north pole and a geographic north pole, but the Earth’s magnetic pole is shifting at an accelerated rate over the past few years. New research conducted by the European Space Agency and its three-satellite mission called SWARM, shows that the Earth’s magnetic north pole is moving south towards Siberia. The satellites were launched in November of last year for the purpose of investigating the Earth’s magnetic fields. The fields have been found to act as a shield against space and solar radiation, and also to help moderate the Earth’s climate.

Scientists have also determined with information from the SWARM satellites, that over the past six months, there has been a marked decrease in the power of the Earth’s magnetic field by up to 15 percent. Some of the many risks involved in a weakening of the Earth’s magnetic fields include climate change, increased solar storms which can cause the electrical grid to collapse, temporary ozone holes and possible increased exposure to radiation leading to an increased rate of cancer in humans.

The shift in acceleration of the Earth’s magnetic poles originates from the planet’s core. Large areas of the Western Hemisphere have seen decreased power in the magnetic field while a large area in the southern Indian Ocean has seen an increase in the field’s power. Scientists will be able to continue analyzing data from the SWARM satellites over the next few months to determine if these findings match up with other signal orientations from the rest of the Earth layers such as the ionosphere, mantle, crust, oceans and magnetosphere.

The last magnetic pole reversal for earth occurred 780,000 years ago, but over the course of the last 20 million years the pattern of pole reversals has been at a steady 200,000-300,000 years. Since researchers first located the magnetic pole back in the early Nineteenth Century, it has meandered over 600 miles. Back in the early Twentieth Century the pole was moving at just 10 miles per year, but that rate has accelerated up to around 40 miles per year. This yearly shifting of the pole is believed to be caused by the Earth’s liquid outer core, which is made of metal and flows around the sold metal inner core very slowly, thus shifting the magnetic field.

Usually a magnetic pole reversal takes thousands of years, but there has been some recent evidence that rapid magnetic field reversals occur. Back in the 1960s scientists located partial evidence that an extremely rapid, but short-term pole reversal happened just 41,000 years ago. This research was found in a small village of Laschamp, France where in 2012 scientists revisited the site to find that the reversal lasted only a little over 400 years and the strength of the field was weakened to just 25 percent of what today’s magnetic field strength is currently producing.

Other recent finds include evidence found in Oregon in 1995 and Nevada in 2010, where hardened lava was examined and found to indicate the that the magnetic field had moved 53 degrees in a single year, and in one instance up to six degrees in a single day, which is over 10,000 times faster than usual. Some believe that these movements of the Earth’s magnetic fields from the shifting of the Earth’s mantle could lead to increases in volcanic activity, while others have noted the correlation between the magnetic shift 41,000 years ago and the dying off of the Neanderthals in Europe. If the Earth’s magnetic pole continues to accelerate at a more rapid pace, the results will likely be more dangerous than if they gradually move over the course of thousands of years like many scientists believe is common.

    IT HAD STARTED JANUARY 2012.. PEOPLE WERE POSTING VIDEOS ABOUT A 13TH BIRTHSIGN.. THAT WAS VISABLE IN BABYLON AND DURING THE TIMES OF NOSTRADAMUS …. SOMEONE CHECK THE WEATHER PATERNS DURING THOSE TIMES.!

    Jesus was not a prophet but the Son of God. He is God in the flesh, God incarnate. not a prophet. there is only one way to heaven & thats through Jesus.

    the life is in the blood. how much more the precious blood of God shed to cleanse us of our sins.

    John 14.6

    Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

    Peter….. I am sure you believe whole heartedly in your God, and creationist theories but really, c’mon, this has nothing to do with a man-made God this has to do what mother earth is doing what she does every now and again.

    God….your God, anyone’s God, they all the same one so why can’t you can’t all get together and join hands and just love each other? Imagine that all humanity loving each other regardless whether you are black, white, yellow, red, man, woman, gay, trans, bi, or any other shade of grey or in between any of those descriptions? Just drop the religion thing and understand we are all from the same source, humanity, that piece of you that is the quintessential basis of your life called the soul that never dies and will return to the source, whether you believe in any God or not.

    If the poles shift and most of the human spirits leave their bodies here they will go back to where they come from, the source and so will you, then you will understand the true meaning of eternity because there is no death, we are all spiritual beings of light, regardless of what we believe so peace and love to you, may your journey be one of enlightenment and acceptance.

    The answer for these events is in each and everyone of us. Each one of us must realize that no atom in our body nor outside our body (the Universe) is made by coincidence, but created. Also, everything that has been created is created exclusively for our benefit, as a species and as a created collective entity. However, through his arrogance, man decided to develop different theories about his emergence on earth, as well as theories of the formation of the Universe, putting aside, with pride and ignorance, the most clear and most obvious answer to existence itself: The Creator – Eternal, not made – created The Universe. The Creator created mankind. The Creator made you and me, and has made our stay in His Garden (i.e. The Earth) pleasant and bountiful. And what has man done to thank Him? Man has rejected His existence. Man has destroyed one another. Man has destroyed and corrupted His Creation…and so forth.
    Just imagine: if your father where to invite you to the best of holidays, in one of the best of locations on earth, with the best accommodations, and upon your arrival, you would banish him, speak badly of him, call him names and ignore him, while wanting to enjoy the holiday he presented to you as a gift…it would be the behavior of a mad man! Well, that is how mankind has answered to the kindness of its Creator, as a mad creature…

    And while every atom of our body, as well as our souls, are in His full control, and He takes no benefit from our existence (nor does “mother nature”), He is still waiting for us to realize: once we did not exist, now we exist. We cannot create ourselves, He has created us.

    So first of all, we need to be thankful for our own existence, and then thankful for everything He has bestowed upon us.
    This was the purpose of the Prophets He has sent to us (Noah, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad – peace and blessings upon them all): to remind us that we are created and to abide by the rules of our Creator.
    As a last note, Noah called his people for 950 years to turn towards God! But they refused, as they were arogant and proud. We all know what happened to them…

    So, to which do you belong? The proud and doubtful? (i.e. created by “evolution”)
    Or are you from among the believers?

    Think fast, time is not on our side.

    Mayans were not talking about the end of the world…rather the end of an age cycle…no thanks to Hollywood for the confusion.
